San Carlos City was among the 60 Early Bird destinations selected in Global Sustainability Competition which received more than 120 nominations from 40 countries worldwide before July 2018.
In its press release, Green Destinations stated that nominees were evaluated by the Sustainable Top 100 Team and by members of the Top 100 International Committee which includes over 60 tourism sustainability experts.
It further cited that the Top 100 initiative aims at recognizing tourism destinations that have worked hard to make a difference and take sustainability seriously.
Earlier, Tourism Officer Maisog said San Carlos City was considered among the alternative destinations because of its sustainable environmental practices that urged the community to participate especially in keeping up the solid waste management program of the city.
Aside from its best environmental practices, San Carlos City is also known for its lovely sights including the nature inspired people’s park, mountain resorts and the pristine beaches and diving spots of Sipaway Island among others.
On the other hand, the City of Nijmegen in The Netherlands has also been elected European Green Capital 2018 by the European Commission.
