About the competition

The Green Destinations Top 100 destinations are selected based on the annual Top 100 list, featuring the 100 destinations with the best Good Practice Stories.

These destinations are working hard and making progress towards a more sustainable and responsible tourism industry while creating a more attractive experience for local communities and travellers. Their innovative and effective stories are shared with others to be used as inspiring examples. Since 2014, every year (with the exception of 2015), Green Destinations is proud to reward 100 destinations for their efforts and put them in the spotlight on a global scale.

Applications to the Top 100 competition can be submitted by any person, organisation or company on behalf of the destination.

The procedure and evaluation of the Top 100 competition are supervised and supported by a partnership of organisations, led by Green Destinations.
