Our actions for the environment

  • For catering, maximum sourcing of raw materials from producers close to the hotel in order to promote the local economy and reduce the carbon footprint
  • Recycling of vegetable waste using a composting facility located at the back of the hotel
  • Recycling and recovery of cardboard, plastic and aluminium bottles
  • The water bottles offered in the rooms are made of rPET plastic, which is 100% recycled plastic. Of course, the water is drawn from Alsace (Source Liese)
  • Since 2014, heat pumps have been installed for the heating of the entire establishment
  • Since 2014, creation of our own water treatment plant (located under the hotel car park) without chemicals, based on bacteria, for the treatment of the hotel and spa wastewater, before discharge into the public network
  • Spa water de-chlorination basin using the natural action of the sun (no chemicals)
  • During the renovations in 2017 and throughout the new works, switch to LED lighting, which uses very little energy, in the restaurant rooms, corridors, reception, bathrooms, etc.
  • Abandonment of individual soaps in the bathrooms in favour of ecolabel certified organic soap dispensers
  • Since 2017, complete abandonment of pesticides in the maintenance of outdoor areas. Only white vinegar is used for weeding
  • Since 2018, deployment of charging stations for electric vehicles in customer car parks (currently 11 x 11 kW charging stations available free of charge)
  • In 2020, replacement of the hotel's diesel-powered courtesy vehicle with a hybrid electric/unleaded petrol vehicle
  • Since 2020, single-use gift boxes made of cardboard have been replaced by reusable felt pockets for a second life as cases for tablets or various papers
  • The vast majority of paper supplies used by the hotel on a daily basis (letterhead, envelopes, hotel brochures, leaflets, etc.) bear the PEFC label, which guarantees sustainable forest management
  • As of 2019, paper-based communication media will be abandoned as soon as possible in favour of digital dematerialisation thanks to the hotel's mobile application.
