Creating a Sustainable Future
Since we are located in a pristine sanctuary of breathtaking beauty we have always been committed to sustainability in everything we do.
We are therefore proud to have hosted the historic G7 Summit 2015 in Schloss Elmau, which cleared the way for the Paris Climate Accord in 2015. Greenpeace had praised the summit with the message “Elmau Delivered” on full page ads published around the globe. In the last few years we have eliminated plastics, reduced waste and implemented numerous measures to reduce our carbon footprint.
In order to be able to consider sustainability in its entirety, the triple bottom line approach was developed as early as 2007. This approach describes that a sustainable balance between the three factors ecology, economy and social needs to be achieved in order to implement sustainability in the long term. Our approach is based on this methodology and is in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Schloss Elmau will be 100% climate neutral in Scope 1 (heating and electricity) already by the end of 2024.
