Focus on the environment and sustainability

At Skovshoved Hotel, our environment and sustainability are key and one of our main focus areas in the way we work.

We are currently in the process of applying for the Green Key certificate that we will achieve in the first half of 2020.

A Green Key certificate signifies multiple initiatives that underline our sustainable and green initiatives. This includes the use of resources (e.g. water and electricity), the pre-sorting of waste, the used cleaning agents, and also more sustainable and organic offers and solutions for our guests. This includes chargers for electrical cars, rental of bicycles and organic products.

Our environmental and green policy

We comply with the Green Key’s criteria and standards

At Skovshoved Hotel we are fully aware of our responsibility to minimize our impact on the environment, and we are therefore proud members of HORESTA and are applying for a Green Key certificate.
