The world's top 10 countries for sustainable tourism, from Sweden to Slovenia

The Covid-19 pandemic crippled tourism, but the travel industry is restarting with a sustainable reboot, and Sweden is leading the way

The global pandemic has halted tourism as borders across the world have closed, flights are grounded and demand for international travel has plummeted.

While devastating for the industry in terms of economics, this enforced pause has served to highlight some of the problems with the global model of mass tourism: overcrowded cities, pollution from air travel and environmental degradation, to name a few.

Now, as nations slowly start to reopen, there are calls for a sustainable reboot, with the United Nations World Tourism Organisation asking for a "responsible recovery of the tourism sector".

Such a sustainable restart will be easier for some countries than for others. A new report by Euromonitor International details the nations leading the way for sustainable tourism, and those lagging far behind.

These are the top 10 countries for sustainable tourism

1. Sweden

2. Finland

3. Austria

4. Estonia

5. Norway

6. Slovakia

7. Iceland

8. Latvia

9. France

10. Slovenia

The Sustainable Travel Index by market research company Euromonitor International was designed to help destinations shift to more sustainable and purpose-driven tourism models.

It ranks the top 99 sustainable destinations in the world, having analysed them for seven different factors, including environmental, social and economic sustainability, country risk, sustainable tourism demand, transport and lodgings.

The top 20 leading countries are all in Europe. Sweden was ranked first, followed by Finland and Austria. Just outside the top 20 are New Zealand, Bolivia and Canada, where progress is being made.

"Scandinavia is exemplary in its engagement and awareness of sustainability, where 65 per cent of travel businesses already have implemented a sustainability strategy," stated Euromonitor’s Voice of the Industry: Sustainability Survey in July 2020.

The EU is also driving a strong sustainability agenda through its European Green Deal.

Elsewhere, the UK ranks in 40th position, Jordan is 43rd and the UAE is ranked 53rd, although the Emirates is noted for its improvement. Oman slips in a few paces behind at number 57 and Bahrain is placed at number 70, then Saudi Arabia at number 72.

The list runs to number 99 – a slot that is held by Pakistan.

Why is Sweden the world's most sustainable tourism destination? 

Sweden tops the Sustainable Travel Index in 2020 and proves sustainability can enhance the travel experience. The birthplace of the flygskam (flight shaming) movement and home to climate strike activist, Greta Thunberg, the country is an example for other destinations looking to recover sustainably.

The Scandinavian country also promotes rural and regional tourism in core cities, offers alternative forms of travel besides air and has award-winning Nordic sustainable lodgings.

Sweden is also very involved in green initiatives such as preserving the Arctic ice and permafrost to help stop climate change, and aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2045.

Saudi Arabia ranks first for 'risk', UAE noted for improvement

While Saudi Arabia only ranked in 72nd place in the list of the world's most sustainable tourism destinations, it ranked first in the "Risk" category, meaning its risk mitigation strategies are strong in various areas.

Within this, destinations are ranked depending on how susceptible they are "to external risks such as geopolitics, natural disasters, man-made catastrophes and diseases". The risk pillar has three main areas: safety, healthcare and endangered cultural sites and species.

As the report states: "Safety and healthcare go hand in hand for creating a resilient tourism model, and countries must be able to meet the needs of their residents."

The kingdom was particularly commended for its strong record in nature and heritage conservation.

The UAE was also noted for improving its risk ranking. It was the sixth most improved country in 2020.

Tightening the screw on rogue recruiters

The UAE overhauled the procedure to recruit housemaids and domestic workers with a law in 2017 to protect low-income labour from being exploited.

 Only recruitment companies authorised by the government are permitted as part of Tadbeer, a network of labour ministry-regulated centres.

A contract must be drawn up for domestic workers, the wages and job offer clearly stating the nature of work.

The contract stating the wages, work entailed and accommodation must be sent to the employee in their home country before they depart for the UAE.

The contract will be signed by the employer and employee when the domestic worker arrives in the UAE.

Only recruitment agencies registered with the ministry can undertake recruitment and employment applications for domestic workers.

Penalties for illegal recruitment in the UAE include fines of up to Dh100,000 and imprisonment

But agents not authorised by the government sidestep the law by illegally getting women into the country on visit visas.

Another way to earn air miles

In addition to the Emirates and Etihad programmes, there is the Air Miles Middle East card, which offers members the ability to choose any airline, has no black-out dates and no restrictions on seat availability. Air Miles is linked up to HSBC credit cards and can also be earned through retail partners such as Spinneys, Sharaf DG and The Toy Store.

An Emirates Dubai-London round-trip ticket costs 180,000 miles on the Air Miles website. But customers earn these ‘miles’ at a much faster rate than airline miles. Adidas offers two air miles per Dh1 spent. Air Miles has partnerships with websites as well, so booking.com and agoda.com offer three miles per Dh1 spent.

“If you use your HSBC credit card when shopping at our partners, you are able to earn Air Miles twice which will mean you can get that flight reward faster and for less spend,” says Paul Lacey, the managing director for Europe, Middle East and India for Aimia, which owns and operates Air Miles Middle East.
