The BC Sustainable Tourism Collective (BCSTC) was founded on the vision that travel within B.C. can foster appreciation and stewardship for the natural environment, regions and communities. For this purpose, sustainable tourism is defined as travel that ensures destinations remain unspoiled for future generations through commitment to environmental, social and economic responsibility as it relates to a company, its people, guests, local communities and the environment.
The BCSTC believes that, by supporting each other in a collective goal to become leaders in sustainable tourism, it can build value for its member companies and their guests and it can influence the tourism sector, governments and local communities to identify and implement sustainable best practices.
The BCSTC includes: Armstrong Group (Rocky Mountaineer Vacations, Gray Line West), Canadian Mountain Holidays, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, Fairmont Hotels & Resort (BC Region), Nimmo Bay Resort, Whistler/Blackcomb and Tartan Public Relations.
