Folder Good Practice

Awarded businesses, destinations and initiatives

The transfer of evidenced-based good practice is the accepted way to spend public funds, decide upon investments, and to ensure improved business performance, as well as save on time, costs and duplication. By following good practice examples, tourism businesses, tour operators or destinations can improve their environmental, social, cultural and economic performance with innovative measures and thus contribute to economic competitivity and sustainable development in their regions.

Global "Atlas of Excellence"

The Destinet "Atlas of Excellence" contains more than 500 tourism services, destinations and initiatives world wide, being finalists or winners of one or several sustainable and responsible tourism awards. See e.g. the European VESTAS nomineesEDEN AwardTourism for Tomorrow Award or Quality Coast Award winners.

The list is continuoulsly updated with new award winners, and with examples which have been selected by recognised sustainable tourism experts as good practices. Many of these examples can be seen as best practices for their time, achieving outstanding results. They give examples of how difficult changes can be made, how tradition can be combined with innovation, and how such changes maintain and raise the quality, diversity and competitiveness of a small business or destination. An example can be found in the ECOLNET best practice list.
