Development of national schemes for sustainable tourism

We are the authors of the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism – a national scheme for the development of sustainable tourism in destinations and tourism businesses, which we are developing together with the owner and manager of the scheme, the Slovenian Tourist Board. As accredited partners, we are regularly evaluating and upgrading the scheme, carrying out educational workshops, training sustainability coordinators and providing assistance with sustainability certification. As proud holders of the Green Destinations assessment license we audit destinations according to this GSTC-recognized standard.

In accordance with our vast experiences in the field, we position ourselves as experts on the development of national schemes for sustainable tourism. We are thrilled to share the story of Slovenia Green with other destinations, while taking into account their local characteristics and needs. It is our pleasure to show other destination managers how to successfully build a national or regional sustainable tourism development scheme using globally recognized standards and certification programs.

Let’s make the future of the tourism industry brighter and greener together!
