Radisson Hotel Astana and Park Inn by Radisson Astana (both hotels of Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group) are the first hotels in Kazakhstan awarded with prestigious "Green Key" certificates. 

On the threshold of world's exhibition EXPO-2017, that Astana is holding, these awards became very symbolic and actual achievements. Environmental care is a very topical question, especially nowadays, that's why "Green Key" receiving demonstrates conscientious attitude of Radisson Hotel Astana and Park Inn by Radisson to the nature.

Finn Bolding Thomsen, International Green Key Director, auditing the two hotels said: "I am very impressed with the building management system at Park Inn by Radisson Astana and the social engagement of Radisson Hotel Astana in relation to the surrounding community. I found the work in both hotels with awareness raising of staff and guests through for instance environmental notice board and engagement in sustainability activities a good model for other hotels in Kazakhstan hopefully joining Green Key in the future."

Fedor Filimonov, General Manager at the hotels, added: "We are very happy to become part of the exclusive group of Green Key hotels worldwide, and we are especially proud to be the first two hotels in Kazakhstan receiving the award. The recognition is an encouragement for us to continue our work with environment and sustainability initiatives."
