Denmark’s position as a forward-thinking destination with regard to sustainability was underlined today. No less than six Danish meeting cities made it to the top 30 in the Global Destination Sustainability Index, which was revealed today at the 61st ICCA Congress in Krakow. Denmark’s leading position is backed by the first national plan on how Denmark will accelerate the sustainable transition in the meetings industry and beyond in the years to come.
Since 2015 Danish meeting destinations have worked closely together with the national development association for business events, MeetDenmark, to strengthen Denmark’s position as a preferred destination for congresses, meetings and events through knowledge sharing, and joint development projects.
GDSI as an active development and benchmarking tool
Based on 70 different criteria – and aligned with the 2030 agenda and UN One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme GDSI is the most extensive sustainability index for destinations, which is why MeetDenmark is actively using GDSI as a development and benchmarking tool when working with selected initiatives in MeetDenmark’s sustainability plan.
