Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool – Overview

The GBTA Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool is composed of a demographics section and 10 categories (listed below) and is designed to give organisations an overall understanding of where they stand in terms of sustainability initiatives within their travel program.


Start the assessment by going to the Start Assessment tab. There, please first complete the demographic section and then proceed with the Overall Sustainability Programme category followed by the Policies and Procedures one. Once you have completed these, you will be able to complete any of the other 7 categories in the order you desire.


Starting with the Overall Sustainability Programme category, you will receive a set of recommendations (visit the My SSAT - Recommendations section once a category is complete) you can use to understand what are your organisation’s strengths and gaps in sustainability as they related to travel. You will receive a set of recommendations after each category has been completed. You do not have to complete all the categories at once; take the assessment at your own pace and just remember to come back to either update your responses or continue your path through the tool.


In the Summary section you will find a snap shot of how you are doing within the self-assessment. Each time you complete a category (with the exception of the Overall Sustainability Program) you will be scored based on your answers which determine the level of maturity your program is at. For a description of the levels, please visit the “Levels” section of this assessment. Once you have completed all categories, your overall maturity level will be determined.
