Events: a sector with significant impacts
The events sector has a significant impact on the environment. It is the source of a large consumption of local resources (water, electricity) and a large accumulation of waste.
Organizing events can also create tensions due to cultural differences or proximity to the neighborhood. Finally, the multiplicity of partners involved makes overall cohesion and the measurement of impacts more difficult.
Thus, these activities can negatively impact the environment.
Invictus implements a concrete approach: evaluation of the practices of our partners
To pave the way for better collaboration, to be more attentive to your needs and to reduce the environmental footprint of your events and trips, Invictus is committed to a responsible approach.
We questioned and assessed the practices of all of our service providers acting on the value chain of our services, regarding their CSR (corporate social responsibility) approach.
Our mission: to establish better collaboration, a positive ecological and social footprint for each of our events and trips, in order to meet your needs and amaze you every day.
Thus, we highlight the positive impact actions generated by your events and trips organized by the Invictus value chain.
The World Tourism Organization
The UNWTO is a United Nations specialized agency dedicated to promoting and developing tourism. It plays a role in promoting the development of responsible, sustainable and accessible tourism for all, while ensuring the interests of developing countries.
Tourism has the potential to contribute, directly or indirectly, to all of the Sustainable Development Goals. It is mentioned in particular in the targets of goals 8, 12 and 14, which relate, respectively, to shared and sustainable economic growth, sustainable consumption and production patterns and the sustainable use of oceans and marine resources.
The 3 main objectives of sustainable tourism:
1 / Optimal use of environmental resources, a key element of tourism development, by maintaining essential ecological processes and helping to conserve natural heritage and biodiversity.
2 / Respect the socio-cultural authenticity of the host communities, conserve their built and living cultural heritage and their traditional values, and contribute to intercultural understanding and tolerance.
3 / Ensure viable long-term economic operations, which provide all stakeholders with equitably distributed socio-economic benefits, including stable jobs, income opportunities and social services for host communities, and which contribute to poverty reduction.
Sustainable tourism development requires the informed participation of all relevant stakeholders, as well as strong political leadership to ensure broad participation and consensus building.
Achieving sustainable tourism is a continuous process and requires constant monitoring of impacts, introducing the necessary preventive and / or corrective measures whenever necessary.
Sustainable tourism also aims to maintain a high level of satisfaction of tourists and ensure them a meaningful experience, by raising awareness of sustainability issues and promoting among them sustainable tourism practices.
