Going Green Oy
Green Key and Blue Flag are sustainability programs run by the international environmental education organisation FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education). Green Activities is a sustainability program developed based on chapters 1-3 and 11 of Green Key with the permission of FEE, and available only in Finland.
The use of Green Key, Green Activities and Blue Flag certificates in Finland is overseen by Going Green Oy which is a certified social enterprise. Program and audit fees are spent on running the programs, and profits are used for supporting the environmental education activities of FEE Finland.
The board members of Going Green Oy are Riitta Salasto (chair), Henna Junttila and Marianne Aalto.
Going Green Oy has been granted the “Social enterprise” mark by the Association for Finnish Work. The mark can be held by companies that have been set up to solve social and environmental problems and dedicate most of their profits to this purpose. Transparency and openness of activities are crucial. In its articles of association or rules, the company must have defined its social objective and the way it spends the profits.

The Green Key Jury
Based on the application and audit reports, the Green Key/Green Activities certificate is granted by the Green Key jury. The jury consists of sustainable tourism experts and representatives of different stakeholder groups. Membership in the jury is a voluntary, unpaid commission of trust. Usually, the jury convenes once every 2 months.
