A place of encounter only makes sense to us on the basis of the operational principle of sustainability – and this operational principle only makes sense if it permeates all areas of our activity. That’s why we rely on 100% green electricity and up to 90% natural light. It’s why we primarily use regional ingredients in catering, and water- and energy-efficient equipment in all departments. And that is why we are not yet satisfied with what we have achieved so far, but are continuously developing our sustainable profile.
We not only recognize diversity in our society, but also define mutual respect and appreciation as an integral part of our corporate culture. We believe that fostering a culture of acceptance and trust releases potential in our team that benefits our partners, guests and society as a whole. And to underline that we are continuously pursuing this path, we have signed the Diversity Charter.
Placing the business interest in profits in an overall societal context is a core idea of our economic activities. The central pillars of our understanding of the common good economy (GWÖ) are human dignity, solidarity, sustainability, social justice, codetermination and transparency. And we don’t just proclaim, we act: be it through rent reductions for events geared to the common good, regular training for our team, the election of a mediator council to settle internal conflicts, or doing business according to defined sustainability criteria. We prepared our GWÖ balance sheet for this very purpose in September 2021 and were certified.
