NYBORG STRAND has been awarded the Green Key eco-award
As a guest of the hotel, you are a guest of a business that has always worked seriously hard on environment and sustainability, and now prides itself on being certified as a Green Key hotel (previously den Grønne Nøgle). Den Grønne Nøgle/Green Key is an eco-label.
An eco-label is a programme which involves companies meeting a number of specific environmental requirements in order to obtain the eco-label. In return for meeting the requirements, the companies are permitted to use the eco-label in their marketing.
Green Key is the eco-label for the tourist industry. This means that hotels, inns, holiday and training facilities, hostels, camping sites, holiday homes, restaurants and sports facilities are able to be awarded Den Grønne Nøgle.
To be awarded the Green Key requires that certain environmental requirements are met. Currently, criteria exist for all the above types of businesses within the tourism industry – you can read more about the criteria here.
Green Key has become an international eco-labelling organisation, at present represented in 16 countries (and with more countries on the way). As a result, its name was changed from Den Grønne Nøgle to Green Key. Following the name change has come a transitional phase, during which both the Danish and English names and logos will be used.
We will continue to emphasise our seamless package of quality, comfort and environmental responsibility in order to achieve a higher level.
We hope you will have a pleasant and environmentally friendly stay when visiting us. If you have any advice or ideas for further initiatives, we would love to hear from you.
Welcome to NYBORG STRAND - welcome to a hotel that wants to do something for the environment...
