Sustainable Tourism Foundation Pakistan

  • About Us

    The Sustainable Tourism Foundation Pakistan (STFP) has been formed by a group of eminent professionals from the tourism industry as well as Environmentalists as a non-profit and non-political organization to promote environmentally responsible and sustainable practices in the tourism industry of Pakistan, as a national body. The Foundation has been registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI, 1860.


    STFP will work closely with Federal and Provincial Governmental bodies responsible for the promotion of tourism as well as network with private sector organizations and other like-minded national, regional and international bodies to facilitate and support synergy of policies, initiatives and activities at local and national level.


    Ecotourism is a well-known term around the world, and more recently the importance of sustainable tourism has been gaining recognition. Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism are closely related and if anything, ecotourism rests within the scope of sustainable tourism.

    Sustainability Practices

    Environmental Conservation:


    Pakistan’s natural environment is our greatest asset, upon which our businesses and jobs ultimately depend. It is therefore vital that we take active measures to protect our natural resources in order to guard against over-exploitation, which would undermine the ability of both current and future generations of Pakistan to benefit from them.


    Social Responsibility:


    Every individual and organization working in the tourism industry must be committed to the betterment of Pakistani society, and in particular to host communities in the areas in which they work. As representatives of Pakistan we must set a strong positive example by giving back a fair share of what we take.


    Cultural Protection:


    The tourism industry plays an important role by promoting inter-cultural contacts. Furthermore, Pakistan's rich cultural heritage is a valuable resource in itself. Tourism activities must therefore be developed and managed in close consultation with host communities to guard against exploitation and to ensure that they are protected from unwanted cultural change.




    Development of sustainable tourism cannot be achieved by individuals and organizations working in isolation. To be successful, close co-operation among all the stakeholders is required.
