TUI Blue reduces the carbon footprint of its hotels

Sustainability at TUI Blue

Climate protection is a key issue around the globe. Renewable energies can contribute substantially to the development of a climate solution. TUI Blue therefore targets to reduce carbon emissions per guest night by 20 per cent.

The TUI Blue Fleesensee resort in Germany’s Mecklenburg Lake District has 100 per cent of its energy needs generated from renewables. It additionally uses solar systems to generate power on site. Its goal is to continually reduce the consumption of electricity. This can be achieved through appropriate measures including energy-efficient LED lighting in nearly all hotel areas and continuous maintenance of the systems. The hotel supports further climate-friendly projects run in the region. In the framework of the “Climate Forest” campaign, for instance, trees were planted in order to offset carbon activities.

TUI Blue Fleesensee has held the Travelife label for many years. Hotels awarded such a sustainability certification recognised by the GSTC* use 23 per cent more renewable energies. Sustainably managed hotels also deliver a high customer satisfaction level. Hoteliers committing to sustainability therefore stand to achieve a twofold benefit. With the “Sustainable Blue” sustainability initiative, the TUI Blue hotel brand supports TUI Group’s sustainability strategy.
