Sustainable Practices and Tourism: Feasible Business Models for the Caribbean
It is true that the implementation of sustainability practices can reveal tremendous challenges. And the relationships between corporate strategies and sustainable development evolve along various dimensions that can be seen at times not as straightforward praxis, when addressing matters of choices, policy regulations, compliance and reporting mechanisms.
However, despite the odds, it is quite interesting to explore the relevance and adaptation of such a concept when some initiatives have been set to steer the development and engagement of strategic planning processes, where some of these initiatives pave the way and aim toward better integration of market-based systems to strengthen productivity, efficiency and environmental protection. In fact, it all comes down to Best Practices, and the mapping of capacity building schemes to drive and sustain innovative programs.

As an example the upcoming Green Tourism Conference that will be held in Jamaica, November 1 – 3 2006 will convene such a forum gearing toward the identification of business models vis-à-vis sustainability practices, and the greening of the tourism industry in the Caribbean.
