The GoodPlace Sustainable Tourism Factory story began in 2012. At that time, the GoodPlace founders group already had many years of experience in Slovenia as well as internationally in various fields: in sustainable tourism development, in area of social responsibility, in promotion, education, research, congress industry, tourism management, tourism product design and innovative ideas and technological solutions.
Since the beginning, the Institute´s primary purpose was to implement sustainable principles in the Slovenian, European, and global tourism sectors. This is achieved through cooperation with various governmental and non-governmental organizations, destinations, and other stakeholders in tourism.
To date, GoodPlace is one of the leading Green Destinations partners in the region, a Travelife certified representative for hotels and travel agencies, and has worked on over 60 projects with partners from Slovenia and abroad.
Together with the Slovenian tourist board, we have developed the multiple award-winning Slovenia Green certification scheme. We are accredited partners for the implementation and coordination of Slovenia Green consortium, with whom we inform destinations, accommodation providers, and travel agencies about sustainable tourism.
In 2016, GoodPlace supported the founding of Visit GoodPlace travel agency with green products in offer. In 2019 we set up GoodPlace Portugal in the Azores and became partners of the single-use plastic removal initiative in all NoMorePlastics sectors.
