About Green Key

Green Key Picture 102

Green Key® is an internationally available eco-label awarded to leisure organisations, such as hotels, youth hostels, conference and holiday centres, campsites and leisure facilities. Green Key’s goal is to become the tourism industry's strongest label based on numbers and demand. In Denmark, Green Key has been awarded to around 180 businesses, while there are some 2,100 Green Key businesses in 40 countries worldwide.

To obtain a Green Key label the business has to meet a number of environmental requirements. These requirements are contained in a number of criteria. In addition to environmental demands such as limiting the production of waste and decreasing the use of water and electricity, the criteria also include demands on policy, action plans, education and communication.
