Sustainability and environmental protection
Sustainability is exceedingly important to the five hotelier families of the Dolce Vita Hotels. Using resources and our land responsibly is an essential part of the Dolce Vita management strategy. We at the Dolce Vita Hotels see it as our duty to operate in a more sustainable manner and to convey the documentation of this ‘green thinking’ to the outside world. Key points are the ecological construction of the hotels, promoting e-mobility, purchasing eco-certified products (consumables in the hotels), as well as valuable cooperation with organisations that are committed to climate protection. Our pilot project with ‘Plant-for-the-Planet’ is the most important of them all. A very bold project with great success. In cooperation with Plant-for-the-Planet and our guests, we plant real trees and thereby play a small part in climate protection!
- Food from South Tyrol = #dvlocal
We support local producers and farmers in the immediate vicinity! We specifically select partners and suppliers who have adopted a consistent approach: Regionality and sustainability! These foods are highlighted daily on the menu cards in the hotels.
- Energy and construction
You can see the sustainable construction design in many details at all Dolce Vita hotels. Maximising and increasing the economic potential of the buildings and ecological and sustainable energy production are just some of the key aspects.
- E-mobility in the hotels
There are enough e-fuelling stations for your electric car in all five Dolce Vita hotels!
- Sustainable consumables
As little plastic as possible, as many environmentally friendly raw materials as possible. Numerous items and materials are available for the Dolce Vita hotelier families to use in their efforts to achieve an environmentally friendly and sustainable footprint (eco-certified drinking straws, cosmetics, napkins, etc.).
We are working together with the international organisation Plant-for-the-Planet. Together, we are planting trees!
Where we are planting trees together
Now we children are saving the world! …and the Dolce Vita Hotels support the children and Plant-for-the-Planet by planting trees! We have set a goal with the help of guests, friends and staff: over three years (2020, 2021, 2022), we will plant 10,000 trees and play our part in protecting the environment by reforesting woodland! We both consciously and unconsciously leave our own personal CO2 footprint behind every day. Electricity, heating, consumer behaviour, eating habits or transport all make a contribution to this.
Travel, in particular, generates CO2 emissions. Dolce Vita Hotels are aware of the impact of travel, which is why we have decided to partner with Plant-for-the-Planet. We help the organisation to plant trees and also help train new climate justice ambassadors through other children.
Keep your own ecological footprint as small as possible and counteract this with planted trees.
Just €1 gives one tree the chance to bind CO2 emissions.
Plant-for-the-Planet plants a new tree every 15 seconds on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. The planting project shows how easy it is to plant trees effectively on a large scale. The initiative plants trees itself through its own products (e.g. Die Gute Schokolade, test winner at Stiftung Warentest) and campaigns (e.g. ‘Stop talking. Start planting’) and motivates people to join in planting trees. Children train each other to become ambassadors for climate justice at academies, which we actively support financially. More than 88,000 children and young people from 74 countries are already involved!
