As there are already 978 companies in Catalonia committed to sustainability through the Biosphere certification, it has been decided to enable the platform in Catalan. From now on, companies will be able to select the language they prefer and work on their plans in a convenient and simple way. This action takes place in June, coinciding with Barcelona's sustainability month and the city's achievement of Platinum Destination status, at an event to be held at the end of the month.
Thousands of companies from all over the world have already wanted to work with this system, making Biosphere's services available in more than 6 different languages, including English, German and French. And now that there are already close to a thousand companies aspiring to certify their good practices in Catalonia, Biosphere has decided to also activate its services in Catalan, being the only platform available in this language for the certification of sustainable efforts under the principles and objectives of the United Nations.
The Biosphere sustainability certification platform and methodology, from the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI), allows the creation of customised plans for business sustainability management, based on the 2030 Agenda and the 17 SDGs of the United Nations, adapting to the type of business, the reality of the company and its resources, and at its own pace.
It is the only sustainability certification tool in the world that allows companies to know and decide how to work and improve their compliance with the SDGs and Agenda 2030 targets, monitoring their progress and efforts in real time and certifying their good practices in the process by independent experts. Companies that demonstrate their sustainable efforts in Biosphere can be audited on the same platform to obtain the Biosphere Certified seal, internationally recognised by the main search engines and tour operators such as Google, Booking, Agoda, Easyjet and TUI, among others.
