Best Western Plus Gyldenløve Hotell was awarded the Eco Lighthouse Program certificate already in 2003.
We think of ourselves as a generally innovative hotel and want to be innovative when it comes to the environment as well. Best Western Plus Gyldenløve Hotell was one of the first hotels in our area to be awarded an environmental certificate. We reduce costs and benefiits in areas such as waste reduction, waste treatment, sorting, energy consumption, water consumption and work environment.
We also put demands on our suppliers to be environmentally responsible, to their materials use/consumption and recycling of carton, paper, bottles, etc.
We also benefit in having a competitive advantage being awarded an environmental certificate, when it comes to making offers to larger companies. As part of the process they often ask for our Environmental program.
Why the Eco Lighthouse program?
The Eco Lighthouse program is a tailor-made program for environmental certification of small and medium-sized companies and public administration in Norway. Through the program companies reduce their impact on the environment, cut costs and benefit from their status as an environmentally responsible company.
Companies that complete the Eco Lighthouse program are awarded certificates.
The Eco Lighthouse program is supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Environment.
