#SecretaríaDeTurismo.- Attending as a witness of honor at the presentation of Green Key badges to 150 Grupo Posadas hotels, the Minister of Tourism (SECTUR) said that this recognition is a guarantee of sustainability in the management and operation of lodging establishments, adhering to strict regulatory criteria stipulated by the Foundation for Environmental Education.

He commented that this praiseworthy initiative, which began in Denmark in 1994, represents a commitment to the environment and to the competitiveness of the tourism sector; and that Mexico ranks eighth in the world in terms of establishments with this distinction, and the first in the American continent.
