The Serra de Tramuntana World Heritage Consortium is the public entity, attached to the Consell Insular de Mallorca, whose main objective is to promote policies of conservation and improvement of the elements and values that have enabled the Serra de Tramuntana to be declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
The Consortium exercises its functions and powers in the properties and in the territorial area defined and mapped in the declaration.
The Government of the Balearic Islands and the Consell de Mallorca constituted the Consortium, by means of a collaboration agreement, on 9 February 2011. Since then, the 20 municipalities of the Serra de Tramuntana and non-profit organisations that pursue general interest objectives that coincide with those of the Serra de Tramuntana's declaration as World Heritage have joined the Consortium.
The Consortium is governed by the Statutes published in the BOIB of 30 May 2019, which describe its main functions, among which the following stand out:
- To promote the involvement of private initiative in the conservation of the cultural landscape.
- Promote cultural activities and projects to disseminate the values of the Sierra
- Promoting innovation and research
- To manage grants and subsidies
