Today, the Green Key Global Eco-Rating Program has a total of 2,729 member hotels with 1,368 in Canada, 1,324 in the United States and 37 others around the world; a three-fold increase since 2008. Early in 2011 Green Key Global marked another milestone by having a member hotel in every state of the USA.
