ΤΟ «ΠΡΑΣΙΝΟ ΚΛΕΙΔΙ»
ΑΝΟΙΓΕΙ ΤΙΣ ΠΟΡΤΕΣ
ΣΤΑ ΠΡΩΤΑ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ ΞΕΝΟΔΟΧΕΙΑ


www.eepf.gr

Tο «GREEN KEY» («ΠΡΑΣΙΝΟ ΚΛΕΙΔΙ») είναι ένα διεθνές Πρόγραμμα που απονέμει ένα σήμα οικολογικής ποιότητας (eco-label). Tο Πρόγραμμα αυτό ενεργεί ως ερέθισμα για τη μετατροπή κάθε τουριστικής μονάδας, μικρής ή μεγάλης, σε «πράσινη». Αποτελεί ένα σημαντικό θεσμό στο ζωτικό χώρο της Βιομηχανίας του Τουρισμού, αφού ευαισθητοποιεί και προτρέπει για την υιοθέτηση πρακτικών φιλικών προς το περιβάλλον, που εγγυώνται την προστασία του και προάγουν την αειφορία.

Απευθύνεται γενικώς σε τουριστικές μονάδες και, για την πρώτη χρονιά εφαρμογής του στην Ελλάδα, κυρίως σε Ξενοδοχειακές επιχειρήσεις κάθε δυναμικότητας.

Το Πρόγραμμα “GREEN KEY” συντονίζεται από το διεθνές ΙΔΡΥΜΑ ΠΕΡΙΒΑΛΛΟΝΤΙΚΗΣ ΕΚΠΑΙΔΕΥΣΗΣ (FEE-FOUNDATION FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION) και λειτουργεί σήμερα σε 17 χώρες παγκοσμίως.

Εθνικός χειριστής του Προγράμματος είναι Η ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΕΤΑΙΡΙΑ ΠΡΟΣΤΑΣΙΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΦΥΣΗΣ, η αρχαιότερη περιβαλλοντική Μη Κυβερνητική Οργάνωση πανελλήνιας εμβέλειας, η οποία κάνει πράξη από το 1951 την ηθική δέσμευσή της που αφορά στη διαφύλαξη και προστασία του Περιβάλλοντος, αλλά και στη διαμόρφωση ισχυρής περιβαλλοντικής συνείδησης.

Η Εθνική Επιτροπή Κρίσεων του GREEN KEY βράβευσε εφέτος, μετά από αίτησή τους και με βάση τη διαδικασία του Προγράμματος, τις πρώτες ξενοδοχειακές μονάδες στην Ελλάδα που ικανοποιούν τα κριτήρια του.
