South Sardinia is the first sustainable Mediterranean destination

Visit Sud Sardegna, the Destination Management Organisation (DMO) constituted in February this year, is formed by the municipalities of Cagliari, Domus de Maria, Muravera, Pula and Villasimius, and has been recognized as the first sustainable destination in the Mediterranean

The area south of Sardinia participated in the international project of recognition of a sustainable destination promoted by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), the non-profit agency that deals with sustainable tourism worldwide within the context of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

Visit South Sardinia completed the Early Adopters Program of the GSTC which established the sustainability of a destination based on scientific criteria (40 criteria and 81 indicators) recognized on a global levell. 

The South Sardinia program is overseen by the GSTC’s Destination Working Group and managed by NGO partner Sustainable Travel International (STI). The Destination Criteria complement and complete the existing GSTC criteria for Hotels and Tour Operators, which is the worldwide sustainability standard for tourism businesses.

“The GSTC destination criteria are becoming a cornerstone for sustainability guidance worldwide, as guiding actions that protect and conserve unique natural and cultural features, such as those found in South Sardinia” noted Dr. Kelly Bricker, Chair of the GSTC. “As an early adopter, South Sardinia is demonstrating global leadership and commitment to sustainability,” Bricker added.
