Welcome to the GreenCommunity partner network

In addition to the GreenSign-certified hotels, the GreenCommunity also consists of a carefully selected partner network. Without sustainable partners it is almost impossible to run a hotel in a sustainable way, since no hotelier can manage all areas on his own, we need sustainable suppliers and stakeholders.

GreenCommunity - TOGETHER + UNIQUE + GREEN

Successful, fair and collaborative cooperation as well as special conditions for the GreenCommunity are mandatory.

We select our sustainable partners according to "green" criteria and create a symbiosis in our community.

Carbonated or still, chilled and hot - every company will find a tailor-made complete solution in our range. For example, the new series VIVREAU Top, Extra and Fill, which are suitable for quickly filling matching designer bottles. The bottles become eye-catchers with their own logo printed on them. Or the VIVREAU ViTap, which also supplies hot water for tea and is perfect for self-service guests at breakfast or in the wellness area. The daily fresh production of the water eliminates storage and transport costs as well as large amounts of waste. The cost is up to 80% lower compared to bottled water.

Sustainable energy and mobility

Greenpeace Energy - REAL clean energy for hotels

Nachhaltig saubere Energie

For Greenpeace Energy, as a cooperative active throughout Germany, responsible and sustainable action has always come before financial gain. The company supplies more than 180,000 customers, including around 13,500 business customers, with clean electricity and the innovative gas product proWindgas. Greenpeace Energy is organized as a cooperative with over 26,000 members. Their deposits ensure a solid equity base that ensures independence. The cooperative members are not only the company owners, but also customers at the same time, which ensures that interests are aligned: in an ecologically oriented business policy that does not focus on profit maximization.

We also plan, build, finance and operate plants ourselves through our subsidiary Planet energy. So far, the company has built and operates 14 wind farms and four photovoltaic systems. Planet energy is also involved in three other wind farms and implements electrolyser and tenant electricity projects for Greenpeace Energy. The total output of all power plants is 86 megawatts. This covers the annual electricity needs of more than 56,000 average households. Planet energy has so far invested more than 143 million euros in clean power plants. Further projects are being planned.

The commitment of Greenpeace Energy goes even further: We have a say when it comes to creating an energy policy framework. We are testing new concepts, for example for electromobility. We are committed to research projects to promote innovation and pave the way to a clean energy future.

Senertec - SAVE UP TO 50% ON ENERGY COSTS

Senertec

Whether increased air quality, powerful and customizable light, extravagant hair care or sustainable washroom hygiene: We at Dyson believe that even the smallest detail can help hotel guests feel even more comfortable and round off the overall hotel concept.

Strengthen your environmental awareness with the Dachs, the power plant for heat and electricity.

Like a conventional heater, the badger generates heat and hot water. What makes it so special: It also generates “green” electricity.

Of course, such an environmentally friendly energy system is also subsidized by the state and is also exempt from energy tax. Because a badger emits 50% less CO2 than is usual in Germany when generating electricity and heat separately.

With a badger you even have your own green filling station for electric bicycles, electric scooters and electric cars in the house and in the future "fill up" on your heating system - environmentally friendly and largely independent of rising electricity prices.

When the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, we have enough electricity from alternative sources. But what about when there is calm, in winter or at night? The badger - the combined heat and power system - supplements the environmentally friendly energy producers as the third power in the group.

Do you want to save up to 50% on energy costs and protect our environment at the same time?

GLS Bank - What you can do with your money

GLS Bank

Money is there for people - the GLS Bank has been working according to this principle since 1974. As the first socio-ecological bank, it is the pioneer in sustainable banking. It offers all the services of a modern bank: from current accounts with credit cards to savings offers, provisions, financing and investments to donations and gifts (in cooperation with GLS Treuhand).

The special thing about it is that it invests exclusively in companies and projects in the social, ecological and cultural area according to detailed criteria.

This includes ecological agriculture, regenerative energies, the organic sector, independent schools and kindergartens, facilities for the disabled, housing projects, health and culture.

Since it was founded, GLS Bank has worked with high transparency standards. This means that it not only discloses the principles of its business, but also publishes the names of all the companies it funds.

In other words, all corporate loans that are made possible by the money invested by their customers. It also makes its own investments, which are non-speculative, transparent. (Loans to private individuals are of course protected.) Members and customers of GLS Bank therefore know where their money is effective.

With its targeted socio-ecological investments on the one hand and its comprehensive transparency on the other hand, the GLS Bank offers meaningful and future-oriented banking services - with three times the profit: human, future-oriented, economical.
