EC3 Global, headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland, is an international tourism and environmental management and advisory group which was developed by the Sustainable Tourism CRC, the world’s largest dedicated research centre specialising in sustainable tourism and research. EC3 Global also owns and manages the EarthCheck benchmarking and certification program which currently operates in over 70 countries.

In June 2010, the Sustainable Tourism CRC (STCRC), completed its formal research agreement with the Australian Commonwealth Government. As one of Australia's most successful research centres, it evolved into three International legacy projects. These include Sustainable Tourism Online, the not-for-profit EarthCheck Research Institute (ERI) and the APEC International Centre for Sustainable Tourism. All of these centres for excellence are supported by EC3 Global / EarthCheck. [1]

EarthCheck Research Institute

The EarthCheck Research Institute's (ERI) goal is to be a leading international centre for scientific excellence in sustainable tourism. The institute's focus is on scientific research, education and capacity building to solve real-world challenges.

The role of the Institute is to:

1) Provide advice on the key sustainability and climate change issues now facing the world's travel and tourism industry.

2) Provide advice and assistance to industry on the changing needs of new mandated reporting standards for climate change and sustainability.

3) Provide information and ideas on new research or approaches that need to be addressed by EC3 and industry to meet improved triple bottom line reporting.

4) Provide open, objective and transparent scientific and technical input.

5) Recommend which research teams from across the world are best equipped to complete the research work.

EC3 Global is working with industry partners, international governments and postdoctoral fellows, staff and students working in and across University research centres around the globe. These researchers work with EC3 Global and its industry partners to develop products and solutions that address both climate change and sustainability, ensuring the legacy of the STCRC is both continued and built upon.
