The small changes we can make to fight global warming together

As a hotel we would like not only just to provide enjoyable experiences but we also like to contribute to positive social development by leaving our foot print as small as possible. We want to meet – or exceed – our guest’s expectations in a sustainable way.

Though environmentalism often seems expensive, some solutions are not, as a  lot of changes simply just take some adjustments, staff training, and guest awareness to be successful. These are some fairly simple changes we as hotelliers and you as guest can start making that will have big impacts;

  • No more unnecessary cleaning 

By discontinuing to clean rooms that don’t really need cleaning we will save up million liters of water and thousends liters of cleaning agents. Per year! If you are staying with us for more than one night we will no longer automatically clean your room. If you would like us to clean or refresh your towels or sheets, we will, of course, do so.

  • Eliminate Single-Use Toiletries

Sure, the basics like soap, shampoo etc. are necessities to have when traveling, but do not need to be provided in Single-Use small bottles.  They can simply be replaced by larger, refillable bottles. Other necessities like toothpaste, thooth brush, shaving cream etc can be purchased att the front desk.

  • Install a pentry with fridge and water refill / coffee stations

We have chosen to place a general mini bar and coffee station in our penrty on the first floor, instead of one on each room.

Implementing these pentry and station not only cuts down on the extreme amount of trash that hotels create by using water bottles, plastic cups etc, but they also cut down on unnessecery electrity use each mini bar consums.

  • Reuse and Recycle to reduce waste

The typical hotel guest produces approximately 1 kg of waste per day. One result of this has been that recycling has become the norm in our hotel, with everything from morning papers to how food is served and drink containers being recycled.


  • Dramatically Reduce Food Waste

One of the biggest problems that hotels face when tackling their carbon footprint is food wastes. The amount of food waste in the hotel industry ranges between 25 and 35%, the majority of which is overproduction in the hotel kitchens, with buffets contributing significantly. Eliminating buffets is the easiest route to fixing the problem. Instead we offer a breakfast menu with bookable breakfast times. for a better breakfast experience, in the hotel's restaurant. 

  • Add More Meatless Options to the Menu

Reducing meat from our diet has been proven to aid in reducing global warming. Factory farming has a large impact on deforestation, water pollution and greenhouse gas production. In addition to bringing guests healthier meals, adding more meatless items could have a big impact on the environment. thats why we are integrating more plant-based choices and meat substitute options to our meny

      • Include More Locally Sourced Options

      Buying local has such a tremendous impact on an economy and since hotels benefit from locals as employees, as well as them sharing their space with visitors, it only makes sense that hotels and their guests should put money back into their local economies. Adding items that come from local companies, foods in the restaurants, in-room snacks, and gifts in the gift shop can make a big difference for a local company. In addition to this economic impact, buying local uses significantly less fuel and employs more local workers.

      • Use less energi witthout adventuring the customer experience

      Hotels are in operation 24 hours a day and it uses a lot of energy. Many hotels are now working tirelessly to reduce energy use, while maintaining the quality of the guest experience. This includes energy elevators and heat recovery chillers that use excess heat to produce hot water. We use less energy thanks to use of energy-efficient air conditioning and low-energy suffocating LED lighting and light sensors.  replace showers, faucets and toilets with alternatives that require less water, we reduce water use by 35% or more. These are all aspects that have a positive environmental impact, but at the same time maintain the quality of the customer experience.
