In accordance with the development of society, our nature will also be affected. We all have a responsibility, both as an individual, but also largely by business and with responsibility will also the ability and not least the willingness to help address the problem and ensure the future nature.
Middelfart Resort have our nature in mind, as we do our outmost to preserve natural resources - f.ex. usage of solar cells for heating the pool, remote heating system, energy saving light bulbs, automated electricity systems, water saving shower heads and faucets, recycling of paper, cardboard boxees, glass bottles, tin cans etc. In addition to a large degree of isolation in both main building and in the apartments, we yearly have an inspection and evaluation to find out if extra isolation and improvements of existing energy-efficient windows and doors can be made even better.
We are member of The Green Key branding for nature and resource preservation. At a holiday and conferencecenter a lot of chemicals is used on a daily basis - also including cleaning. This off course strain our nature - in anyway the chemicals are present or produced in - as checmicals are not a natural part of the environment. Middelfart Resort primary uses chemicals or cleaners marked by the Swan label or EU flower label, if possible, to reduce the emissions to the nature and at the same time in the best way protects the staff when using these chemicals and cleaners. We also prefer all of our suppliers to use same set of standards for preservation and primary use of Ecolabel products.
Our process in using less energy, heating and natural resource along with using products with brands of ecology, Fair trade and EcoLabel in all our primary and subsidary products are ongoing. We are currently undertaking a project of buying a portion of CO2 neutral energy through windpower. Our mandetory Environmental tax per house per night are used for local environmental & waste taxes and to support and maintain energy saving systems in the houses and main building.
