The first winner of the Slovenia Green quality label was Ljubljana, European Green Capital 2016. Up until now, 12 destinations and 10 operators have been awarded the label, and 16 destinations are in the assessment process. The gala award ceremony for new holders of the green quality label will take place on 27 September within the Global Green Destinations Day international event, when one hundred of the most sustainable destinations and operators in the world will also be revealed and Slovenia’s sustainability rating will be given. Slovenia is the first country in the world to be comprehensively rated according to international sustainability criteria.


Slovenia is a country with green character. Forests cover 58.4% of its area, making it the third most forested country in Europe, and 36% of its area is within the Natura 2000 network. One fifth of its coast is protected, and it is one of the richest European countries with regard to the amount of river water per capita.

 

Green strategy of Slovenian tourism


By adopting the Green Strategy of Slovenian tourism 2012–2016, Slovenia committed to the sustainable development of tourism and the respect of its green character. Therefore, the Slovenian Tourist Board developed the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism in 2015, a special programme for introducing sustainable models in tourism and raising awareness concerning careful environmental management.  Within the Green Scheme, it developed the Slovenia Green quality label based on the Green Destinations Standard, the global standard for assessing the sustainable operations of tourist destinations, and the ETIS indicator system.

 

Since 2015, 12 destinations and 10 operators have joined the Green Scheme. The first destination to be given the Slovenia Green Destination label was Ljubljana, while other holders of the quality label include Kamnik, Idrija, Rogla-Zreče, Radlje ob Dravi, Cerkno, Laško, Žalec, Celje, Velenje, Nova Gorica, and Maribor. The holders of the Slovenia Green Accommodation label are the Thermana Park Hotel in Laško, the Koren Camp in Kobarid, the Terme Snovik Spa, the Urška Tourist Farm, Ortenia – Apartments in Nature, the Trnulja Estate, the Park Hotel in Ljubljana, the Celica Hostel, Pr\\\' Gavedarjo Design Rooms, and the Jožef Hotel in Idrija. The assessment process now includes 16 destinations.
