Green Key

About the program

Green Key  is the leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation in the tourism industry. This prestigious sustainability mark signifies the commitment of companies to comply with the strict criteria set by the International Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in certified establishments. The Green Key sustainable sign guarantees all guests that by choosing a certified tourist establishment, they directly contribute to the protection of the environment. The plants maintain high environmental standards through strict documentation and frequent inspections. Hotels and hostels, smaller accommodation establishments, campsites and holiday parks, congress centers, catering establishments and tourist attractions can obtain the Green Key sustainable label.


Green Key program places great emphasis on informing and involving visitors in sustainable and more environmentally friendly measures implemented in the facilities. Ensures that plant staff are knowledgeable and appropriately trained in environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.


Green Key program is constantly looking for new and sustainable ways of doing business and using technology, with the aim of reducing the consumption of resources and the amount of waste, reducing the impact on the environment and reducing the costs of doing business in the company.

Added value

As guests are becoming increasingly aware and informed about environmental issues, positive environmental practices are becoming more and more important when choosing a suitable establishment to spend their vacation or business trip. The green key symbolizes commitment to the environment and sustainable development, which is extremely attractive to potential guests.


Obtaining Green Key sustainability sign is an additional source of promotion for the facility, as it tells potential guests that it meets strict environmental criteria and actively, efficiently and organizedly improves its sustainable operations.


Green Key program aims to increase the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable ways of doing business and consequently reduce the sharing of resources, raise awareness and change the behavior patterns of all stakeholders in individual tourist establishments and in the tourism industry in general.
