Green Globe Certification today announced the launch of Green Globe Brazil under a partnership with NV Consultoria Empresarial. This new partnership adds to Green Globe’s worldwide network, which includes representatives and offices in Europe, Africa, Latin America, Caribbean, and India, as well as Asia.
Mr. Guido Bauer, Green Globe Certification CEO said, “NV Consultoria Empresarial are specialists in assisting businesses across Brazil develop sustainable management strategies to meet their rapidly-changing business landscape and the ecological challenges of this fast-developing region.
“By taking on this new Green Globe partnership, NV Consultoria Empresarial now [has] access to the world’s best standard and mostly widely-accepted criteria for sustainable operation and management of businesses, which they can introduce to their numerous clients both within and outside the travel and tourism industry.”
Mr. João Carlos Noronha, NV Consultoria Empresarial Executive Director, said: “We live in an era where companies, especially those which must meet the demands of tourism, need to implement organizational management strategies and practices to ensure survival of the organization itself in the market. This survival is underpinned by service quality and protection of the environment for future generations. It is in this context that Green Globe certification directly contributes to meeting the goals of sustainability. Committing to good practices related to its stakeholders, in our view, is a one-way trip and an endless path.
“For NV Consultoria Empresarial, the partnership is a huge recognition of the 16 years of experience we have dedicated to implementing management systems geared to service quality, the environment, and social responsibility. We are delighted to take on the role of Green Globe Brazil, which fits perfectly with our ongoing mission to ‘make the pursuit of excellence a habit.'”
To assist with the roll out of Green Globe certification in Brazil, the Green Globe online certification system is now available in Portuguese. The Portuguese system includes the Green Globe Standard, Auditor Guidelines, and Green Globe Policy and Procedures.
