We are doing something for the environment
With a view to the beautiful Amager Fælled it seems obvious: Of course we think green at Danhostel Copenhagen Amager. And we were not in doubt for even a second when we got the opportunity to become a DONG climate partner.
What is a climate partner?
As a climate partner, we take responsibility for the world’s climate challenges. It may sound big and intangible, but in reality it is very simple: We set specific goals for our own climate action, we look critically at our own energy consumption, and then we support the renewable energy, for example via offshore wind farms.
Action areas on Amager
Although the climate partnership should be seen as a long term investment, and the large economic gains lies in the future, there are also short-term results.
At Danhostel Copenhagen Amager we have initially chosen to look at our lighting, toilets and circulation pumps.
Among others we have chosen these action areas:
- Energy-saving lamps where appropriate
- Waste sorting
- Low-flush toilets
- Water-saving shower faucets
- Water-saving tap faucets
- Temperature control
- Environmentally friendly district heating
- Room temperature sensors in corridors and bathrooms
- Eco-friendly detergents
- Linen, towels and other textiles are cleaned in environmentally approved laundry
- Eco-friendly pumps
- CO2 neutral website
In a very short time we have learned that taking interest in the society and running a business does not have to be two mutually exclusive things. It can go hand in hand.
The natural choice
When we choose to be a climate partner, it is basically because we want to make an active choice! A choice for us, but also a choice for future generations.
Future guests should also have the opportunity to enjoy a stay here, where we have high skies and green expanse that stretches as far as the eye can see.
