The Green Star Hotel Programme – a Private & Public Partnership


The Green Star Hotel Programme was jointly developed within the framework of the programme (that the Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)) between Egyptian and German tourism keyplayers: Orascom Hotels & Development; the Travco Group, TUI AG, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and AGEG Consultants. They all joined forces to establish the Green Star Hotel Initiative (GSHI) in 2007, with the aim of improving the ecological performance and competitiveness of Egypt’s hotel industry. The programme is supported and patronized by the Ministry of Tourism and has been linked and supported by the leading international organizations in tourism from the very beginning.
