Since the year 2000 we have made an effort to reduce energy consumption. We buy our 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.
This is the situation at the hotels:
– 11 out of 24 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.
