A key element of the GDS-Index is to determine a destination's environmental performance. We do this by examining aspects like a destinations air quality, their use of renewable energy sources and the performance of their public transport and waste disposal infrastructure.
In a holistic approach to sustainability, the GDS-Index factors in the social performance of a destination, including elements such as the city's United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) and ranking in global corruption indices.
For an events industry specific analysis, the GDS-Index evaluates the sustainable practices of industry suppliers such as hotels, caterers and venues.
The role Convention Bureaux play in the sustainability performance of their destination is a central to GDS-Index benchmarking. Convention Bureau performance is based on their sustainability strategy and reporting, the client support offered and their role in promoting sustainability in the industry.
