Ovation Denmark DMC 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 receives the international environmental certification ‘Green Tourism Organization’, which pays tribute to destinations, tourism organizations and agencies, who make a special effort in relation to sustainability.

“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.

The certification of Ovation Denmark DMC is based on an assessment based on 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.

“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.
