Scandic praised in climate change report

The pan-Nordic hotel chain has been reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project since 2016 and has now had its score raised.

Scandic Hotels has been rewarded for its long-term efforts to reduce its environmental impact.

In the recently published CDP Climate Change Report 2018, the pan-Nordic chain was ranked at the level A-, which puts it among the most environmentally minded hospitality companies worldwide.

Scandic has been reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) since 2016 and has now managed to get its score raised to ‘A-’.

It says the news is “very much the result of the company’s goal-oriented and systematic work to reduce the environmental impact of its operations”.

The company is currently developing a new sustainability strategy that will be launched later this year, promising a “sharpened focus and challenging goals” embedded in its activities.

Certified green
Scandic began reporting on environmental matters back in 1996, and today 90% of its hotels are environmentally certified by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel in the Nordic countries, the EU Ecolabel in Poland and Green Globe in Germany.

“CDP congratulates Scandic Hotels for achieving the A- level, demonstrating continuously strong environmental management procedures, and acknowledges Scandic for their third consecutive participation within the Climate Change programme,” says Micaela Quesada Longgren, engagement manager at CDP Europe.
