Adventure Green Alaska (AGA) is ATIA’s voluntary certification program for sustainable tourism businesses operating in Alaska. AGA-certified companies believe that outstanding Alaska experiences can also be sustainable and of benefit to visitors and hosts alike. Using standards of sustainable management and economic, environmental, and social sustainability, AGA encourages tourism businesses to evaluate their operations and determine whether they use – or could be using – best sustainable practices.
Qualifying for certification earns businesses the right to use the AGA label and to participate in AGA promotional opportunities under ATIA.
In September 2019, AGA’s standards for accommodations and tour operators were fully recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s (GSTC) accreditation panel. Read more here.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: There are two AGA application cycles each year, with deadlines on May 31 and November 30.
