SUSTAINABILITY - The Empire Riverside Hotel has been committed to sustainability for many years. We develop projects, implement ideas and are not afraid to invest in the future. For example, in 2018 we were one of the first hotels in Germany to replace our plastic straws with glass straws.Read more
At the beginning of 2022, we enthusiastically defined the topic of sustainability for our hotels together in a working group, created a project plan, had to face challenges and set our goals for the near and distant future.
Contributing to sustainability does not only mean saving resources by not changing guests' towels every day without asking. Sustainability means more than climate protection.
Economic as well as social sustainability must be considered to the same extent in order to really contribute to the future.
As a company with, together with the Hotel Hafen Hamburg, over 300 employees, we have a social responsibility that we take seriously and are constantly improving.
In this blog you will find current topics, everything about ongoing projects as well as further contributions on the topic of sustainability at the Empire Riverside Hotel.
