Best Western properties in the United States and Canada will offer Green Key Global’s sustainability certification organization through a new partnership, the companies announced Friday.
Best Western parent BWH Hotels will serve as a “preferred supplier” of Green Key Global’s hotel certification for sustainability practices, according to Green Key Global. The collaboration will “help strengthen [Best Western’s] efforts and provide credible recognition for their sustainability practices,” Green Key Global director Rebecca Bartlett Jones said in a statement.
Best Western joins recent Green Key Global hotel partners, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Accor Hotels in North America.
The partnership follows Green Key Global’s recent entrance to the United States thanks to a planned joint venture with the American Hotel & Lodging Association, announced in September. Green Key Global was launched by the Hotel Association of Canada in 1994.
