The Copenhagen Admiral Hotel honours – and actively invests in – the internationally recognised CSR principles that include human rights, employee rights and the improvement of environmental and climatic conditions.
Environmental consciousness is fundamental to the thinking of the Copenhagen Admiral Hotel: for several decades, we have persistently worked for – and contributed to – reducing our carbon footprint. Furthermore, we will continue to exercise a responsible policy and actively encourage our employees, our suppliers and our guests to treat the environment with due respect.
Our primary strategy is to ensure that our use of energy and that the effect on the environment of our daily operations is limited to the best of our ability. To achieve this, we are always looking to improve our controls and our work processes as well as refining our products and services to minimise waste.
It is equally important that our suppliers have – and demonstrate – the same values as ours: minimising packaging materials and making use of approved, environmentally friendly products in their own production.
The Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is a member of the internationally recognised organisation, Green Key, whose objective is to improve awareness of the environment within the hotel industry. Each year the organisation sets a number of criteria for its members, which we have committed ourselves to work for, over and above our own goals.
We are very goal-oriented with regard to improving the working environment for our employees: to this end, we have set up the Copenhagen Admiral Hotel’s Working Environment Forum. As a member of the Danish hotel industry organisation, HORESTA, we are committed to meeting all criteria affecting salary conditions, benefits and employment conditions. Furthermore, we must abide by the UN convention regarding economic, social and cultural rights.
We endeavour at all times to be a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural place of work where we treat all employees with respect, fairly and with equal rights, to enable them to attain their full potential.
We endeavour to ensure that our employees have every opportunity to develop and improve their capabilities within their particular field, with respect for our primary goals and visions for the future.
Job-satisfaction and social participation are important tenets and we make every effort to be a sound, healthy workplace for all of our employees.
