Green Key Certification


Green Key is a voluntary environmental certification for hotels, accommodations and other tourism companies. Sveastranda Camping is Green Key Environmentally Certified.

The program is today the largest global environmental certification for accommodations. Green Key is recognized and supported by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP).

Green Key intends to promote sustainable tourism, as well as to help prevent climate change by rewarding and supporting businesses that implement positive environmental measures.

Green Key aims to change the practices and behaviors of tourism actors, including guests, businesses, authorities and communities, in a sustainable direction. This through raising awareness among both employees and guests, by promoting sustainable practices and use of technology, by supporting environmentally friendly and responsible businesses, reducing energy consumption and resource consumption.

Green Key started in Denmark in 1994 and was incorporated into FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) in 2002. It has since grown and has now spread to 45 countries and more than 2400 certified entities.

In Norway, Green Key is run by the FEE Norway Foundation.
