In order to reduce CO₂ and counter the rapidly deforestation on Madagascar we support the myclimate project in Madagascar. It includes the production and distribution of efficient cookers and environmentally friendly solar-powered cookers. As a result, up to 269,621 t CO₂ are being reduced annually.
Sustainability at Dolder Hotel AG
Sustainability is certainly possible at a five-star hotel. At Dolder Hotel AG, owner of the Dolder Grand, it is a central tenet of our corporate culture.
Together with our partners, suppliers and guests, we act in the interests of the environment, society and economy. We focus on critical areas such as CO2 emissions, energy consumption, use of food items, paper consumption, procurement, waste disposal, recycling, water management and corporate social responsibility.
Many measures, one goal
We have implemented a number of different measures to help protect our world and our environment. One of these measures was the introduction of an environmental management system that complies with the EarthCheck Company Standard. EarthCheck is a leading international environmental certification and benchmarking programme for the travel and tourism industry, and our sustainability partner.
Dolder Hotel AG’s written statement on our contribution to sustainability was drawn up as part of our overarching sustainability concept. It includes details of our efforts to improve environmental, economic and social sustainability. You can find it here .
