Sustainable Hotel: Innovations regarding sustainability have become indispensable for hotels. Our goal: To align Hwest Hotel Hall in a way that our economic success goes hand in hand with the preservation of our ecosystems and the well-being of all people. We understand sustainability in the hotel not as a status quo, but as an opportunity for continuous development.
Learning. Improving. Sticking to it. We are constantly reducing our carbon footprint. What we have already achieved: Regional products for breakfast. Consistent waste recycling in all areas of the hotel. Sustainable textile management. Tesla charging stations. In the course of this year, we will accomplish the following: Photovoltaic system on the hotel roof. Charging stations for all electric cars.
For us at Hwest Hotel Hall, sustainability in the hotel begins in the seemingly simple. That is, in recycling. That means we separate what is thrown away in such a way that it can be collected and recycled. We are constantly working on reducing our overall waste and increasing the amount of recycled waste. We separate our waste consistently. In all hotel areas. From the guest room. All the way to the hotel management office.
Recycling in Austria and its smooth process already works very well for us. About 58% of our waste is recycled directly in Austria. This score ranks us in second place in Europe.The target for Europe is 55% for the year 2025 and 65% for the year 2035. The Austrian waste management sector is thus already on track to meet Europe's targets.
We currently provide 6 operating Tesla Supercharger charging stations at the Hwest Hotel Hall. In our underground car park. Passing through on the A12 motorway. City trip to Innsbruck. Whatever reason. While you slumber peacefully in your hotel bed. Nibbling from the breakfast buffet. Your (Tesla) electric car charges super fast and safely in our underground car park. For your next trip. Charging points for all other electric cars will be installed in the course of 2022.
Did you know? More than 60% of the electricity produced in Austria comes from hydroelectric power sources. Along with wind power, biomass and solar power, about three quarters of the electricity in Austria is generated from renewable sources. The last coal-fired power plant in Austria was taken off the grid in 2020. The electricity mix in Austria is therefore already characterised by very low CO₂ emissions. This makes charging at our Tesla Superchargers particularly sustainable.
For every photovoltaic system on a hotel roof, less coal has to be burned somewhere. Do you like that? We do too! That's why a photovoltaic system is currently being installed on our hotel roof. Photovoltaic systems are a way to effectively reduce electricity costs. Solar power is both profitable and sustainable.
Good to know. Electricity costs in hotels are often very high. Not only because they are usually large buildings. One reason is that guests keep the electricity running in their rooms when they are not present. Help to achieve the climate targets and spare our environment from CO₂. Only leave your smartphone plugged in until it is fully charged. And switch off the light when you leave the room. Thank you so much :-)
If you take buses and trains, you reduce climate-damaging emissions and protect the environment. You can reach Hwest Hotel Hall regardless of whether you have a car or not. Even within the Hall-Wattens-Innsbruck holiday region you can do without a car in full. How? Quite simply! Hall-Thaur train station is just a stone's throw away from Hwest Hotel (450 metres). With connections to all local and long-distance trains. Best of all, with the guest card you can travel free of charge on all buses in the region. No matter where to. Innsbruck. Tulfes. Absam. Mils. Gnadenwald. Hall in Tyrol. Bus travel is relaxed and will bring you to your desired destination. Would you like more activity and fresh air? No problem. We offer in-house e-bikes for hire.
Facts & Figures: Public transport is climate protection as such: Instead of using a car, you take the bus or train. Saves about 15 million tonnes of CO₂ per year! This is roughly equivalent to the annual emissions of a city like Vienna with its households, traffic and industry.
