What is Sustainable Travel Finland (STF)?
The Sustainable Travel Finland (STF) program offers vacation destinations a toolkit for the development of sustainable tourism, which makes it easier to take ecologically sustainable measures. Destinations that have gone through the program and met the criteria will be awarded the Sustainable Travel Finland label.
Vacation destinations that have received the STF label commit to the principles of sustainable tourism. The program maps the current state and participates in the Sustainable Travel Finland training. After this, a sustainable tourism development plan is drawn up, which takes into account all the functions of the resort that will be affected by the STF mark. The principles and measures of sustainable tourism are also visibly communicated. In addition, destinations that have received the STF mark undertake to update their knowledge of sustainable tourism at regular intervals and to make a self-assessment and development plan. The STF badge is renewed regularly.
