We are already thinking about tomorrow and want to do our best to preserve the beauty of nature and the environment. Sustainability is an important topic for us and we are therefore constantly working on the integration of sustainable measure in our everyday life. With our sustainability concept, we are always questioning our processes, optimizing our procedures as well as our use of goods and do critically questioning our measures. Because the world of tomorrow is the future of our children.
For the love of nature
• Our employees live the Slow Food philosophy, get information about the products on a regular basis and are also allowed to do tastings.
• We reject plastic packaging as much as possible, resort to reusable systems or use products in cardboard boxes. The large number of domestic suppliers deliver exclusively in reusable packaging.
• Our printed materials such as invoices, morning mail and menues are printed on environmentally friendly paper.
• Our accounting department operates paperless for the most part. We are also happy to scan your invoice and mail it to you.
• We separate waste in all areas such as kitchen, service as well as hotel and have containers for glass, grease, foil and plastic, cardboard, organic waste and residual waste. Garden waste is disposed of separately.
The Landhaus Tanner
• The construction of our house was carried out by sustainable and regional construction companies and partners and use local materials.
• We produce 10 percent of our electricity ourselves via a powerful 30 kW photovoltaic system. The additional electricity we need, we get from the hydroelectric power of the Stadtwerke Salzburg. Furthermore, we have a solar system that preheats the domestic water. The heating and hot water is produced by our modern CO2-neutral pellet heating system. The pellets used are sourced exclusively from certified domestic suppliers. High-quality decalcification systems ensure low-loss distribution to the whole building.
Stay overnight sustainably
• We have refillable soap dispensers in the rooms to avoid small packaging units. We do not dispense with “amenities” such as individually packaged cotton pads, nail files, etc., but offer them loose in jars unpackaged. Bath slippers are made of natural linen and are no longer wrapped but packed with a paper band.
• In the guest rooms we separate paper waste and residual waste. In addition, there is a recycling station in our lounge. Guests can personally separate glass, paper and plastic waste there directly.
Regional sustainable food
• We avoid individual plastic packaging, such as portioned pieces of butter, for reasons of sustainability. Therefore, we have jam, honey, butter, etc. at the buffet for self-portioning.
• Due to our Slow Food membership and the continuous organic certification since 2015, we pay a lot of attention to local, regional and seasonal products. Only seafood and saltwater fish are purchased as fresh products.
• We also pay attention to organic as well as regional suppliers for beverages.
• We have expanded our high share of direct producers: poultry (chicken, turkey, duck, but also partly whole pigs) come from Biohof Kettenberger from Tittmoning. Straw pork, veal, whole lambs and (organic) beef from Landmetzgerei Gassner from Amerang/Chiemgau. Annually also a whole organic ox from Franz Murr, Waging. Game (roe deer, chamois, fallow deer) from local hunters Martin Göstl from Feichten and Martin Stief, Ruhpolding. Trout, char, catfish and sturgeon from Weiherhaus Allgeier, Taching am See. Chiemsee fish from Thomafischer Wallner, Chieming.
• In our garden, we have our own have raised beds with herbs as well as a fruit orchard with unsprayed apple trees, which are of course processed in the kitchen in the now still moderate yield.
• Grain products are processed by Demeter farmer Franz Obermeier from Tengling.
• Our wine assortment with approx. 100 positions comes from winegrowers, partly also BIO, Austria and Italy. We do not serve overseas wines. Beers, mineral water and juices are sourced regionally.
