About Sustainable Destinations Top 100

The Sustainable Top 100 competition is organised by 12 organisations with the general aim to showcase success stories and good practices of both emerging and established destinations, and to exchange good practices to make all destinations more sustainable, and better for local communities and travellers.

Destinations can be nominated by any interested party and nominators have to provide extensive information about the extent the destination complies with the core criteria of the Green Destinations Standard.
