Bled has a strong vision in adopting sustainable practices and has been committed to sustainable tourism for many years. We are proud to share that the destination earned the first ever certificate Zero Waste Certified City awarded by Mission Zero Academy. Third-party experts evaluated the implementation and execution of sustainable and circular solutions and awarded Bled with the certificate Zero Waste Certified City. Mission Zero Academy (MiZA), powered by Zero Waste Europe, aims at accelerating the European cities’ zero waste transition and circular economy implementation at the local level.
Next to the newly awarded certificate, Bled is also a proud holder of gold designation through the Slovenia Green scheme, a member of Alpine Pearls Group promoting sustainable mobility. In 2019 the destination Bled was recognised as second in Europe by non-governmental project Destinations Green in 2019 for its sustainable development.
