Green Key is a voluntary eco-label for tourism facilities that promotes sustainable tourism and aims to contribute to the prevention of climate change by awarding and advocating facilities with positive environmental initiatives.
Green Key began in Denmark in 1994 and was adopted by FEE in 2002 to become its fifth international Programme. It has since spread to more than 40 countries and continues to grow in numbers and spread across the world.
Green Key is an eco-label awarded to over 2100 establishments in 41 countries worldwide.
Green Key aims to:
- raise the awareness of leisure establishment staff and clients,
- increase the use of sustainable methods of operation and technology,
- run ecologically sound and responsible businesses, and thereby
- reduce resource, energy usage
Green Key is a non-governmental, non-profit, independent Programme. It is recognised and supported by the World Tourism Organization and UNEP. Green Key is presently the largest global eco-label for accommodation and has a national administration centre in each participating country.
