significant awareness of environmental management issues
in the industry.
The awards are in line with the National Minimum Standard for Responsible Tourism, the Responsible Tourism guidelines
for the South African hospitality industry and the UN World
Tourism Organisation's code of ethics.
Imvelo is supported by the Heritage
Environmental Rating Programme.
