The Cyprus Tourism Organisation, being the responsible body for promoting Cyprus, has been awarded the Silver Award as the ‘Best Destination for Responsible Tourism’ which was announced at the World Responsible Tourism Awards ceremony, held last November, at the World Travel Market in London.

The World Responsible Tourism Awards seek to recognise, reward, inspire and challenge parties involved in sustainable tourism. The judging is undertaken by a group of renowned experts, with a rigorous judging process, based on evidence, replicability, innovation, influence, sustainability and commitment.

This year there was an exceptionally high number of applicants exceeding 500 in 13 categories, which makes Cyprus’ achievement particularly rewarding.
