Tourism is one of the biggest and the most rapid developing industry among other industries. It provides employment to about 260 million people worldwide. This industry of tourism is a very important source of income as it provides employment opportunities. It makes about 10.8% of the world’s GDP. Though it is not possible for tourism to be sustainable completely, as all the surrounding industries have impact on it, but it can work in the direction of obtaining sustainability. There has been a continuous degradation of the resources used in tourism promotion due to damage to the environment. It is due to these factors and other related that the larger management and planning should be concerned with its improvement and effective control. They should give it appropriate approach to ensure the development of tourism is enhanced. The most significant of sustainable tourism falls in the objectives that it has in the conservation and increment of the worth of the regional tradition and ethnicity. Sustainable tourism contains all subdivisions of tourism and has similar role as ecotourism. Regardless of their similarity in the objectives, sustainable tourism is wider and contains very many features and types of tourism. All in one accord should give support and necessary assistance to sustainable tourism. Poor management that has caused fear in the tourism industry can be eliminated through this means. The aid in the obtaining of sustainable tourism should be provided with local communities, and even the clients of tourism. Correct incentives should be provided for the companies and managers restored to decrease negative effects on tourism. When all this steps are followed then we shall have a world and tourism industry called ‘We are green’. Sustainability might be achieved at last. It is our due. It is our responsibility.
