Morocco is made up of multiple and varied landscapes formed by beaches, mountains, desert and important urban centers. It is also a country that knows how to combine this diversity with an authentic ecological responsibility.
Since the creation of the Moroccan Charter for Responsible Tourism and the Sustainable Tourism Trophies in Morocco, the country is working to make its tourism especially respectful of the environment through numerous standards. Every year there are more establishments and places in the country recognized for their environmental responsibility.
13 Moroccan beaches received the Blue Flag, an award granted annually since 1987 by the European Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and ports that meet a series of environmental conditions and facilities.
Likewise, a large number of hotel establishments throughout the country obtained the "Green Key" distinction. All these eco-labels aim to highlight the environmental efforts of their owners.
