Certified GreenSign Hotels

Sustainability and saving resources are key concerns of all ATLANTIC Hotels. The ATLANTIC Hotel Sail City Bremerhaven and the ATLANTIC Hotel Wilhelmshaven have been focussing on these issues for a long time already and have now become the first hotels in the group to be certified by the GreenSign Institut GmbH. This institute supports optimisation concepts for sustainability in the hotel industry and continuously further develops them in close
collaboration with the individual companies. The multilevel system, which has been successfully applied in more than 350 hotels around the world to date, is one of a kind in the industry. First, the ecological, economic and social aspects of all hotel processes are examined and evaluated in the scope of an audit. This is followed by suggestions for further optimisation, with a total of 5 levels able to be achieved. 

Due to its proximity to the Wadden Sea, listed by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage site, the ATLANTIC Hotel Wilhelmshaven is very committed to environmental protection and has been a national park partner for years now. Just like the ATLANTIC Hotel Sail City, it is also involved in the United Against Waste e.V. Initiative, which aims to avoid food waste. Both hotels offer a “Green Service”, where guests receive vouchers if they choose not to have their rooms cleaned on a daily basis. The offering is complemented by a charge point for electric vehicles and bicycles available to borrow. All these measures contributed to the Level 4 GreenSign certification. The ATLANTIC Grand Hotel Travemünde has also received a GreenSign Level 4 certification through its social responsibility and sustainable development.

Other ATLANTIC Hotels are set to follow their good example, as “the beginning is half the whole” also applies where sustainability is concerned. The plan is for all hotels to be certified by the end of 2023.
