Slovenia Green Destination
The destination Cerkno is steadily following the path of sustainable development, as evidenced by the fact that it has been included in the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism and has been awarded the Slovenia Green Destination Label.
As a member we committed to sustainable action in various areas. Over the last years, a number of steps have been taken towards greener operations. We place great emphasis on raising awareness among different stakeholders, both those working in the tourism sector and the local community.
We are also active members of the Slovenia Green Consortium, which brings together various participants working in the field of sustainable development.
What is the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism?
The Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism is a tool developed at the national level and a certification programme that carries out the following tasks under the SLOVENIA GREEN umbrella brand:
- brings together all efforts directed towards the sustainable development of tourism in Slovenia,
- offers tools to destinations and service providers that enable them to evaluate and improve their sustainability endeavours,
- promotes these green endeavours through the SLOVENIA GREEN brand.
The scheme’s key strategic objective is to introduce sustainable models to Slovenian tourism, to both tourism service providers and destinations. All the objectives of the strategic guidelines are in line with sustainable development and demonstrate concern for the economic, social, cultural and natural environment.
