we, the Bad Pyrmont Tourismus GmbH, have set ourselves the goal of bringing into focus the subject "Environmental and social sustainability" of our actions.
On this subject we have already taken several attempts.
For example, with your stay you support a "water project" in Ethiopia. As partners of Plan International Germany, we donate a part of the revenue of the premium club-card concept. Through your stay in Bad Pyrmont - the valley of the bubbling springs were said earlier - you help the people, especially children, having free access to clean drinking water.
Furthermore, we have paid attention to the production of the corresponding promotional materials that these are printed CO2-neutral. In addition, the Premium / and the Platinum Club Cards are made of biodegradable material.
Last year we introduced the "organic seal" with a part of our hosts at Pyrmont. The hosts, who participate in it, will provide a minimum level of sustainably produced organic food on the breakfast buffet.
But locally, we try to live the theme environmental sustainability. A first attempt here is to support the Naturschutzbund (NaBu) Bad Pyrmont, a part of the postage revenue of catalog mailings is donated annually.
Since 01.05.2013 we buy for conferences and meetings in the Tourist Information only the following, fairly traded organic products (coffee, tea, sugar, biscuits).
Since 01.07.2013 we refer in our Tourist Information electricity from 100% local hydropower, which is produced by a hydroelectric power station at our river Emmer.
In addition, we have taken the first step in the right direction in merchandising. Since 05.07.2013, you can buy our new, ultra-chic "active oasis hoodies and -Polos", which are produced under fair conditions organic.
Please understand that you, even if you want it, can not adjust everything accordingly at once. However, we will gradually expand our sustainably produced portfolio!
