What is the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism?
It is a comprehensive national system for promoting the development of sustainable tourism in Slovenia on all pillars of sustainable development, environmental, social, and economic. The scheme, which is owned by the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB), is aimed at destinations (usually one or, exceptionally, several municipalities are presented together as a destination), as well as tourist accommodation providers, parks, tourist agencies, tourist attractions, restaurants, and beaches.
