”For us Green Key is a way to communicate, we are focusing on and constantly improving our environmental work and our operational performance. It´s really great that the program includes the aspects of increasing environmental awareness and influencing people’s attitudes. Our work affects both employees and guests and the environmental work doesn´t just stay in the hotel, it also actually walks out.”
Mika Riuttanen, Brand Manager for Radisson Blu Hotels, Sokotel Ltd, - Finland
"We were thrilled to discover that the Green Key is available in Cyprus, as it seemed to be the most friendly in regards to working with our small, family-owned establishment. And, having gained the GSTC recognition, the Green Key helps us to achieve world-wide recognition and support."
Kelley Polis, Director / Manager Angelos Polis Tourist Estate Ltd. - Cyprus
“Considering our significant overall growth, it became even more important to focus on sustainability and to reduce our environmental footprint. The Green Key program helped us to identify areas of concern and has proposed great solutions which led to improved efficiency of the hotel, thereby creating a win-win situation”
Paul Boetekees, Director of Holland House Beach Hotel, - St. Maarten
"My point of view is that establishments enjoy remarkable benefits such as reduced consumption of resources, water and energy, also better management with waste generated by the hotel and having an adequate layout without damaging our environment, as well as a greater occupation, since excellence in environmental management becomes increasingly important when travelers decide where to stay, while generating a more harmonious relationship with the communities and ecosystems that surround the establishments, generating strong links and at the end of the day, better experiences. It also allows customers to participate in environmental activities such as recycling competitions, the hour of the planet, etc. Eco-labeling helps you reduce emissions to the atmosphere, noise and water pollution."
Valentina Lantigua, Environmental Manager of Iberostar Costa Dorada Luz - Dominican Republic
"As a company, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is committed to sustainable development of its business. Its corporate social responsibility program is a vital pillar in this pursuit.

Andrea Kaiser, General Manager, Park Inn by Radisson Sofia
“It is always gratifying to be certified by Green Key another year after our great efforts during the year to meet their environmental standards. We are honored to have become pioneers of hotel green practices on St. Maarten. After three consecutive years of compliance we have strived to be a responsible and sustainable business and encourage other properties to join these eco-friendly practices.”
Arnaldo Phelipa, Assistant General Manager, Princess Heights Boutique Condo Hotel, - St. Maarten
"The Princess Beach Hotel is very proud to be a part of the ecolabel Green Key community as looking after our planet is of utmost importance to us. Our motivation is to “Think globally, act locally.”
Magdalena Kritikou, Sales Executive, Sunnyseeker Hotels - Cyprus
“We are already working with a lot of the issues Green Key touches upon. We care about sustainability and would like to make our work more visible. Green Key is a good tool in our undertakings. The programme’s strength is that the important parts are documented and followed-up on, but Green Key also gives us tips on what we can improve so that our own sustainability efforts are constantly up to date."
Nora Rosenström, Environmental Manager at the restaurant Smakbyn - Åland Islands
"Two of the three hotels we own are Green key certified. We clearly notice that customers are more attentive in environmental actions (waste separation, towels washing on demand) in the two certified hotels."
M. de Montferrand, Associate Director, Hôtel Chateaubriand (Nantes) - France
“The criteria of the Green Key certificate goes in-line with Marriott International’s corporate social responsibility strategies and “Go Green” Initiative. It sets us apart in the market place as it is parallel to lots of our company’s policies and gives ways for partnerships that are aware and supportive of such CSRs. By following the Green Key certificate criteria, our hotel was able to reduce costs and consumption in heat, electricity, light and water in addition to raising awareness among associates about conserving the environment and how it reflects on our community”.
Mr. Saleh Farajat, Amman Marriott Hotel - Jordan
"Green Key meets our requirements of being an established and internationally viable certification combined with having an active local organization that support our hotels in their continuous work to take environmental and social responsibility."
