Triple bottom line

Sleep with your conscience clear

When you buy food in the grocery store, the product must have a declaration listing the ingredients. A product declaration is an assurance that obliges the producers, and provides certainty to consumers. We want to give you the same peace of mind when buying hotel experiences from us. Therefore, we report on the triple bottom line: People, Planet & Profit. We want to be evaluated on all three levels. Completely transparent. That way you can sleep with a clear conscience.

EAT

Help us to eat the world into a better place

Nordic Choice Hotels wants to make it easy to eat good food with a good conscience. Setting goals is easy. Finding solutions is far more difficult. The path to the food plate is full of hurdles. Is there food that tastes good, but is also healthy and environmentally friendly? Since 2013, Nordic Choice Hotels has been a proud sponsor of the EAT Stockholm Food Forum, a global initiative established by the Stordalen Foundation and Stockholm Resilience Centre. We have established Local EAT Award together with NHO and Företagarna. We want to recognise great entrepreneurs in food, health and sustainability.

2016

Tail winds

2016 was a record year for Nordic Choice Hotels. We successfully won several key contracts, such as Clarion Hotel Bjørvika in Oslo, Comfort Hotel Arlanda Airport in Stockholm and an impressive three new hotel projects in Copenhagen: Posthuset, Clarion Hotel and Comfort Hotel at Copenhagen Airport. Nordic Choice Hotels also started a new chapter with the opening of Clarion Hotel Helsinki and Clarion Hotel Helsinki Airport. Apart from delivering our best result ever, Nordic Choice Hotels made a slam dunk at the annual Grand Travel Award and brought home prizes for the Best Hotel Chain in Norway, Sweden and the Nordic countries. You can view the highlights from 2016 in this short video. Enjoy!
