Outstanding Involvement in Climate Protection
Hanover, 15 March 2012.
During the course of the ITB, the non-profit organisation for CO2 compensation measures, My Climate, presented an award to the TUI hotel brands Iberotel and Dorfhotel for their outstanding involvement in climate protection. The award selected the two hotel brands of the World of TUI as the "1st climate-neutral hotel chain in Germany". The CEO of My Climate Deutschland, Stefan Baumeister, emphasised that the hotels in Boltenhagen, at Fleesensee and on Sylt have compensated for 100 percent of their CO2 emissions since the beginning of the year, and have worked very efficiently for years in the area of climate protection. In addition, My Climate welcomes the accompanying campaign entitled "You are entering a climate protection zone", with which Iberotel and Dorfhotel are sensitising their guests for environmental protection with out pointing any fingers.
"Climate-neutral living and meetings in the German hotels of Iberotel and Dorfhotel comprise another important step of the TUI climate initiative that started in 2009," explains Dr. Harald Zeiss, Head of Sustainability Management with Germany's leading tour company. TUI is convinced that climate protection will become more and more important in tourism. Iberotel and Dorfhotel compensate for their entire CO2 emissions for their guests without any extra charges. Guests can make an additional voluntary donation at the hotel's reception of one euro per room and night or compensate for the annual mileage of their cars.
The compensation funds are used via My Climate worldwide for climate protection projects with the WWF Gold Standard in the areas of renewable energies and energy efficiency that ensure sustainable development, such as a wind farm in Turkey.
