The environmental work
"The Nordic Swan"
The eco-label is called "The Nordic Swan" and is the official Nordic ecolabel, introduced by the Nordic Council of Ministers. As the 95th hotel in Sweden, Hotel Concordia became eco-certified in April 2005.
We were delighted to receive this certification. Our main environmental goal in the near future is to continue to keep the high level of quality concerning our environmental work.
In 2019, we invested in our own solar energy plant on the hotel's roof, which annually reduces our CO2 emissions by 5-6 tonnes. This plant produces about 13-15 MWh / year.
We only buy electricity from fossil-free energy sources and these are wind & hydropower and our own solar energy production.
The eco-licens is renewed
In 2023 a full scale review where executed by SIS Eco-labelling and now we have renewed our eco-certificate until the end of 2026. This control of our environmental work showed a number of positive things, including our decrease level of water usage.
The context of The Nordic Swan Ecolabel
A hotel that is certified with "The Nordic Swan" has met the following standards/demands:
Respects the load that the environment carries from a product during its entire life cycle; that is, from raw material to waste product.
Demands quality and function. The product must have at least the same qualities as other equivalent products.
To make sure a product labelled with "The Nordic Swan" constantly belongs to the best out of an environmental point of view, the standards and demands for being labelled with "The Swan" gradually increases.
Our environmental policy
"At Hotel Concordia in Lund Sweden, we will always follow the present environmental legislation and continuously strive to maintain and improve the environmental conditions, both the ones of our guests and also the ones of our staff. To fulfil these conditions requires a great amount of work and a general environmental philosophy within a number of areas:
Fresh and clean water with an approved torrent of water in our water taps.
Cautious and environmental use of energy.
Environmentally friendly cleaning products and washing routines.
In their daily work, all our staff should think and act out of an environmental point of view.
Sorting of recyclable products.
Disposable goods should be used as sparsely as possible.
Throughout the year we are working together for a better environment and how to increase our knowledge of the environment. We realize the importance of protecting the natural environment surrounding us. Our estate (the hotelbuilding) is cultural labelled and this makes us very cautious when renovating or making changes inside the hotelbuilding. For many years we have been using environmental routines, based on a positive, thoughtful and long-term environmental philosophy. From April 2005 we are environmental certified according to the international environmental standards ISO 14001. The eco-certification is called "The Nordic Swan".
