Program Overview

The Green Tourism Incentive Programme (GTIP) is a resource efficiency incentive programme of the Department of Tourism whose objective is to encourage and support private sector tourism enterprises to adopt responsible tourism practices by moving towards the sustainable management of water and energy resources whilst adhering to responsible tourism practices.

Through grant funding, the GTIP assists private-sector tourism enterprises in reducing the cost of investing in energy and water-efficient solutions, while increasing their competitiveness, profitability and operational sustainability in the long term.

The programme is managed by the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) on behalf of the Department of Tourism and all applications and approvals are managed by the IDC.  The GTIP broadly offers the following benefits to qualifying tourism enterprises:

  • the full cost for a new resource efficiency audit or the full cost of reviewing an existing resource efficiency audit;
  • grant funding to qualifying small and micro enterprises on a sliding scale from 50% to 90% of the total cost of implementing resource efficiency interventions, which is capped at R 1 million; and
  • qualifying enterprises may implement projects in phases in order to better manage their cash flow over a two-year project implementation period.
