Set of criteria of the sustainable tourism Green Lotus Label issued

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has just issued a set of criteria of the sustainable tourism Green Lotus Label applied for tourism accommodation in Viet Nam.

The certificate of the sustainable tourism Green Lotus Label (Green Lotus Label) is granted to tourism accommodation which meet standards on environmental protection and sustainable development, making efforts to protect the environment, use natural resources and energy efficiently, contribute to preservation of heritage and development of the local economy, culture and society, and pursue sustainable tourism development.


The Green Lotus Label has 5 levels, from 1 green lotus to 5 green lotuses which recognizes efforts of accommodations to protect environment and develop sustainable tourism not depending on the rank and type of accommodations.


The set of criteria for the sustainable tourism Green Lotus Label includes 81 criteria with total 154 points and 25 bonus points, dividing into 3 levels: basic level (30 criteria), encouraging level (29 criteria), high level (22 criteria).


At the same time, the set of criteria is categorized into 4 groups: A, B, C, D including specific articles (A1, A2 ...; B1, B2 ...) followed by criteria to define the requirements of each article.

In the next 3 years, the set of criteria will, if necessary, be amended and supplemented to match with technological development and knowledge of environment.
