Sustainability – our commitment
Growing climate change also poses a growing challenge to the event industry. Events are always associated with pollution, so the call for environmentally friendly events is growing louder.
We have committed ourselves to responsibility in handling the natural resources of our environment. Our numerous sustainability measures towards reducing and eliminating pollutant emissions constitute our voluntary contribution with added value. Furthermore, we have balanced out our CO2 emissions and are compensating for a part of our inevitable emissions by co-financing a certified climate protection project (composting in Cape Town, South Africa).
You too can contribute to climate protection! Our emissions calculator shows you the levels emitted by your overnight stay, your arrival and departure, and how you can compensate for them. And of course, you can request a certificate confirming your commitment.
