A more sustainable hospitality industry

Our business should contribute to a sustainable development with regard to environmental, social and economic aspects. We strive to improve profitability and streamline our operations based on a sustainable perspective. This means that we aim to prevent and reduce our environmental impact and make a positive contribution to our society.

OUR VISION

Through our vision of a unique Laplandic welcoming in combination with a sustainable approach to hospitality, we focus on three key areas in our daily work:

  • Evironment to prevent and limit our impact on the environment surrounding us
  • Social for a more equal society
  • Economic for a healthy economic development of our region and our suppliers

THE FIRST IN SCANDINAVIA

As a part of our commitment Silver Resort is the first Scandinavian hotel and restaurant business to commit to a goal within Science Based Targets, to limit global warming in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Some examples of our work

  • Limit the use of energy in all our facilities during times when our hotels are not open
  • Single use items e.g. bars of soap are being replaced with mounted dispensers with eco-friendly soap
  • We actively strive to reduce food waste and look at more sustainable ways of handling our food waste
  • When we buy new equipment we always consider ergonomics and work environment aspects as well as a careful choice of suppliers with an active sustainability work
