About Design a Logo for Eco Rating of Hotels, Homestays, resorts around Tiger reserves

 

Tourism the largest and fastest-growing sector in the has deep-seated dependence on the environment.

 

In India the tiger is an iconic flagship species and the Tiger reserves receive more than one million visitors annually. A substantial number of responsible tourists look for places of stay that are environment-friendly with minimum carbon foot-prints, i.e. places of stay that have proper strategies and processes in place for waste management, energy savings, water conservation measures etc. These places of stay present an exciting opportunity for tourists to become stakeholders in conservation efforts around the Tiger Reserves.

 

India presently has 53 Tiger Reserves spread across the country. Some of the Tiger Reserves (TR), like Kanha TR, Ranthambore TR, Periyar TR, Bandipore TR, Kaziranga TR etc. are very popular tourist destinations with very high footfall and one of the reasons for their popularity is availability of quality places of stay in large numbers.

 

Government of India is involved in setting standards for different sectors in India. For example, the star rating of hotels is carried out by the Ministry of Tourism; the standards-compliance mark for industrial products in India is ISI (Indian Standards Institution) under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs; the certification mark for agricultural products in India, AGMARK, is under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, etc.

 

Accordingly, it would be prudent that standards, based primarily on environmental, ecological & social parameters are developed, for places of stay around Tiger Reserves. These places of stay shall then be rated and certified based on standards issued by the NTCA under the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change. At the same time it would be important to give a name to this initiative of NTCA, i.e. come out with a nomenclature for Eco Rating of places of stay around the Tiger Reserves, which captures the essence of the endeavor. Some of the international endeavors have been named as Eco Star, Green Seal, Green key, Green Globe, Green Leaders, TOFTigers, etc.

 

This rating and certification would give the visitors an idea regarding the meaningful efforts by the hotel/homestay towards saving our planet, by its contribution towards maintaining the environmental health and well-being of the local communities.

 

Certification and the degree of rating (from higher to lower) will reflect the social and environmental standards of these places.

 

By choosing places of stay with high ratings will instil confidence and satisfaction in the tourists regarding their contribution towards sustainable tourism.

 

 

What is required?

 

 

Logo should preferably depict the essence of the tiger, the bio-diversity, the ethnic communities residing around Tiger Reserves, the idea of responsible tourists staying in a rated and certified place of stay, the harmony with nature etc.

 

The logo shall also serve as the rating symbol (say 1 to 5), such as the “Star” in case of Hotels or electrical appliances.

 

A certificate, with the value of the rating, shall be handed over to the respective Place of Stay as a testimony of the rating earned by them based on their compliance with various parameters on the environment, ecology, commitment towards community and the Tiger Reserves etc.

 

 

Terms and conditions:

 

 

1. The Intellectual Property Right of all the entries for the logo shall vest with the NTCA upon their submission.

2. NTCA can, if required, change/modify or merge the concept of the logo.
