Sustainability


The SwissTech Convention Center was designed for low, optimal energy consumption:

  • The hotel is powered by 100% renewable energy
  • We have no air conditioning or heating, it is equipped with an system that uses lake water to regulate the temperature
  • All bedside lamps are equipped with LED bulbs
  • Water fountain connected directly to our water supply

In addition :

  • we only work with local suppliers who have a responsible environmental policy in place
  • Local breakfast provided by the bakery Boulangerie Clément right by the hotel

We minimize and sort waste :

  • Amenities, flyer and disposable literature are provided only on request
  • Coffee bean machine with paper cups
  • Waste sorting is done by clients and staff
  • All printing is done by the EPFL printing center which only uses recycled paper
  • Use of digital versions of as many documents as possible e.g. reservation confirmations or transport cards

Join us in our commitment to sustainability and climate protection   

Climate-neutral stay with myclimate «Cause We Care»

Using resources sparingly to protect the environment is important to us. You can help us with this: As part of the myclimate «Cause We Care» initiative, we are giving you the opportunity to make a voluntary contribution with us for climate protection and sustainability.

With a contribution of CHF 1 per overnight stay, you can support our sustainability measures and offset the CO2 emissions of all your overnight stays. As a thank you, we promise to double the contribution. A part of the sum will be used to support valuable international carbon offset projects from the myclimate foundation. With that your stay will be climate-neutral. The remaining amount will be invested into local or organisational sustainability measures.
