Sustainable Nature Protection

SEMINARIS IS COMMITTED TO A SENSITIVE APPROACH TO NATURE AND OUR ENVIRONMENT

  • Seminaris is clearly committed to sustainable development and ecological responsibility.

  • By installing aerators in all rooms and public areas of our hotels, we have been able to significantly reduce water consumption. The treatment of rainwater will be one of our next projects.

  • Since 2021, we have been sourcing 100% green electricity in all our hotels and are working to renovate our buildings for energy efficiency as well. Three hotels are already equipped with photovoltaic systems and two houses have combined heat and power plants.

  • Guests can dispense with room cleaning if it is not necessary – this saves water and cleaning products. The sustainable guest cosmetics in the rooms are packaged in recycled materials.

  • And in most of the hotels we maintain our own bee colonies, which diligently collect the nectar for our guest honey.

Reducing emissions through mobility management

Business travel with a small CO2 footprint

For business trips, we use public transport, carpooling, shared cabs or e-vehicles wherever possible. Video conferences are preferred. Air travel does not take place less than 600 kilometers away.

Reducing emissions from commuting

We enable mobile working and home offices – this saves travel. We support the purchase of public transport tickets and run an e-bike fleet for employees.

Environmentally friendly travel for guests

Conference participants can book the environmentally conscious Deutsche Bahn event ticket directly via our website. Almost all destinations have their own charging stations for e-vehicles.

Environmentally friendly stay

Guests and employees drink premium filtered tap water. This saves a lot of emissions from the production and transport of bottles. Those who book our “Green Rate” plant a tree.

  • Commitment to wild bees and beneficial insects

    In order to provide a home for many wild bees and beneficial insects, we set up insect hotels and expand insect-friendly plantings at our houses.

  • Art on the container

    For the hotels that are attractive to bike travelers, we build “bike garage containers” and beautify and green them in cooperation with schools and artists in the region.

  • Using rainwater

    All Seminaris Hotels are located in green areas. In 2022, we will increasingly use and recycle rainwater to conserve resources when watering.
