Sustainability

Since the foundation of the monastery, the monks of the Benedictine Abbey Maria Laach have paid attention to sustainability. This over 920 old tradition is a standard for us in the Maria Laach.
And not fancy marketing wording:
We are proud to one of seven hotels in our federal state which are entitled to have the DEHOGA Umweltcheck seal in Gold. If it is your wish, you stay climaneutral in our hotel. Your event, festivity, business-meeting will be – if desired –  organised as sustainable as possible.
Promised!

We would be glad to help.

In 2018, the Seehotel Maria Laach managed to cover the requirements of the DEHOGA environment check.  The sections Hotel and Gastronomy were audited. Energy/clima, water, waste and groceries/local sourcing were evaluated. This measure was sponsored by the German Environment Agency.

Stay climaneutral?

If desired, yes.

How to “climaneutral” stay in the Seehotel?

If desired, we clima-neutralize your Seehotel stay. How is that? The Carbondioxid emissions of your stay are calculated. This amount of emissions is translate to an sustainablity equivalent to compensate the greenhouse gases by our partner. We provide a matching certificate.
Contribute to global climate protection and support acknowledged and chosen climate protection projects with your climaneutral stay. Above this, you sponsor to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, e.g. fighting poverty or improving the living conditions in emerging and developing countries. 
The chosen climate protection projects verifiable save carbondioxid and are audited and certified according to international standards. Additional safety is provided by the TÜV-Austria-certification process of ClimatePartner for the compensation of the CO2 emissions.

 

The principle of climaneutralisation

Companies, processes and products are climate neutral when their carbon emissions are calculated and offset with the support of internationally recognized carbon offset projects. Along with avoiding and reducing carbon emissions, offsetting is another important step in comprehensive climate protection. Greenhouse gases such as CO2 spread out evenly in the atmosphere, meaning that greenhouse gas concentration is the same all over the world. It is therefore irrelevant for greenhouse gas concentration and global warming as to where emissions are caused or avoided. Emissions which cannot be avoided locally can therefore be offset elsewhere through carbon offset projects.

ClimatePartner is one of the leading solution providers for companies climate protection policies. ClimaPartner has proven to be a reliable partner to provide climaneutral stays in our Seehotel.
