The ITB Earth Award Prize
ITB Berlin is one of the best tourism fairs in the world and Portugal was awarded a prestigious title as the best European destination for sustainable tourism! This prize is a result of a partnership between ITB and Green destination, which is a non-profit organisation that works on developing projects of sustainable tourism.
Portugal Good Practices in Sustainability
The Green Foundation and ITB recognised that Portugal is working hard trying to work on tourism environmental impacts, thanks to the good management practices that are being developed in various Portuguese destinations.
Preserving nature, increasing environmental awareness and reducing the impact of tourism on the environment are just some of the measures that the various entities from local authorities and various agents in the tourism market are putting into practice.
This effort resulted in international recognition of destinations such as Minho, Sintra, Azores as “successful cases”.
