What is the Green Key program?
The HAC Green Key Eco-Rating Program examines more than 140 criteria in evaluating the environmental performance of tourist accommodation establishments. Energy-efficient heating, air-conditioning and lighting systems, biodegradable cleaning products and toiletries, water savers and energy-efficient appliances and recycling and recovery practices are some of the main evaluation criteria. Certified establishments can earn 1 to 5 green keys.
