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 a solar energy development project in Tanzania from the myclimate foundation. With that your stay will be climate-neutral. The remaining amount will be invested into local or organisational sustainability measures.
