CSR IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Corporate Social Responsibility @ ITB Berlin
Here's what we think about global sustainability:
"Each of our ITB team members supports our efforts to create awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals - because we all believe they are effective guidelines!
We need to create better places to live in order to invite people to visit.
Responsible and sustainable tourism can be a big help in creating those places in destinations."
CSR Commissioner of ITB Berlin
What traces do our decisions leave behind?
We take responsibility
As the leading trade show for the global travel industry, ITB Berlin is also a driving force for corporate social responsibility. Ecological and social responsibility is a substantial task for the future and a prerequisite for long-term success, not just economic success.
ITB Berlin itself is committed to climate, environmental and animal protection and human rights in tourism: For social justice and equality, against any kind of discrimination, against sexual exploitation of children and women.
We pull together
In order to make a lasting difference, holistic tourism concepts and a joint commitment are needed. That is why ITB Berlin uses its key position in the market to purposefully promote dialogue between the players in the tourism value chain - tourism companies and subcontractors, research institutions, associations, government and non-profit organizations.
Together with many partners from around the world, ITB Berlin supports and promotes numerous projects in the field of Responsible Tourism.
▶ Affordable climate-conscious travel is possible
▶ Authentic encounters and experiences in the destinations are possible.
▶ Empowerment of local communities is possible

In order to drive sustainable development in tourism and promote social as well as ecological responsibility, ITB Berlin offers you a wide range of forward-looking events on the subject of corporate social responsibility every year as part of the trade show - whether on the segment stages or in the now hybrid program of the ITB Convention. We emphasize the importance of responsibility in tourism and address it through a variety of expert presentations, discussion panels, workshops, seminars and awards ceremonies, thereby raising awareness among all stakeholders and highlighting the opportunities for sustainable tourism.
A detailed program for download is available on this page before ITB Berlin each year.
Especially now it is necessary to shape the new beginning of tourism in a sustainable and responsible way!
