The Competa town hall is working with Green Destinations – a globally operating NGO based in The Netherlands with the mission to support and recognise sustainability at destination levels. There are criteria for destinations: municipalities, regions, countries, protected areas, and in some cases private estates/conservancies.
There is a low-barrier Award and Certification program which allows destinations to adopt a sustainability management approach by submitting a list of criteria and supporting documentation; improve step by step based on independent verification and recommendations on a bi-yearly basis. The ‘Green Destinations Award’ is usually achievable for European destinations with adequate implementation of EU and National environmental policies and regulations and good management of its natural and cultural resources. Award winners earn a Certificate valid for 2 years and connected license to use the GD Logo on public communication and hoist the GD flag in its territory, and become promoted via the Green Destinations Collection.
