Leading Mexican tourism companies and associations commit to the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics

“Today you are committing your company to the integration of ethical norms and responsible practices in all its operations and policies,” said Mr. Rifai. “Without the private sector committing to economic, social and ethical responsibility, tourism cannot achieve its goals,” he added.

Adopted in 1999 by the UNWTO General Assembly and endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2001, the UNWTO Global Code of Ethics for Tourism is a set of principles designed to guide the development of tourism in a way that maximizes the socio-economic benefits of the sector, while minimizing any negative impacts.
