BPDS set out a holistic sustainability framework that enables undertaking an integrated assessment of the expected environmental, social, cultural and economic performance of a project. Projects that adopt the BPDS can quantifiably demonstrated significant operational cost reductions, regenerative environmental outcomes and positive social and cultural values. The benchmarking and certification software at the core of this initiative is leading the way in the sustainability movement within the tourism sector.
