The 2010 Guardian Green Travel List is published in association with greentraveller.co.uk and and Forum for the Future. The Chair of Judges is Dr Graham Miller, Director of International Studies at the University of Surrey.

The entire list was published in the Guardian's travel supplement on Saturday 20 February 2010.

The aim of the Green Travel List is to help you find a greener holiday. It does not single out individual 'winners’, instead the idea is to provide a comprehensive list of a wide range of companies that have introduced significant changes to their business, the products they offer and the way they perform. These companies have convinced us that sustainability is at the heart of their business. (Above: Living off the land in Ibiza; photo: Can Marti)
