MULTIPLE AWARD-WINNING SUSTAINABILITY AT THE POSTHOTEL ACHENKIRCH
Sustainability is extremely important here at the Posthotel: An awareness of people and nature, the consequent value of regionality as well as attention to a good and respectful coexistence: this is the philosophy of the 5-star hotel in Achenkirch on Lake Achensee. The first quarter of 2018 saw the Posthotel receive two awards for its conscious orientation: A seal of quality for workplace health promotion and an accolade for competency in the area of climate protection.
Thumps up for Posthotel employees
Whether employer of the year, outstanding training or an award for being a family-friendly business, at the Posthotel Achenkirch employees have always been a top priority. And it’s another thumbs up this year! Only businesses and projects that meet the quality criteria of the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion receive the corresponding seal of quality for 2018 to 2020 – and the Posthotel Achenkirch is one of them. In addition to healthy food in the workplace, all hotel employees have access to a company doctor and the opportunity to undertake training. The hotel’s new gym
A 5-star hotel with an appreciation for climate protection
According to the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, the Posthotel Achenkirch Karl Reiter GmbH is making a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. With an electric Tesla, 2 electric motorbikes, a photovoltaic facility and other climate-friendly measures, the Posthotel is able to orient its mobility management as part of ‘klimaaktiv’, Austria’s climate protection initiative.
Sustainable consciousness a key part of everyday life
Awards are great: they encourage and are an honour for all those involved. However, the Posthotel does not focus on winning as many awards as possible but rather on living out its own values and firmly integrating them into everyday life. For example, love and passion goes into its own pasture to produce milk, butter and meat, while bread is freshly baked each day in the hotel’s own bread oven. Distances should be minimised and structures clear while focussing on common objectives. Anyone who visits the Posthotel has the true sense that nature has been brought indoors. The focus here is on health and sustainability for guests, employees, nature and the business. It is precisely this that creates the unique feel-good atmosphere here at the Posthotel.
Mindfulness and relaxation amidst pure nature
The philosophy is clearly seen each time you set foot in the Posthotel, and there are two special packages available for anyone wanting their stay to be about coexistence of the hotel and nature. The Posthotel Mind & Soul Spa Retreat focuses on teaching mindfulness and discovering new energy. The Romance, Nature & Pure Relaxation package is also great for leaving everyday worries behind – simply relax with a clear conscience!
