Today, Destination Greater Victoria has announced the capital city has received a unique Biosphere Certification by the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI).

The Biosphere Certification represents leading environmental initiatives, a focus on ecological well-being, while driving economic development for the community. 

Joining an elite group of international tourism destinations recognized for their commitment to principles of environmental sustainability, cultural diversity, and social responsibility, Victoria has been recognized after completing a rigorous and collaborative assessment of the capital’s environment practices. 

In alignment with the 17 sustainable Development Goals adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, the Biosphere Certification is the first sustainability certification aligned with the 2030 agenda that aims to promote sustainable development actions and programmes in tourism destinations.

In 2018, the City of Victoria launched the Climate Leadership Plan which is a roadmap to reducing community-wide emissions by 80% from 2007 levels by 2050 and making the switch to 100% renewable energy.
