Since opening in 2016 the hotel has developed and expanded its sustainability policy with a view to achieve the Green Key award, which is a leading standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry.
The prestigious eco-label represents a commitment by businesses that their tourism establishments adhere to strict criteria, such as reducing water and energy, using environmentally friendly cleaning and washing products, effective recycling and using fair trade and sustainably sourced food products.
A Green Key stands for an establishment’s promise to its guests that by opting to stay with such an establishment, they are helping to make a difference on an environmental and sustainability level.
We are delighted to announce we have achieved the international Green Key award for operating as a sustainable business, joining over 3000 sites around the globe committed to becoming greener.— Twr y Felin Hotel (@TwrYFelin) July 26, 2019

We’d like to congratulate Twr y Felin Hotel on their success. We’ve seen mounting concern recently about the damage that’s being caused to our natural environment, so it’s important to recognise and celebrate Welsh businesses that are taking the lead on sustainability...Green Key provides an opportunity to put Wales on the map as a 21st century, sustainable destination. It’s reassuring to know that when you visit Twr y Felin, you’re visiting a place that is committed to caring for our environment.
