EarthCheck secures Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Business Award

EarthCheck secures Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Business Award
November 7, 2018

EarthCheck, the leading scientific benchmarking, certification and advisory group for the tourism industry, has been announced as the winner of the Brisbane Lord Mayor's Business Awards for Doing Business in Asia.

A benchmark for business excellence in Brisbane, highlighting some of the city’s greatest success stories, the award follows EarthCheck winning the 2018 United Nations World Tourism Organisation Innovation Award and the Premier of Queensland’s Export Award and Queensland Tourism Industry Council Innovation in Tourism Award in 2017. 

EarthCheck founder and Chief Executive Stewart Moore said it was an honour for EarthCheck to receive home-town recognition. 

Moore advised “the Lord Mayor’s Doing Business in Asia Award not only reinforces the importance of keeping pace with innovation and technology in a very fast-moving economy but also the need to strive for continuous improvement.

A Brisbane-based company that works in 70 countries across the world, EarthCheck’s Asian clientele include world-leading travel and tourism operators and destinations that embrace best practice and corporate responsibility to positively manage their environmental and social impact.

Since 1987, EarthCheck has helped businesses, communities and governments to coordinate a more strategic approach to sustainable tourism and destination management by delivering clean, safe, prosperous and healthy destinations for travellers to visit, live, work and play. Most importantly everything that EarthCheck undertakes is underpinned by evidence based scientific data and performance based metrics.
