Green is in our name. Being environmentally friendly for us is an attitude that lasts from the very beginning of the hotel concept all the way to lasting usage of buildings in the distant future.

Most of the work done is under the surface. Hundreds of details in the rooms, ease of maintenance, building controls aiming to preservation of natural resources, layout and durable materials are only few examples. We also use renewable energy and 0 % CO2 electricity.

We are proud to have been accepted to partner with ENO Environment Online school for environmental learning, UNESCO MAB Programme (Man & Biosphere), eCars - Now! and “Ilmastotori" Environmental Initiative with the city of Joensuu. We received Tripadvisor Greenleader Certification in 2016. Last but certainly not least we have received The Nordic Ecolabel Certification which guides our everyday work (renewed 11/2014).
