ECOTOURISM AUSTRALIA CERTIFIED
Ecotourism Australia was formed in 1991 as the Ecotourism Association of the Indo Pacific Region. The organisation was renamed the Ecotourism Association of Australia in 1992 and the world’s first National Ecotourism Accreditation Program (NEAP) was launched in 1996. In 2002, the International Year of Ecotourism, the organisation was renamed Ecotourism Australia Limited (EA).
EA was established to promote ecotourism throughout Australia and its immediate region by creating partnerships, developing and encouraging quality ecotourism experiences and providing the industry with a clear voice. The organisation’s main product development tools were the creation of certification programs that defined ecotourism and the delivery of the Annual Ecotourism Australia Conference (later renamed the Global Eco Conference).
The ECO Certification program certifies tourism products (tours, accommodations, attractions) with a primary focus on nature. It assures travellers that certified products are backed by a strong, well-managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high-quality nature-based tourism experiences. The ECO Certification Program is a world first and it has been developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and ecotourism operators.

AUSTRALIAN VETERAN OWNED BUSINESS
Australian Veteran Owned Business
The Australian Veteran Owned Business: conceptualised, founded, and operated by veterans, for veterans.
Upon returning to Australia after his third rotation to Afghanistan, the Founder and CEO of the Australian Veteran Owned Business, Mitchell, embarked on a path that so many veterans had done so before him and he started his own business. He began searching for professional associations to align his business with. What he soon realised was that, despite spending over a decade in service of Australia and its people, there were none that existed which specifically recognised his military service and brought together business owners who share the same privileged background.
The Australian Veteran Owned Business was established as a third-party certifier in order to fill this gap. Third-party certification is a process whereby an independent assessment declares that specified requirements pertaining to a product, person, process or management system have been met. In Australia, there are third party certifications for a wide range of products and services, but so far, nothing has existed which recognises veteran-owned and operated businesses – until now.
