Sustainability & Social Responsibility
If you are surrounded by nature, you feel the need to protect it.
We are constantly working to minimize our environmental impact and we want to take responsibility that also extends far beyond the hotel entrance. Below we describe a little briefly what we do. Please let us know if you want to know more, this is something we are passionate about and are happy to discuss more about!
"We are ISO 14001 certified which means that we annually set new targets for all consumption in water, waste, chemicals and electricity to contribute to the central targets within Nordic Choice. We have annual audits to maintain the certification and the vision is that it should be more environmentally friendly to live with us than to live at home.
Today we put a lot of focus on food throughout Nordic Choice. Much with inspiration, and help from, Gunhild Stordalen who made the EAT Foundation. A foundation that aims to get us to eat healthier and more environmentally smart food to achieve sustainable growth on our planet.
Here's how we try to contribute:
- We work with as much local food as we can and change the menu based on the season
- We have removed all products containing palm oil
- All our guests should have the opportunity to have a full breakfast consisting of only organic ingredients
- All fish we serve are MSC certified
- We sort out all food waste and pass it on for biogas extraction.
UNICEF - SWEET DREAMS
Through UNICEF, all Nordic Choice hotels support several local centres in Cambodia that receive children who have been trafficked. Here they get a bed to sleep in, nursing and help to get on in life. We do this together with your guests. Just by staying with us, you contribute to this – the more guests the more contributions to UNICEF. At our reception you can buy bracelets made by women from some of the centers that we support. The revenue goes back in full to the help centres.
Copperhill Mountain Lodge supports the organization called Network, which has been operating in Romania for the last ten years. Here you give support to vulnerable children and families in the form of wood and mead but also with help for self-help and education. Since January 1, 2012, we have been giving a dime per room night to Network's work. In addition, our work uniforms have flies and belts of leather designed by the organization and we sell their products in our shop.
We like to offer our guests alternative ways to consume and transport themselves.
Our Travel Green package means that you who stay with us and who choose to travel to Åre by train may borrow a hybrid car during the stay (valid summer/autumn).
