Scandic wins an award for its environmental initiatives
Scandic has long been the front-runner when it comes to sustainable hotel operations. The hotel has shown that it pays to think about the environment. Others have now started taking note of Scandic’s environmental policy, and as a result Scandic received the Climate Cup Reduction Award in Denmark.
“I’m incredibly pleased, on behalf of Scandic and all our highly committed team members, that we have received such public validation of our targeted work for a better environment. Sustainability is an integral part of Scandic’s culture, featuring in our business strategy and in everything our team members do,” comments Jan Peter Bergkvist, Vice President Sustainable Business, Scandic.
The environment – with omtanke
- Two thirds of all the hotels carry the Nordic swan ecolabel.
- Launch of the Sustainable Live Report, where every hotel reports its consumption of CO2 – this year’s target is a CO2 reduction of 30 percent.
- From 1 December 2008, the hotel chain will no longer sell bottled water.
Climate CupNewspaper Berlingske Tidende, business weekly Mandag Morgen and PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Denmark combine forces to identify the businesses that are best at tackling climate change.
