Who can apply for a Green Key Award?


The positive effects of responsible tourism are a major benefit for the environment. All hotels can take small steps to reduce their environmental impact. Green Key awarded hotels are committed to creating positive environmental change.

Hotel Assessment Criteria
Small accommodation (guesthouses, B&Bs, small hotels)

Following demand on an international scale, Green Key has recently developed an opportunity for smaller accommodation (with fewer than 15 bedrooms) to have an impact on global environmental sustainability. If you are a small guest house, an eco-lodge or a bed and breakfast then this is your opportunity to add your contribution to responsible tourism.
