Energy efficiency & environmental protection




"Sustainability" has been a top priority at Lindner Hotels & Resorts for many years. We have always been enthusiastic about developing projects to maximise energy efficiency in all Lindner Hotels & Resorts and me and all hotels and to live up to our ecological and social responsibility in terms of climate protection. Respectful use of all our resources is part of our daily work.

For example, with our hotel room management system we have reduced the natural electricity consumption in our rooms by around 25% and the CO2 value by 79% since 2006. Through continuous innovation measures, LEDs, energy- and water-saving equipment and new technologies are part of our standard equipment. We have also been able to reduce heat consumption by 20% in recent years.

Global challenges require thinking along, lateral thinking and often a pioneering spirit. In doing so, we also rely on our network of experts. With Greensign/Infracert, we have another experienced hotel partner to further expand and professionally accompany our sustainability measures.

Lindner Hotels AG & Rezemo



"Otto Lindner and rezemo founders Julian Reitze and Stefan Zender met two years ago.

At that time, the start-up for recyclable coffee capsules was brand new on the market. For Lindner Hotels AG, as a family business, sustainability is part of its DNA.

Therefore, it was immediately clear: rezemo is ideal for a cooperation. Now the partners have published a film about it.
