GreenSign Certificate

Hamburg, 31 August 2022

Great commitment pays off. Our focus on ecological, economic and social sustainability has proven successful.

The Hotel Hafen Hamburg an den Landungsbrücken is now a certified GreenSign hotel and has been awarded Level 4 out of 5 for its progress and milestones achieved in the area of sustainability.

Some time ago, our General Manager Enrico Ungermann met the GreenSign team at a sustainability event, exchanged ideas with them about sustainability in our hotels and explained our projects, successes as well as challenges and goals.

After a comparison with other providers who could support us on our way to an even more sustainable company, we finally decided to choose GreenSign as our partner on our way to an even more sustainable company. In addition, GreenSign has recently reached a huge milestone - the seal has been recognised by the international Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and is now also looking forward to the international expansion of the seal.

„The international recognition by the GSTC Board was a very big and important milestone for us. We are very proud of this and are now optimistic about the international expansion of our GreenSign. Many large international hotel groups are already waiting for us and we are well prepared.”

Suzann Heinemann - Founder & Managing Director, GreenSign Institut GmbH to Hotelier.de
