Environment & Future
A sustainable hotel
So that Visby and Gotland, as well as our whole planet, will be a good place to live and work even for our children and grandchildren, we all need to take responsibility for endeavoring to care for our earth, our island and each other. This is the vision that we have been working towards ever since the von Schulman family took over the hotel in 2007.
The first thing we did was to re-model our garbage room to enable us to sort our guests’ rubbish into 17 categories. In 2008 we bought a completely electric Peugeot van. In 2009 we became Gotland’s first Scandinavian environmentally-certified (Svanenmärkt) hotel and we continuously work to become better every year.
However, it is not enough only to be on the forefront if you want to save the world. Naturally we want others to follow our example. We see this as an educational challenge and hold lectures now and then for others in our industry upon request.
We also collaborate with two sustainability consultants from Japan who visit us with their clients to learn more about work with sustainability in Sweden and on Gotland. There have been 34 groups who have visited over the years with more and more coming every year.
