ChargeHolidays has many acredited partners thriving towards sustainable tourism and a greener, healthier planet. The eco-tourism sector has a large impact on this goal. However, it is not easy to behave sustainably – neither as an accommodation nor as a traveler. That’s why we cooperate with different groups that share high quality standards.

Green Key

The Green Key award is a leading standard for excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainability in the tourism industry. With this prestigious eco-label, establishments pledge that their tourism businesses comply with the strict criteria of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). A Green Key stands for an establishment’s promise to its guests that they are contributing to environmental protection and sustainability by choosing to stay in such a business. The high environmental standards expected of these establishments are maintained through strict documentation and frequent audits.

Why these certification standards?

Our partners have been recognized by the GSTC, proving regularly their sustainable friendly behavior.

What is GSTC? The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) was established by UN agencies together with NGOs and the private sector to act as an independent organization. They have developed the Manual for GSTC Accreditation. GSTC-Accredited means that the certification procedures largely meet international standards for transparency, impartiality, and competence.
