Climate Action Certification Program
The Climate Action Certification Program (CACP) is an initiative of Sustainable Tourism Australia, a wholly owned company of Ecotourism Australia.
CACP is dedicated to ranking efforts to reduce carbon emissions and is designed for all sectors of the tourism industry, regardless of size and level of carbon reduction already undertaken. It includes the tourism hotels, attractions, tours, transport, restaurants, travel agents, tourism commissions and industry bodies.

They are measuring and auditing their carbon footprint via a creditable system and have undertaken an advanced level of adaptation, emissions reduction and offsetting and are working towards becoming carbon neutral.
Throughout Australia there are more and more organisations acquiring certification under this innovative program
