Green Tourism Incentive Programme


The Green Tourism Incentive Programme (GTIP) is an initiative of the 
National Department of Tourism with a key objective of encouraging
privately-owned tourism enterprises to move towards cleaner and
renewable energy sources and the efficient utilization of water.

Managed by the IDC, financial assistance under the GTIP is provided in the form of a grant of up to R1 million to qualifying small and micro tourism enterprises.


  • The programme covers 90% of the cost for a new resource efficiency audit as well as the full cost for reviewing an existing audit
  • The programme offers grant funding on a sliding scale from 30% to 90 % - capped at R1 million
  • The balance is to be covered by the applicant (either through own resources or from other funding institutions including the IDC and sefa, 
    a wholly-owned subsidiary of the IDC)
  • Grant funding will be paid directly to service providers
