Recent trends show an emergence of sustainable meetings, functions, and events. Today, there is an increasing demand for venues to demonstrate their commitment to high-performing, yet environmentally conscious operations.
The Green Key Meetings Program is a comprehensive assessment tool for lodging and event facilities that host meetings of any size. This program is consistent with ASTM/APEX green meeting standards, which focus on sustainability and environmental performance at the facility level.
Developed in collaboration with Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the Green Key Meetings program is a powerful tool for travel, meeting and conference planners to implement sustainable practices and policies.
The environment is top-of-mind for consumers. A 2017 study by the International Trade Council revealed that 44% of purchasing decisions would be positively impacted if a lodging or meeting venue had an eco certification. The Green Key Global hotel and meeting directory and industry partner websites offer increased visibility.
