Green Key is an international eco-label for tourism facilities, with over 3,000 awarded establishments in 57 countries.
Since 1994, Green Key has been a leading standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry.
The Green Key programme is run in England by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, and internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
Green Key is eligible for hotels, small accommodations, campsites, holiday parks, conference centres, restaurants, and visitor attractions. The scheme provides a well-proven framework for an establishment to work with its environmental management on sustainability issues, including awareness raising. The high environmental standards expected of these establishments are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent on-site audits.
After achieving the prestigious international award, the establishment can use it in its PR and marketing. For guests, a Green Key shows that the establishment is committed to reducing the environmental impact of their stay.
