Vail Certified as the First Sustainable Mountain Resort Destination in the World
At long last, Vail has been officially certified as a sustainable mountain resort destination. As such, Vail is the first destination in the world to be certified to the Mountain IDEAL sustainable destination standard. Additionally, Vail’s adherence to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s (GSTC) destination criteria makes it the first Certified Sustainable Destination in the United States certified by a GSTC-Accredited certifying body, Green Destinations. The conditional Green Destinations certification is the result of a multi-year partnership between the Town of Vail, Walking Mountains Science Center, Sustainable Travel International, Vail Resorts, U.S. Forest Service and others. It marks the culmination of 56 years of leadership by the Vail community in progressive environmental conservation policies and programs.
