OUR METHODOLOGY

The Green Destinations methodology is structured by the sustainability management guidelines of our own Standard, recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.

METHODOLOGY & STRUCTURE

Our certification programs are structured by the sustainability management guidelines of our Green Destinations Standard. Progress is monitored through indicators, which makes the program concrete and measurable. You can easily implement our guidelines and indicators in your management system.
The Standard consists of guidelines covering six main themes:

Destination Management

Nature & Scenery

Environment & Climate

Culture & Tradition

Social Well-being

Business & Hospitality

ASSESSMENT

Our certifications level results are based upon assessments by independent auditors and will provide you with an agenda for improvement. The assessment cycle is two years; Awards and Certificates are presented at our annual Global Green Destinations Days (GGDD) or at international trade shows (ITB Berlin, FITUR Madrid). In addition, national or local events may be organised by our country representatives.
