The Maritim environment initiative
The hotels you choose for guests during a conference, event or business gathering can really help make a positive green impact. Maritim Hotels was the first chain in Germany to gain the Green Award for its Bonn hotel which has played a part in hosting the United Nations Climate Change conferences over the years.
Since this time, Maritim Hotels continues to be deeply committed to sustainability including: implementing water saving technologies, employing advanced LED & sensored lighting, heating via natural gas, cooling using electronic temperature gauges, offering reusable beverage packaging, and implementing strong waste management and recycling practices and audits.
On the F&B front, all Maritim menus include locally and regionally grown seasonal ingredients and there is also space on breakfast buffets dedicated exclusively to farm to table options.
Further, a number of hotels within the Maritim German network have pledged to observe the German Convention Bureau’s Sustainability Codex, which provides green guidelines for meetings suppliers and allows sustainability performance to be measured and benchmarked.
Finally, as part of its pro environment initiative, Maritim provides external training to groups of employees so they can serve as sustainability consultants and the company also works with transportation providers like Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) to provide environmentally sensitive travel options for its guests.
