Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Green Key Global announced its Fall promotion, offering a discount for new registrations prior to December 15th, 2012. Green hotels that register for the Green Meeting program using the promo code GKMFALL12 will receive a $25 credit on their first year of membership.
“We developed the Green Key Meetings Certification in partnership with Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation Canada because we know that meeting planners are increasingly looking for comprehensive and transparent information on which hotels are practicing exceptional environmental stewardship, so that they can then make the right recommendations for their clients,” said Tony Pollard, Managing Director, Green Key Global. “Our mission is to assess the internal day-to-day physical operations of a lodging meeting’s facility, while also identifying opportunities for further improvements and ensuring cost-effective solutions.”
The Green Key Meetings Program is a comprehensive assessment tool for hotel and resort properties that host meetings of any size. The assessment has been designed as a means to providing Travel, Meeting and Conference Planners with the hotel’s level of commitment to environmental issues.
“This sustainable tourism program evaluates a hotel’s meeting and convention operations on a scale of one to five, with five being the highest ranking,” said Mr. Pollard. “Results are based on a thorough evaluation of the hotel’s sustainability efforts. Upon completion of the Green Key Meetings assessment, the property is awarded a ranking and is listed on http://www.greenkeymeetings.com, a valuable resource for environmentally conscious event planners.”
