GreenSign Health

Because health is the most important good.

Healthy well-being comes together in many areas, because a healthy environment is the central component of holistic health promotion. Sustainable management means prioritizing environmental protection measures as well as sustainable health care and constantly developing in this direction. Hotels certified with GreenSign Health stand for environmentally conscious, sustainable and healthier facilities and operations. They meet the most important criteria for providing low-pollutant, low-emission and hygienic experiences for their employees, guests, partners and investors.

GreenSign meets Sentinel Haus Institut.

The GreenSign Health certification was developed by the GreenSign Institute in close cooperation with the Sentinel Haus Institute. Peter Bachmann is the pioneer for healthy and sustainable construction. Together with Suzann Heinemann, they make no compromises when it comes to health and well-being.

      Why hotels should get certified for health and sustainability?

      Health in your hotel.

      GreenSign Health is an add-on module for sustainably certified GreenSign Hotels. Certified hotels take responsibility for the health of their guests and employees and thus also for their safety and well-being.

      A GreenSign Health certification is also possible if your hotel is not yet GreenSign certified. However, since Health is based on Hotel, we recommend you to do both certifications. With the help of the certification catalog you can get inspired for further health measures.

      GreenSign Health looks at the following areas in your hotel:

      • Indoor air quality

      • Use of low-emission products

      • Light quality

      • Hygiene concept

      • Employee training

      • Water quality

      • Interior

      Your added value?

      After a successful certification process, the GreenSign Institute and the Sentinel Haus Institute award the GreenSign Health sustainability certificate. The certification identifies possible weaknesses and potential for improving health performance. Recertification takes place after three years with a new on-site audit. Furthermore, we support you in achieving a better perception among guests, new target groups and stakeholders.

      2. Log in to the GreenSign tool & self-evaluation

      The actual certification process begins with the self-evaluation of the company when filling out the certification catalog.

      The nearly 50 criteria of the Health Certification comprise seven core areas and follow recognized frameworks. They are answered according to the current ACTUAL state in the hotel.

      3. Audit and award with GreenSign Health

        “Ultimately, everything that surrounds living organisms, humans, animals and our entire environment affects their and our health. […]

        GreenSign Health certification provides us with tools to identify these pollutants and form measures to reduce them. In this way, we not only achieve a healthier quality of life for everyone and better working conditions for our employees, but also incidentally increase the quality of sleep and stay of our guests. I am therefore very happy about this new opportunity and congratulate the initiators on this valuable and sensible step.“
