This abstract intends to present QUSS – an integrated Management System for Quality, Sustainability and Safety in theory and practice. QUSS was invented by the NGO Ecocamping and is thus basically applied on camp sites in Europe with focus on Germany. Ecocamping is now considering expanding QUSS on other enterprises such as hotels, restaurants or carriers. The QUSS approach will be explained, applied to a case study and compared to other eco-labels. Finally an outlook is given to the opportunities and barriers regarding the transfer to other tourism sectors.
