At GreenLine-Hotels.com we combine travel pleasure and comfort with a sustainable lifestyle.
Sustainable tourism offers the opportunity to travel in a more conscious and at the same time eventful and healthier way. Travelers are often faced with the challenge of finding accommodations that actually meet the most important criteria of sustainability. Seals and labels are an important guide.
We offer you a large selection of really sustainable hotels that exercise their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and provide comprehensive information about it.
Many hoteliers know that sustainability is of great importance for society and for a secure future and have developed a special awareness of shared responsibility for environmentally friendly and socially responsible tourism. They have recognized sustainability as an opportunity for positive change and combine their hospitality with modern, future-oriented and ecological corporate management. We want to bring you together with these hoteliers!
Find your ideal sustainable travel destination and happily return home with "green spirit"!
Fortunately, more and more hoteliers are taking on the task of making a minor impact on the environment and are investing time and effort in making their hotel sustainable without sacrificing guest comfort. A recognized sustainability certificate helps travelers to recognize the sustainable commitment of a hotel. But what exactly does the hotel do to earn such a seal? We clarify:
Many measures that a hotelier takes to sustainably set up his business can be seen directly by guests on site, including:
Vegan and vegetarian options on the menu
Use of seasonal and regional products or even organic food in the preparation of the dishes
Rental of bicycles and eBikes
Public transport tickets available or even included in the room rate
The presence of an e-filling station
Avoidance of plastic packaging, e.g. at breakfast
LED lamps in the building
Motion detectors outdoors and indoors
No minibars, kettles and coffee machines in the hotel rooms
Vegan or natural cosmetic products
The presence of an herb garden / greenhouse
Possibility to decide against room cleaning during the stay
A comprehensive environmental management system also includes many measures that the guest cannot see directly, such as
Training for hotel employees for more sustainable awareness and engagement
Special contributions and appreciation for employees
Heating energy: cogeneration unit or district heating from waste incineration
Green electricity from solar energy, hydropower, bioenergy or photovoltaics
Social engagement and charity events
Corporate Health Management
CO2 compensation through investment in one or more climate protection project(s)
Extensive waste management system
Optimized supply chain - shorter delivery routes through regional providers
Energy management system / energy check with experts
Cooling concepts in the kitchen / first in first out
PS: The CO2 footprint of a hotel can also be a good indicator of sustainably committed hotel operations. If the hotel publicly states that it improves from year to year, it can be assumed that a lot will be done in terms of sustainability.
