At the occasion of World Tourism Day and Global Green Destinations Day, 27-28 September 2016, the Sustainable Destinations Top 100 is launched for the second time to celebrate the efforts of tourism destinations for responsible and sustainable tourism. The list is the result of open calls in newswires and the social media. Everybody could nominate destinations through a form that was available online. Nominators had to provide extensive information on the destination and on its efforts for sustainability. Information had to be provided about the extent the destination complies with the 15 core criteria of the Green Destinations Standard (table). Over 150 nominations were received. All nominations were evaluated by experts of the Green Destinations Top 100 Team and by members of the special Top 100 Selection Panel, that included sixty tourism sustainability experts.
