OTTAWA — Green Key Global’s Green Key Eco-Rating Program has received the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s (GSTC) recognized status.
The status is achieved through a review by GSTC technical experts and the GSTC accreditation panel. “The achievement of GSTC-Recognized status for the Green Key Eco-Rating Program is an exciting new chapter in our brand’s history,” says Tony Pollard, managing director of Green Key Global. “For more than twenty years we have worked to educate and support the global lodging industry on its sustainability path and this accolade further highlights the integrity the Green Key program brings to this mission.”
The Green Key Eco-Rating Program is designed to recognize lodging facilities that want to improve their environmental and fiscal performance. In support if these efforts members are provided with education and guidance on opportunities to reduce utility consumption, waste, emissions and operating costs.
