For a greener future

Find out about our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, both within our own operations and within our value chain. Our Climate Fund enables us to contribute to a greener future!

Our climate work

Climate Fund

Through our climate work, we reduce the carbon footprint of your hotel stay in a number of ways. In April 2022, we launched our very own Climate Fund in order to reduce carbon emissions in our own operations, as well as to finance the development of climate-friendly solutions within the hotel industry. In 2022, we donated 17 million NOK to the fund, which resulted in 28 project investments to reduce the carbon emissions of our existing hotels and to support several startups developing sustainable solutions for the travel industry.

Our climate work

Our Climate Fund has allowed us to initiate several projects for a greener organisation! At Clarion Hotel® The Hub in Oslo, a 250-sqm solar cell installation on the roof will generate around 30,000 kWh of electricity per year. This will save around 11,100 kg of CO2 per year, the equivalent of four laps around the globe in a car!

There will be a similar solar cell installation on the roof of Quality Hotel™ The Box in Linköping. This is expected to generate around 42,000 kWh of electricity per year, which is roughly 4% of the hotel’s total energy consumption. The project will thereby result in an equivalent CO2-saving of roughly four laps around the globe in a car or 15,624 kg of CO2 per year.

Our climate work

At Quality Hotel™ Friends in Stockholm, 280 sensor-controlled shower mixers will be installed to reduce water consumption. The project is expected to save 300,000 litres of water per year, and it will also reduce energy consumption since less hot water will need to be heated. This in turn translates into a CO2-saving of 4,200 kg per year.

The estimated CO2-saving of these projects is the equivalent of ten whole laps around the globe in a car, and that is based on just 3 of the 28 ongoing projects!

Partnership

In partnership with ClimatePoint

The savings also enable investments outside our own organisation. Two funds have been set up in partnership with ClimatePoint: Food & Agrotech and Buildings & Construction. Through these investments, we support startups and entrepreneurs developing sustainable solutions within hospitality, both for today and the future. 

Our goal is for our own organisation to be climate-neutral, and we want to achieve a 50% reduction in emissions in our value chain by 2030. Let’s make a difference together!
