Since 2009, Adventure Green Alaska (AGA) has been the state’s only sustainable tourism certification program. AGA is the result of a statewide effort to grow sustainable tourism in Alaska, and promote model businesses practicing economic, environmental and social sustainability. The AGA standards, criteria and the application process are important means to ensuring that the AGA program and its members are able to represent and take the lead in developing the sustainable tourism industry in Alaska.
For tourism businesses practicing careful stewardship and working to sustain Alaska’s natural and cultural resources, AGA certification is recognition of your business’ leadership and action. AGA also encourages all tourism businesses to evaluate their operations and determine whether they use – or could be using – best sustainable management practices.
