First Green Globe certification in Slovenia

The Bohinj Park Hotel has officially become the first eco-resort in Slovenia to meet the requirements of the prestigious Green Globe Certification Standard. This is a significant recognition for the Bohinj Park Hotel, one of the most advanced eco-hotels in the EU, and at the same time lays the foundations for the sustainable development of tourism in Slovenia.

Opened in 2009, the hotel has demonstrated a strong environmental commitment from the outset. This recognition from Green Globe, which is the result of a highly respected and selective certification process, is without a doubt a very significant achievement on the trailblazing journey of a champion of corporate social responsibility in Slovenian tourism.

Green Globe is a worldwide certification system based on internationally accepted criteria for sustainable development and management in tourism. The prestigious Green Globe organisation has its roots in California and has been considered the premier brand in the field of environmental responsibility ever since its founding in 1992. It is active in 84 countries around the world. From today, this also includes Slovenia.

The categorisation of eco-hotels focus on five key areas: energy (the impact of the building on the environment), water (water management, wastewater), waste (separation, recycling), eco-activities (education, workshops) and environmental protection (use of biodegradable washing powder, incentivising the use of fair-trade suppliers). The global criteria for Green Globe certification can be met by establishments that are able to prove their contribution to conserving the environment and confirm their positions every two years, ensuring uninterrupted progress in the field of sustainable development.

This most recent achievement confirms the environmental orientation of the Bohinj Park Hotel, while at the same time demonstrating to staff, guests and the public the hotel`s commitment to sustainable development initiatives.
