Since year 2000 we've worked hard to reduce energy consumption. We buy energy from Ishavskraft, a company that delivers 100 % renewable energy. Between 2008 and 2011, our electricity consumption was reduced by 7 % per guest night. The reduction amounts to the annual consumption of electricity in almost 600 villas.
At the moment:
- 50 % of our hotels have stopped using oil to provide energy and are now using more environmentally friendly energy sources, such as district heating, pellets and geothermal heating.
- Almost 80 % of all Nordic Choice hotels use renewable electricity from Ishavskraft.
- The ISO 14001 certification has made our environmental efforts more systematic; we measure energy consumption in all hotels and use the results to help us reduce the consumption.
