Within the INCIRCLE Project the Sustainability Management Laboratory of the Institute Scuola Superiore Sant’ Anna is mainly involved in developing a framework for measuring the circular performance in the tourism sector.
This activity created two specific tools or “Circular Tourism Tools” for assessing the circularity performance:
· Circular Tourism Destination Tool: for tourism destinations
· Circular Tourism Industry Tool: for the main types of tourism industries
These tools have been tested on 10 INCIRCLE partners and on 2 tourism industries and have been updated thanks to the feedback received from them. The Laboratory has also developed a dataset of good practices that tourism actors can consult to find the most suitable to be adopted in their context.
The tools, as well as the best practice dataset, will soon be put online on the Knowledge Platform to be accessible to all.
