Rezidor Hotel Group is pleased to announce that Park Inn Sheremetyevo has received the Green Key eco-label, becoming the very first recipient in Moscow and the 7th hotel in Russia to achieve the certification.

The hotel team at the Moscow airport hotel has done outstanding work in achieving the highest results from all the hotels audited in Russia. To certify for the eco-label, the hotel established a committee from mixed departments to ensure all criteria were fulfilled. The committee held a week of presentations in a meeting room for guests and staff to come in and discuss environmental issues. The feedback of this exchange is now integrated in the hotel's Responsible Business action plan going forward.

"Green Key helps to create environmental awareness with the staff and make them true Responsible Business ambassadors in their interaction with the guests," said Gerard Kelly, General Manager. "The Green Key connects with our company-wide Responsible Business program and speaks to the eco-conscious travelers. Being the first hotel in Moscow to receive the Green Key is definitely a bonus for us."

Environment protection is the one of the basic principles of the Rezidor Hotel Group. In 2011, the hotel group became one of the leading hotel business companies that worked out a huge program concerning social responsibility and ecology. The Company promotes an actively responsible attitude to health and to guests' and employees' safeguard; respects social and ethic principles in society, and assists in decreasing any negative influence of the company upon the environment.
