The environment is important to us!
"Greenwashing" does not exist with us!

DThat's why we purchase our green electricity from Salzburg AG.
It is generated from 100% renewable energy sources, such as hydropower.

The natural gas we purchase and which is fed into the supply networks by LichtBlick is 100% climate-neutral.
CO2 emissions are fully offset by climate protection projects.

Environmental protection is particularly important to us!

The satisfaction of our environmentally conscious guests is our goal.

And we don't just talk about it, we also do something about it!

"Hotel Gasthof Schäfflerwirt" has been a member of the Bavarian Environmental Pact since 2010 and is continuously committed to sustainable economic growth with environmental and climate protection.

  • Our entire business is supplied with state-of-the-art heating technology in the form of a combined heat and power plant. The electricity produced is consumed by the company itself. The combined heat and power plant is supplied exclusively with climate-neutral gas. This saves a total of 150 tons of CO2 per year.
  • Saving energy and resources through intelligent room control in all our guest rooms. The smart room control system protects the environment and reduces our CO2 emissions many times over. The system automatically recognizes whether guest rooms are occupied or vacant. Depending on occupancy, all rooms are heated or controlled individually.
  • We clean with micro dry steam. This is steam heated to 190 degrees. This means that chemical cleaning agents are no longer used. As a result, we can rule out any contamination of our waste water with chemicals. We do not generate any plastic waste with cleaning containers. The regular water consumption per room cleaning is approx. 50 liters per cleaning. We have reduced this to 1.5 liters with micro steam cleaning!
  • For example, we have flow restrictors on all washbasins and showers, return packaging and separate waste.
  • The use of energy-efficient light sources is a matter of course for us.
  • Our laundry is environmentally friendly and we use the best ecological quality raw materials.
  • In our new hotel kitchen, we rely on a future-oriented and energy-saving mix of induction and gas.
  • We rely on suppliers with a regional product range. Local agriculture plays an important role in this.

Thank you for our current award "Umwelt und Klimapakt Bayern 2021"!

The prerequisite for participation in the Bavarian Environmental and Climate Pact is the practical implementation of operational environmental protection measures that go beyond the legal requirements.
