About Green Key

Green Key® is an international eco-label awarded to leisure organisations such as hotels, hostels and conference 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 130 businesses, while there are some 2,900 Green Key businesses in 57 countries worldwide.

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