OTTAWA — The Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association (SHHA) is collaborating with Green Key Global to promote sustainability and certification to its hotel members, it was announced Jan. 30.

Under the partnership, Green Key Global will work with the SHHA to educate its members on the benefits of being certified by Green Key Global’s programs, Green Key Eco-Rating and Green Key Meetings.

Both programs focus on improving daily operations to make properties more sustainable. A high rating is achieved when a property adopts better practices to improve their energy usage, waste and water management, community involvement, land use, indoor air quality and more.

“We are pleased to be partnering with the Saskatchewan Hotel & Hospitality Association to bring Green Key Global to its members,” said Susie Grynol, managing director of Green Key Global, in a release. “This partnership demonstrates the SHHA’s commitment to becoming a leader in environmental performance. We look forward to supporting their initiatives throughout all corners of the province.”

In addition to assessments, Green Key Global provides members with resources, including toolkits, templates, performance reports and marketing materials designed to support the sharing of their efforts to partners and guests.

Member ratings are promoted via Green Key Global’s listing affiliate network, which includes AAA, CAA and Expedia, and the Green Key Global website and social media channels.
