Raising awareness and behavioural changes

We wish to offer you pleasant accommodation and many possibilities to discover our city of Maribor and our wine region, and we kindly invite you to join us on safe and green holidays. Committed to the responsible care for environment and safety, we made one step further. We have won the sustainability certificate and eco-label Green Key. This will be an additional guideline to us and assurance to you, our guests, that we are trustworthy and safe destination for your vacation.

The Green Key certificate is a leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry. This prestigious certificate represents a commitment by businesses that their tourism establishments adhere to the strict criteria stipulated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). A Green Key stands for an establishment’s promise to its guests that by opting to stay with such an establishment, they are helping to make a difference on an environmental and sustainability level. The high environmental standards expected of these establishments are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent audits.

Green Key officially aims to:  

  • Increase the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable methods of operation and technology in the establishments and thereby reduce the overall use of resources.

  • Raise awareness and create behavioural changes in guests, staff and suppliers of individual tourism establishments.

  • Increase the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable methods and raise awareness to create behavioural changes in the hospitality and tourism industry overall.


We put a huge focus on informing and involving visitors in the measures being taken by an establishment towards being more environmentally friendly and sustainable. We are also ensuring that the staff operating at the establishment are well informed and trained in the fields of environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.


Green Key is constantly searching for new and sustainable methods of operation and use of technology in a bid to reduce the overall environmental footprint through lower use of energy, water, and waste. The change helps the establishments engaged in Green Key in saving costs.

Add value

Positive environmental credentials are becoming more and more important to travellers when they are trying to decide on a place to stay. Green Key symbolises a commitment to the environment and sustainable development which is extremely attractive to potential guests.


After achieving the prestigious Green Key certificate, this can be used by the establishment to showcase its engagement in environmental and sustainability issues.
