Green Key Global

Green Key Global is a leading, international, GSTC recognized, environmental certification body whose suite of industry standard programs and resources has been designed specifically for the lodging and meetings industries. Our affordable programs, including the Green Key Eco-Rating and the Green Key Meetings Programs, help members leverage organizational CSR activities to support their property’s sustainable initiatives, improve overall fiscal performance and community relations. With member properties in over 20 countries and a notable mix of branded and independent members, Green Key Global truly is the lodging industry’s certification program of choice.

For 19 years our flagship program, the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, has been evaluating and certifying properties in North America and beyond on the scope of their sustainable initiatives. The Green Key Meetings Program, launched in 2011 caters to the needs of the meetings and events industry. The Green Key Global suite of programs allows participants to benefit on several fronts – cost savings, increased bookings from environmentally conscious consumers and meeting planners and responsible corporate citizenry. Green Key Global strives to simultaneously educate members on the value these activities have on a broader environmental, social and economic level. In support of this, Green Key conducts on-site verification audits to validate member ratings and also provides a variety of marketing materials to assist members in the promotion of their efforts. The Green Key Programs were designed specifically for the lodging industry by the Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) and are delivered under the banner of Green Key Global.
