The best version of ourselves

In a world that is constantly changing and demanding more and more sustainability, we have an obligation not only to keep up, but also to help set the direction. Especially as one of the leading players in the Danish hotel industry.

It's a never-ending journey, partly because external demands and standards are constantly sharpened and increased, and partly because we ourselves are getting more skillful at doing things better, smarter and more efficiently.

Carbon neutral in the entire value chain

In 2023, we committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as an important part of our plan to reduce our total climate footprint and achieve carbon neutrality in our own operations by 2030 and in the entire value chain by 2040. It's ambitious, we know. But we believe that an ambitious plan is a breeding ground for creative ideas and innovative solutions that turn into concrete and useful actions.

Comwell Hotels is also a workplace with a focus on diversity, all working together to ensure a sustainable future. We make room for everyone - and every day we develop and educate our employees both professionally and personally, for instance through our Student Academy and Green Chef programme.

Discover more about how we continue our journey to become the best version of ourselves while setting the bar high for us and the rest of the industry.

All of Comwell's Danish hotels have the Organic Food Label in bronze, which means
that 30-60% of all food and beverages purchased are organic.

Green Key

All of Comwell's Danish hotels are certified according to the international Green Key ecolabelling scheme, which is the international ecolabel of the tourism industry. This means that Comwell fulfils a number of environmental requirements within environmental management, energy, waste, cleaning, food, indoor climate and CSR.


All of Comwell's hotels in Denmark are part of the REFOOD scheme, where organic waste and frying oil are collected and recycled, as well as working with efficient solutions for waste management.

"Age is our workforce"

As retirement approaches, questions about the future, opportunities and limitations of working life arise for many. At Comwell, however, age is no obstacle to having career dreams late in life - or following them. Not even for the three waiters, 65-year-old Jørgen, 60-year-old student Ole or 58-year-old Helge.
