April 4, 2011

The Hotel Association of Canada, in partnership with MPI Foundation Canada, has launched the Green Key Meetings Program.

As an extension of the existing Green Key Eco-Rating Program, the new Green Key Meetings Program will provide travel, meeting and conference planners with a sense of a hotel or resort’s level of commitment to environmental issues as they relate to meetings.

The Green Key Meetings Program evaluates a hotel’s meeting and convention operations on a scale of one to five, with five being the highest ranking. Results are based on a thorough evaluation of the hotel’s sustainability efforts in the following five areas:

  1. Core (Carbon, Energy, Waste, Water, Air Quality),
  2. Communication (Information, Training),
  3. Activities, (Purchasing, Auditing Community),
  4. People (Health), and
  5. Ancillary Services (Exhibitions, Audi/Visual).

Upon completion of the Green Key Meetings assessment, the property is awarded a ranking and is listed on the program’s website.
