Sustainability

Part of our philosophy

As a family company, we think of ourselves as part of a greater whole and, already in our 4th generation, are committed to responsible corporate conduct that are mindful of all areas of society and, in particular, protect and support the prospects of future generations. We believe that this strongly value-oriented, holistic and very responsible way of thinking and acting creates value for future generations. In addition to the strong, emphatic focus on our fellow human beings and on a working environment that supports internal and external growth as well as the social responsibility of our actions, a significant part of our corporate philosophy now also includes the conservation of natural resources and sustainable management with regard to the climate, the environment and therefore our livelihoods.

That's why we are so proud to have been awarded the leading sustainability seal GreenSign. The fantastic level 4 certification is both an award and an incentive at the same time. It is our heartfelt desire to make a contribution towards addressing the major ecological challenges and maintaining sustainable economic activity. We do this as a matter of firm conviction and are delighted to have a professional and renowned partner by our side in GreenSign, with which we can continue to further develop in this essential area. We must act, even if things are not happening where we live or perhaps only happen after we are gone.

The certification takes into account seven core areas for sustainable hotel management. These include the environment, purchasing, regionalism & mobility, quality management & sustainable development, management & communication, social engagement and economic responsibility. Below are a few examples of how we intend to make our contribution.
