‘Green Globe 21’ is an international benchmarking and certification system in which organizations such as the World Tourism Organization (WTO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) are members. The World Tourism and Travel Council (WTTC) developed the system in 1993 on the basis of the Australian ‘Eco Certification Program’,  ‘Agenda 21’ and ISO standards.
The Green Globe Company Standard is designed for organizations within the travel and tourism industry and sets out the criteria to attain certification. It provides an environmental management framework for organizations to achieve sustainability.

At the first stage, as an affiliate, an applicant is registered as a member and receives a receipt of information. The applicant prepares for the next stage of the process and introduces the performance-oriented requirements in the higher levels. The label was taken out of use in 2008.
