Nordic environmental prize for Scandic Hotels

Scandic rewarded by Nordic Council for sustainable tourism efforts

The Nordic Council has decided to award Scandic Hotels for its efforts to promote sustainable tourism in the Nordic region and beyond. “A conscious environmental policy and a series of apparently very minor and simple initiatives have proven highly successful,” ensuring that the hotel group clinches the Nordic Council Environment Prize. It will, together with prizes for literature, film and music, be handed over at the annual session of the Nordic Council in early November.
The theme of the Nordic Council Nature and Environment Prize 2011 is sustainable tourism. Businesses, organisations and individuals with a proven track record of lessening the environmental impact of tourism in the region were all eligible to be nominated for the DKK 350,000 (€47,000) prize. Scandic Hotels is described as a pioneer and trendsetter in sustainable tourism for the last two decades.
