Third time Green Key GOLD
The Forum is happy to work towards a more sustainable future. In 2023, we achieved gold again in the Green Key assessment, we did the same in 2020, 2021 and now again. Good result!
Green Key is a quality mark for sustainable organisations in the leisure and recreation sector and business market, such as the Forum. The aim of Green Key is to promote appreciation and knowledge of nature and the environment as widely as possible. Worldwide, more than 1,600 companies and organisations in 18 countries are members of the international Green Key quality mark. Forum Groningen is one of them.
To obtain a Green Key certificate, you have to take many measures regarding environmental care and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The inspections are carried out by external inspectors. At such inspections, we receive many tips and ideas on how we could improve. This is how we work hard to make our business processes, services and products more sustainable.
Couple of examples:
- The Forum building is completely gas-free and is heated and cooled by means of the so called WKO (heat and cold storage) installation.
- The catering partner of Forum Groningen is committed to making the world of food and drink healthier, more sustainable and more social, and has formulated its own vision of sustainability, Food Vision 2027.
