Global Report on Shopping Tourism | Community of UNWTO Affiliate Members | Ecoinnova | Scoop.it
This report explores the importance of shopping tourism as a driver of economic development, its emergence as a main motivation for travel, its increasing significance as part of the overall tourism offer and the keys for its success, both from the destination’s perspective as from the needs from the shopping tourist. The publication includes experiences and success stories by Affiliate Members from around the world, who we deeply thank for their contributions to the study.

Eco-innovation

Eco-innovation is the development of products and processes that contribute to sustainable development, applying the commercial application of knowledge to elicit direct or indirect ecological improvements. This includes a range of related ideas, from environmentally friendly technological advances to socially acceptable innovative paths towards sustainability.

The idea of eco-innovation is fairly recent. One of the first appearances of the concept of eco-innovation in the literature is in the book by Claude Fussler and Peter James.[1] In a subsequent article, Peter James defines eco-innovation as "new products and processes which provide customer and business value but significantly decrease environmental impacts".[2]

Eco-innovation is closely linked to a variety of related concepts. It is often used interchangeably with "environmental innovation", and is also often linked with environmental technology, eco-efficiency, eco-design, environmental design, sustainable design, or sustainable innovation. While the term "environmental innovation" is used in similar contexts to "eco-innovation", the other terms are mostly used when referring to product or process design, and therefore focus more on the technological aspects of eco-innovation rather than the societal or political aspects.
