Green Key Eco-Rating

Certification Your
Guests Will Trust

For over 20 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 Eco-Rating Program is recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The graduated rating system is designed to recognize hotels, motels, and resorts that are committed to improving their environmental and fiscal performance.


In support of their efforts towards becoming a cutting-edge green lodging property, members are provided with a comprehensive guide on how to “unlock” opportunities for reductions in utility consumption, waste, emissions, and operating costs. Additional recommendations are also outlined for employee training, staff and customer engagement, supply chain management, community involvement and more.


The environment is top‑of‑mind for consumers. Market your competitive edge and showcase a Green Key Eco‑Rating. The Green Key Global hotel and meeting directory and industry partner websites offer increased visibility.
