Skål International secretariat awarded Green Globe Certification

Skål International secretariat awarded Green Globe Certification ( After an intensive onsite audit, the Skål International secretariat has successfully met the Green Globe standard requirements and been awarded the Green Globe Certification – the premier worldwide certification program for sustainable management and operations.

The Green Globe audit was carried out on September 16-17 by Yohann Robert, accredited Green Globe auditor of François-Tourisme-Consultants based in France and Skål member from Paris. In order to qualify, the Torremolinos office had to score a conformity rate over the 51 percent limit. The green and sustainable attitude of the Skål International General Secretariat has lead to several actions as follows:

• Specific waste sorting actions (recycling/reusing) implemented.

• Environmentally-friendly supplies purchased (recycled paper, biodegradable and eco-labeled cleaning products, etc.).

• Water and energy consumption reduction goals (dual-flush toilets, low-flow faucet aerators, energy-efficient lighting, etc.).

• Sustainability educational programs supported and encouraged (Skål Ecotourism Awards, 101 Skål Tips, UNEP, UNWTO ST-EP program, Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Exploitation in Tourism, Code of Ethics in Tourism, etc.).
