All certificates confirm the commitment to sustainable development.

On the Days of Slovenian Tourism in October, the Slovenian Tourist Board awarded first destination and accommodation providers with the Slovenia Green certificates.

Ljubljana won the Green Destination certificate and thus strengthened the status and mission of the European Green Capital 2016.

Acting director of the Slovenian Tourist Board Maja Pak is satisfied with the response of Slovenian tourist destinations to join the Green Scheme: "16 pilot destinations and 6 accommodation providers demonstrate that tourism industry follows the strategic orientations. Our great desire and commitment is to include and certify at least 10 new destinations and providers per year. With it, we will follow the vision and objectives of continuing growth of the Slovenian tourism competitiveness and reinforce the image of Slovenia as a green, active and healthy destination."
