Economic development, initially understood and seen as a growth, receives in the 21st century a human side component, decreasing quantitative in favor of qualitative. The tourism industry has experienced a continuous growth, based on natural resources, with adverse effects, and now it's time for efforts to move toward finding a balance between tourism and the environment. Thus emerged the concept of sustainable tourism and, in a broader sense, sustainable development of tourism. This paper proposes a theoretical crossing in the literature, following growth, development and sustainability wire against the background of the relationship between tourism and environment, offering two solutions - tourism niche orientation and social responsibility
