CEE is a major non-profit organisation established in 1984 as a “centre of excellence in environmental education” and recognised by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.

CEE officially launched the Green Key programme in India on 5 June 2018 in a press conference with the participation of the Municipal Commissioner, Mr Mukesh Kumar.

Kartikeya V. Sharabhai, Director of CEE, says: “On 5 June 2018, World Environment Day, we launched the Green Key Programme in India. The hospitality industry and tourism authorities are today increasingly conscious of their environmental footprint and the Green Key Programme gives them a methodology to reach international standards. We will be implementing the Programme across India through our central office in Ahmedabad and our various regional/project offices across the country. With CEE having a lot of experience in initiatives related to education for sustainable development and various eco-tourism programmes, we are looking forward to engaging Green Key to further support tourism establishments in India with their sustainability efforts."

Finn Bolding Thomsen, International Green Key Director says: “With major countries in Asia increasing their focus on tourism and sustainable development, it is a priority for Green Key to enlarge our presence in the region. We are therefore delighted that CEE has decided to launch the programme in India through its extensive network, making Green Key easily offered to any hotel and tourism establishment in India.”
