    Date: November 17, 2021, from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Location: Palácio Valenças, Sintra

    Considering that the Ordinance 262/2020 came into force in February 2021, which requires an environmental certification for local accommodation and that the grace period for its implementation ends in February 2022, we will promote a clarification session for all tourism agents in Sintra who want a certification, such as: wineries, tourist entertainment, outdoor activities, etc. The questions we will address are the following:

    • Certification Framework;
    • Requirements and application processes of each partner entity;
    • Advantages
    As there are several environmental sustainability certification bodies in the Portuguese market, we invited the following companies to collaborate with us in this clarification session, in order to allow accommodation agents and others to choose the certification that interests them most:
    • Ecolabel
    • Biosphere
    • Global Eco
    • Green Key

    We also invited Turismo de Portugal to address the Sustainable Tourism Plan 20-23.
