Green Key Pilot
Green Key is a non-governmental, independent, eco-labelling programme for the tourist industry, which is recognised and supported by the World Tourism Organisation and the United Nations Environment Programme. Keep Wales Tidy (KWT) wish to run a 14 month pilot of Green Key in Pembrokeshireshire, with the longer term aim to establish Green Key in Wales. Currently Green Key is not run anywhere in the UK. The pilot will be based on working with 25 tourism businesses in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and establishing an Advisory Committee, with members from tourism interest groups locally as well as national organisations such as Visit Wales and Welsh Water, to develop and test the criteria for the programme. Crucial to the pilot is the development of an IT system to enable the programme to be run electronically, which is essential to make participation and evaluation as easy as possible. The pilot will also allow KWT to set affordable fee structures, which reflect the different sizes of establishments. A business plan will be comissioned to ensure that the Green Key Programme and the fee structure that emerges can be rolled out effectively, is economically sound and contributes to the upkeep of the local environment by incorporating a form of visitor pay-back.
