BRUSSELS—The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Brussels, has become the first hotel in the city to gain the Green Key for its environmental efforts.
The Green Key is an international eco-label awarded to leisure organizations and facilities. It demands the fulfillment of a list of environmental requirements containing a number of criteria.
Besides environmental demands, such as controlling the production of waste and the use of water and electricity, the criteria include also demands on policy, action plans, environmental education and communication. Apart from the international baseline criteria each country also adds 20% of national criteria taking into account legislation, infrastructure, policies and climate of the country to ensure adjustment to national and cultural characteristics.
