Salla Reindeer Park was established in 1996. Since its establishment, it has been clear that the program services are ecological and the operating environment is cherished and used in a sustainable manner. Now, more than 20 years later, it is time to show these results with Green Key certification. The company awarded with the Green Key label is committed to increase the environmental awareness of its personnel and customers, improving the use of energy and water, and reducing the environmental impact of operations.
To qualify for the Green Key certification, a company must meet environmental criteria that are internationally defined. It includes, for example, monitoring of water and electricity consumption, guiding and training customers and staff, and various environmental criteria, such as the Ecolabel for all detergents (Swan Flag).
In Finland, Salla Reindeer Park is second Green Key certified attraction.
What does Green Key certification mean to us in practice? The Green Key 12 point criteria defines the basis for the certificate. The criteria include environmental management, customer and staff engagement, waste management, sanitation, energy saving, as well as procurement related items that a company must complete before applying for a certificate. In order to maintain certification, new, stricter criteria are introduced every year, which are reviewed during the annual audit. In practice, this means moving towards greener activities every year. The staff is trained and guided to operate in an ecological and environmentally friendly manner.
By doing the right thing and adjusting our operations, we also convey information and images to our customers, who we hope will bring ideas and ecology to their own environment. In the future, Green Key will be featured with characters, stories and small-scale campaigns in our operations.
