Our sustainability program

Sustainability for well-being: Enjoyment with respect for the environment.

We are committed to sustainable development. Here is a selection of the measures implemented that are important to us:

Bed linen and towel management

Linen is not changed daily. You will find a leather-laundry-card on your bedside table to indicate your wish for bed linen change.

—–

Soaps, shampoos and their flacons are turned into life-saving products through the non-profit organization SapoCycle. The soaps are recycled by people with disabilities and then distributed to improve the sanitary conditions of families in need.

Energy-efficiency and resource-saving

We use energy-efficient lighting systems and advanced technologies to minimize energy consumption.

—–

We consistently recycle paper, glass, PET, plastic containers, aluminum, light bulbs, electrical materials and batteries.

—–

We reduce water consumption by reducing waste of water, promptly repairing leaks, and installing low-water-use faucets and toilets.

Food & Food Waste

We have introduced vegan and vegetarian options in all of our menus to also appeal to guests who prefer a plant-based meal.

—–

Our chefs at Eden Kitchen and La Muña have introduced “Root to Stem,” a culinary concept that focuses on minimizing food waste by using everything or nearly everything from each ingredient.

—–

To avoid food waste, we reduce our buffets wherever possible, including at breakfast. However, you will find an adequate “à la carte” breakfast menu as an alternative.

—–

We sensitize our suppliers and partners regarding sustainability.

—–

Oranges have a double use. On one hand, their peel is removed to be combined with sugar and produce “Oleo Saccharum”. Secondly, oranges are squeezed to be used in cocktails or as juice.

—–

The “Oleo Saccharum” used for the gimlet cocktail is a sustainable product, for which no additional energy is needed in its production.

—–

Our wines are all from Europe, with one exception. 50% of our wines are certified organic and 10% biodynamic. For the rest, we always try to choose small producers who care about the health of the soil the quality of the grapes and environmentally friendly winemaking methods.

—–

We consider the origin of the products, their packaging and delivery routes. Whenever possible, we buy regionally and nationally.


Environmentally conscious mobility

We recommend traveling by public transportation. The tramstation Kreuzstrasse is only a few minutes’ walk away.

—–

Our Microlino electric car allows you to explore the surrounding area comfortably and emission-free. By minimizing the vehicle’s energy requirements, we promote responsible use of resources.

—–

Use the Miloo e-bikes we provide as your preferred transportation option and actively contribute to the promotion of sustainable mobility.

Paperless guest experience

By using a Digital Check-in System, we significantly reduce paper usage. Of course, an analog check-in procedure is still possible upon request.

—–

Instead of printing and archiving paper documents, we have implemented an electronic document management system. This saves us space, reduces paper usage and allows easier access to information.

—–

At check-out, the information invoice is shown on the iPad and then sent as an e-mail instead of being printed out.

Raising the awareness of the teams

La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich employees are sensitized in terms of awareness, behavior and responsibility towards the environment.

—–

The Green Committee, consisting of employees of La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich, is continuously optimizing processes and working on new, innovative sustainability points in the hotel.

—–

We are learning every day and look forward to your input and feedback.
