We play our part in climate protection 

  • We pursue an ecological strategy in line with our common responsibility for creation.
  • The design and energy supply of our establishment allows us to handle resources with an environmentally friendly and sustainable approach.
  • When choosing foods, we ensure that we opt for regional and fair trade products, which we prepare in an environmentally friendly and healthy way.
  • We share the belief that more cost-intensive measures in the short term allow us to achieve long-term benefits and cost savings, above all for future generations.
