From Talk to Action
Sustainability is a very big part of the CABINN concept. We don't just talk about the best way that we can take care of the environment. We do something about it. This is clearly shown in our hotels themselves. They are conceived, designed and built to give our guests a positive hotel experience with lower energy consumption.
Our Green Commitment
We use much less energy for heating than most other hotels. This is because our rooms are smaller as well as highly insulated. Furthermore, our rooms have no more than the required number of light fixtures, smaller televisions and no unnecessary electrical appliances (e.g. trouser presses).
We have also designed our bathrooms without bathtubs and whirlpool baths because they both consume a great deal of water. Instead, all our bathrooms have showerheads fitted with water-conserving filters. All these initiatives contribute to reducing energy consumption for the benefit of the environment.
However, we know for certain that we can make a difference in other areas as well. A good example is our cleaning, where we only use detergents carrying The Nordic Ecolabel. Similarly, all our bed linen is washed and treated according to the criteria of The Nordic Ecolabel.
Our Green Foundation
We regularly implement new projects which build on the solid and sustainable foundation upon which the hotel chain rests. Our aim is to constantly improve our routines and procedures as well as products and services to reduce our environmental footprint, for example:
• Replacing technical installations
• Using eco-friendly products
• Training staff
• Actively collaborating with regulatory bodies
• Ensuring sustainable sourcing and investments
Our new green initiatives include replacing the computers in our reception areas with new versions that consume 50% less electricity. We have also modernized several ventilation systems and are in the process of replacing all halogen light bulbs with low-energy LED bulbs to further reduce our electricity consumption.
Continuously Making Green Improvements
No matter how many new green projects we carry out, we understand that we will never finish improving our efforts when it comes to sustainability. As mentioned, we don't just talk about the environment at CABINN, we do something to improve it. Not just occasionally, but all the time.
