A GREEN ATTRACTION is regularly checked both before and after the labeling to ensure that the establishment meets the criteria.

GREEN ATTRACTION has a number of procedures to ensure compliance with criteria and progress in environmental efforts.

  • The application process
  • Approved by Jury
  • Ongoing audit and inspection
  • Ongoing documentation and ensuring compliance

The application process

To be awarded the GREEN ATTRACTION, an application must be submitted with relevant documentation from the attraction. Afterwards, a consultant visits the establishment to help and ensure that all the requirements are met and the necessary documentation is found or developed.

Approved by Jury

When all requirements are met and the documentation is in place, the application will be sent to approval by a Jury. If the jury approves the application, the attraction can then be awarded the GREEN ATTRACTION.

Ongoing audit and inspection

At the initial consultancy visit, the form is completed and a joint environmental procedure, goals, waste plan, activities and information material targeted at the restaurant are prepared jointly.

All GREEN ATTRACTION receives audit before the award and a visit again after approximately one year after the award. Thereafter, the company is visited every two or three years, ensuring that the requirements are still met, so that the company can retain the GREEN ATTRACTION and get advices on how to proceed with the environmental work.

The audit is carried out by consultants who have a thorough knowledge of the scheme and its environmental requirements and who can also advise and save with the labeled companies.

The cost of the inspection visit is borne by the GREEN ATTRACTION, while all expenses for any consultancy, necessary investments, etc. is held by the attraction.

Ongoing documentation and ensuring compliance

In addition to the ongoing inspection visits, the attraction must submit information about selected criteria and how the site is continuously improving at the turn of the year.

The marking may be removed from the attraction if it is found that the fulfillment of the criteria is breached.
