What´s the meaning of the leaves
Sustainability Certification program (CST)
Sustainability seeks a balanced interaction of three essential factors within the tourism industry: the proper management of natural and cultural resources; the improvement of the quality of life of the neighboring communities; and the economic success, which contributes to other national development programs.
The Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) developed the Certificate of Sustainable Tourism (CST) program for tourism companies with the goal of categorizing and differentiating Costa Rican hotels according to the degree to which their operation approaches a sustainability model, in its management of natural, cultural and social resources.
Previously, the levels were reflected on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 representing the maximum level a company could achieve in sustainable practices. To-date, there are still companies with a level 5 classification. However, currently, there are two levels of CST, the BASIC and ELITE, with the latter being the second best classification of the standard.
