Our green journey

At Kurhotel Skodsborg, we are aware that sustainable transformation takes time, that it is a learning process and that there will always be a need for optimization. With our beautiful location between forest and water, nature has always been a big part of our DNA and the cornerstone of Dr. Carl Ottosen’s values of physical and mental health.


We try to consider sustainability in all parts of the hotel’s cycles and have made a decision to take a more focused approach to our responsibility and actively contribute to improving the wellness culture. For ourselves, our guests and the climate.

Our laundry is eco-certified and uses only organic products and energy-saving wash programs.

We collect rainwater and use it to water our plants and vegetable garden.

The water we serve is fresh and clean tap water, and we always recommend drinking tap water if possible. Instead of bottled water, we offer a reusable sugarcane water bottle in our Spashop that can be refilled again and again.

The use of single-use plastics such as product packaging is significantly reduced and our food is delivered in reusable containers.

We sort waste into 12 categories and try to stay ahead of the county’s requirements. This year, among other things, we have implemented a container for textiles.
To avoid food waste, we convert our biowaste into biogas in collaboration with BioTrans.

We weigh our leftovers so we can regulate and adjust portions and purchases as needed.

More than 30% of the food we serve is organic and sourced from local Danish producers wherever possible.

The fish we serve is MSC certified, which means it is caught by a certified sustainable fishery, is not endangered and is only caught in quantities that allow the stock to remain healthy and productive.


Green Restaurant Bronze

In May 2022, our restaurant received the Green Keys Green Restaurant – Bronze label, which in addition to focusing on the use of organic food and cleaning products, also requires waste sorting, food waste management and minimized water consumption.

Organic food label Bronze

Since 2021, our restaurant has been certified with the Danish Ø-label, bronze level. The level (basic, bronze, silver or gold) is determined by the percentage of organic food the restaurant uses. Currently, Brasserie Carl uses over 34% organic ingredients, and we are working hard to get even better.

Green Key

Green Key is the international environmental certificate for the tourism industry, awarded to companies that make a special effort to take care of the environment. Kurhotel Skodsborg has been a Green Key hotel since 2008, which means that we are committed to complying with the stringent environmental requirements and continuously implement environmental improvements.
