Ovation Global DMC is pleased to announce that Ovation Denmark DMC has been awarded Green Tourism Organization certification. Ovation Denmark DMC is the first Danish Destination Management Company to receive Green Tourism Organization certification.

As the first destination management company in Denmark, Ovation Denmark DMC has received the international environmental certification ‘Green Tourism Organization’, which pays tribute to destinations, tourism organizations, and agencies, that make a special effort in relation to sustainability.

The certification of Ovation Denmark DMC is based on an assessment with 140 different criteria, including requirements for the managerial prioritization of environmental considerations, sustainable procurement and the organization’s internal consumption of electricity, water and heat, as well as focusing on how the agency also makes an effort to boost sustainability towards customers.

“Sustainable and environmentally sound choices are in demand when customers choose where to hold their next event. To be awarded a certification that validates the fact that we prioritize sustainability and the environment when composing an event, is very satisfying,” says Per Ankaer, Director of Ovation Denmark DMC.

“We are very happy to welcome another certified member of the GTO program. In relation to the event industry, there are high ambitions for a greater focus on the environment and sustainability in Denmark, because customers are more and more concerned with these topics. With Ovation Denmark DMC as a new member of GTO, we hope that more from the industry will follow,” says Mikal Holt Jensen, Head of Secretariat at Green Tourism Organization.
