Corporate Social Responsibility
We are very ecologically and sustainability-oriented at Hotel Schani Wien and take our responsibility towards the environment, our staff and guests very seriously. We strive to find all kinds of improvements that maintain a healthy environment worth living in for future generations.
A holder of the Austrian Ecolabel, we display our ecological footprint publicly and offer our guests high standards for criteria that have been key to our hotel’s success since we began:
Registration Number: 1007
The first coworking hotel in Austria, Hotel Schani Wien follows the five principles of coworking: openness, cooperation, community, accessibility and sustainability:
As a result, energy efficiency plays a major role on our premises. This was an issue we already worked on during the building phase of our hotel and for which we received the GreenBuilding Award from the European Commission. This award is presented to commercial buildings that have introduced energy saving measures, set an example for sustainable building and use up at least 25 percent less energy than recommended by standard norms. One of areas with the greatest potential for saving energy across the European Union is the heating and air-conditioning of commercial properties.
Thus, Hotel Schani Wien has used the latest induction technology produced by Trox for the hotel’s entire air-conditioning system. It allows guests to regulate the heating or air-conditioning of their rooms individually by warming or cooling room air that is sucked into the ventilation system, as required. This and other energy-related measures have helped us reduce energy consumption by up to 41 percent in comparison to conventional hotels.
Moreover, our rooms have no minibars and there are electric vehicle charging stations in the garage for ecological purposes. We have also cut paper use and waiting times using innovative technologies, such as mobile check-in, smartphone room keys and invoices sent per email and give our guests what is the most valuable good in the world – more time.
We will not clean your room every day because of our love for the environment. Instead, we will donate 1 euro to an ecological project carried out by turn to zero each time we do not make your room.
Do you still want your room to be cleaned? Just give us a heads up at the check-in or put the green sign on the door handle outside your room before 10:00 am. Our cleaning service is free of charge, of course.
This and further ideas have been introduced at Hotel Schani Wien. You can find our environmental concept at this link.
We are also the proud holders of the EU Ecolabel, in addition to the Austrian Ecolabel. This environmental quality seal is valid across the European market and showcases environmentally-friendly products and services provided by companies. We are the fifth hotel in Vienna to have received this quality seal.
EU Ecolabel: AT/025/105
We also place great weight on collaborating with partners who share and support our ideals and work practices relating to sustainability, such as our laundry partner Vienna Textil.
We have designed our hotel to be barrier-free so that everyone can access our premises. There are no barriers or restrictions in the entire hotel and our Guest Schanis will be there for you around the clock to answer your questions and assist you.
