Varbergs Kusthotell is not just an individual company, we are part of a bigger picture, a society, a country and a planet. This is why we consider it essential that our sustainability work is linked to the shared global sustainability goals.
The global goals are the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development that the world’s countries have ever adopted and exist to achieve great things by 2030. Although the agenda is written for nations and governments, it is a shared responsibility. We all can and must work actively to achieve the fantastic goals on the agenda.
Of the 17 global goals, we have chosen to highlight four goals that are closest to our heart, are most closely linked to our business, and where we have the greatest opportunity to make an impact. Our sustainability work is an integral part of our day-to-day work. Here we describe the measures we are already taking every day.
In our own operations we must create clear purchasing procedures to champion ecolabelled, Swedish-manufactured and locally produced raw materials, products and subcontractors. We must also communicate our sustainable efforts to our guests, and make it easier for them to act sustainably when they visit us.
We must actively work to reduce our waste volumes and increase the proportion of reused and recycled material.
We will contribute financially to environmental organisations in order to protect marine environments and, through actions and direct interventions, contribute to the dissemination of knowledge to staff and guests about the importance of a healthy sea.
We want to be a safe workplace that promotes inclusion in our operations and assists young people who want to enter the workplace.
