In common with all responsible companies NYBORG STRAND cares about social and environmental conditions in the world of which we are part.
For us it is an ongoing process and a conscious choice to work with social and environmental issues. We want our social responsibility to be as transparent as possible and when we have the opportunity to help or take account in a responsible manner, this will always be a key consideration with regard to our conduct.
With regard to the environment, our goal is to emit as little carbon dioxide as at all possible, at present, NYBORG STRAND is 100% carbon neutral in terms of heating, and we are continually reducing the amount of unsorted waste per guest per night. We have reduced water consumption by over 10%, and our energy consumption has been reduced by over 20 % within the past year.
As stated, for us it is an ongoing process with which we have been working for many years, and it is a natural choice to take a moral stand in everything we do. Investment in environmental and energy improvements has, e.g. resulted in the installation of a new, modern CTS air conditioning system for controlling heating and ventilation, and we are also currently installing energy-saving LED lights, where possible, we have installed night-time heating reduction and both we and the environment are able to benefit from our recycling of cooling water / steam heat for heating the hotel's utility water. Behind the scenes, our waste sorting means that the waste takes up much less space, and everywhere, our cleaning staff have made significant efforts to reduce the consumption of environmentally harmful cleaning agents.
NYBORG STRAND is ready for electric cars
Hotel guests and conference delegates can charge their electric cars at NYBORG STRAND, where we have installed four charging stations for electric/hybrid cars.
The four charging stations that have been installed can charge four electric cars at a time, and a full charge will take six to eight hours. The charging stations are therefore ideal for charging overnight or during longer conferences.
The provision of the charging facility for holiday guests and conference delegates aligns well with our overall focus on climate and the environment, a focus which has already secured us the Green Key certification and a Green Star classification.
Consideration is key, both in terms of environmental concerns – a sustainable world, a good society in which to live - but also when it comes to care, care for EVERYONE, which includes providing the possibility of access for everybody. We are therefore engaged in an on-going dialogue with www.godadgang.dk, which based on UN standard rules on equal opportunities for people with disabilities, focuses on the rights of disabled people to participate in all aspects of social life on an equal footing with everyone else. With the accession of the standard rules, the individual member nations, including Denmark , have undertaken to establish national action programmes aimed at making the physical environment accessible and provide access to data and information.
The need to travel without the need to worry, of course, depends on whether you are a wheelchair user, suffer from allergies or have impaired vision or hearing. Therefore, we must constantly keep up to date with what is needed. In order to ensure the highest possible standard, we have signed up to "Accessibility for Everyone" – it is a perfectly natural consideration.
And our efforts continue... We wish to be transparent at all times - you can count on it!
