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.

Managed by the IDC, financial assistance under the GTIP is provided in the form of a grant of up to R 1 million to qualifying small and micro tourism enterprises.



• The programme will cover 90% of the cost for a new energy 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 will 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
