FOUNDED ON SUSTAINABILITY
Overall, sustainability for us is the fundamental element of our entire operation, and no decision is made, a production started, or a new process was introduced without the sustainability angle having defined it first. It is our first priority that sets all the goals.
We are committed to giving our guests a wonderful stay with as little negative environmental impact as possible, while contributing to the common pool of knowledge regarding sustainable practices within daily operations. As a company founded in an entrepreneurial spirit, we are in constant development – but our core strength will always be to provide a warm and personal experience, and to say goodbye to our guests having given them the satisfaction of a wonderful stay, a feeling of having been cared for, a wish to return – and hopefully a few good tips and ideas for a more environmentally sound everyday life.
So what do we do?
When you add sustainability to the picture, it changes and there is a need for completely different routines when it comes to housekeeping. We start by entering each room with fresh eyes to gather an impression - what needs to be done here and what doesn´t. This applies, for instance, to the garbage bin, which is lined with a green biodegradable and compostable bag: we check out the contents and assess whether to replace the whole bag or whether to just lift out the items.
We choose to decorate outside of trends, as we do not want to replace usable furniture but use the furniture until it´s worn out. Therefore, natural materials are also prioritized as they age with grace and can bear a little wear and tear. Furniture is designed by and produced for us with FSC-certified wood and other natural, sustainable materials.
