About Sustainable Destination
Sustainable Destination is the Nordic region’s only national labelling scheme for travel destinations. It is a tool for sustainable development of businesses and destinations when it comes to the environment, the local community, the cultural heritage, and the economy.
The label does not mean that the destinations are 100 per cent sustainable yet, but in a long-term process. They are evaluated every three years. Read more about sustainable travel in Norway.
