Green Key Partners with Hotel Association of New York City


OTTAWA, ONT.—Green Key Global announced that The Hotel Association of New York City (HANYC) has adopted Green Key Global’s flagship program, the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, as its preferred environmental certification system for the city’s lodging industry. New York is the first city in the United States to make this designation.

An initiative of the HANYC’s Sustainable Hospitality Committee, the selection of Green Key as its certification partner complements a drive by the association to provide its members with direction in the move to increase their overall sustainability efforts. A Get Certified page on the HANYC’s website provides its members with detailed information on the Green Key Eco-Rating Program.

“Partnerships such as this one with HANYC are important in demonstrating the hospitality industry’s commitment to improved environmental performance,” said Tony Pollard, managing director for Green Key Global. “We are very pleased to support HANYC and its members as we work to achieve mutual objectives.”

“Recognizing the needs of our members and the synergy with the Green Key program, our selection of Green Key Global as a partner will further assist our members in establishing eco-friendly practices and improved environmental performance for their operations while meeting guest expectations, said Joseph E. Spinnato, president, Hotel Association of New York City, Inc.
