Sustainable Top100 announced and call for entries to massive ITB event

Sustainable Destinations Top100 announced for fourth year plus entry call for Best of the Best at ITB - extended to 14 January - just 10 days left!

For the fourth year the Sustainable Destinations Top 100 has been unveiled. This list celebrates the efforts of tourism destinations for responsible and sustainable tourism.

Nominators had to provide extensive information on their destination and its efforts to make itself and its stakeholders more sustainable for the benefit of visitors, local communities and the world. Candidate destinations had to clarify what they have been doing to comply with the 100 globally recognized criteria of the Green Destinations Standard. Nominations were evaluated by the Sustainable Top 100 Team and by members of the Top 100 International Committee and country experts.

The Top 100 initiative aims to recognise tourism destinations that have worked hard to make a difference and take sustainability seriously. Nevertheless, no destination is fully sustainable. In all selected destinations important issues remain to be solved.
