In the current context, where concern about climate change and environmental conservation is increasing, the hotel industry has assumed a crucial role in promoting responsible tourism and the preservation of the natural environment. In this sense, sustainable hotels are leading the way towards a greener future by adopting practices and policies that minimize their environmental impact and promote sustainability.

For this reason, Minor Hotels once again received the Green Key certification for 13 of its hotels in Mexico, which seeks the execution of standards that guarantee the promotion of the development of a sustainable society.

The Green Key distinctive is an international recognition granted to tourist establishments that meet high standards of sustainability and environmental responsibility. This certificate is managed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and is recognized in more than 60 countries around the world.

The objective of the certificate is to promote sustainable tourism practices and encourage environmental protection in the hotel and accommodation industry. Minor Hotels has obtained the distinction for meeting a series of criteria related to key areas of environmental management such as minimizing the impact on climate change, increasing resource efficiency and developing more sustainable services. All this, reducing the environmental footprint with responsible consumption of natural resources.

“Our environmental strategy is channeled through UP FOR Planet, where the roadmap is defined to move towards decarbonization, efficient management and responsible and circular consumption.

To achieve this, we rely on three lines of work: the first Sustainable Infrastructure and Buildings; the second Processes – Operational Standards and the third Sustainable Purchasing, commented Carla Amado, PMO America.

Green Key certified establishments are monitored and undergo strict audits to ensure they maintain sustainability standards. The first on-site audit is carried out when applying for certification and subsequently an inspection is carried out every year and then every three years. By joining Green Key, hotels commit to operating in the most sustainable and efficient way.

“We are committed to leading the way towards more responsible and sustainable tourism and to continue innovating in practices and policies that benefit both our guests and the environment. We firmly believe that sustainability is not only a duty, but also an opportunity to create a better world for future generations,” concluded Lorenzo Graciano, general director of the Mexico & Cuba Region of Minor Hotels.

The hotels that received the certificate this year are:
NH Collection México City Santa Fe, NH Collection México City Centro Historico, NH Collection México City Reforma, NH Collection México City Airport T2, NH México City Valle Dorado, Hilton Aeropuerto Ciudad de México, NH Puebla Historic Center, NH Querétaro, NH San Luis Potosí, Avani Cancún Airport, NH Collection Monterrey San Pedro, NH Monterrey La Fe, NH Collection Guadalajara Providencia, NH Collection Mérida Paseo Montejo.

This certification has been granted to more than 5,000 establishments in more than 60 countries, making it one of the most important sustainable tourism badges internationally.

With this, the company demonstrates its commitment to environmental protection and can be an important factor of choice for conscious travelers looking for accommodations that respect the environment and promote responsible practices.
