Sustainability and green tourism to increase value

Climate change has become a reality as phenomena such as droughts, rising sea levels and heat waves affect guests' behavior and their choice of destinations on a daily basis. Only destinations that will actively adapt to them will retain their authenticity and attractiveness, so sustainable management and care for the natural environment are the only way forward. Slovenia has embarked on this path many years ago, and green DNA can also be redeemed for raising the value and improving the reputation of both the Slovenian brand and the destination brands within it.
