Our environmental concept

Take a deep breath. Fresh, cool forest air, along with the quiet swooshing of the treetops on the peacefully located Warter Plateau, the aroma of lush green, the long view across the countryside. You are in the middle of a natural setting and, in addition, in a nature-characterized, sustainably ambitious conference location. Sustainability can be a big topic – or a very simple, active philosophy: creating wellbeing from natural sources, arranging relaxation and enjoyment with a long-term effect, dealing respectfully with the treasures of nature, and working in a socially sustainable environment. That is what we do at the DEKRA Congresshotel Wart: with a strictly certified ecological concept, with carefully chosen partners and offers, without compromising on comfort. The effect is measurable: in the efficiency and alignment of your event!

Our sustainability objectives

Protect the region
The lively and healthy nature and the inherent natural beauty of the northern Black Forest are the greatest of our region’s riches. We want to contribute to ensuring that this treasure is discovered again and again every day and is nevertheless well preserved.
Set New Standards
We want to show that MICE and ecology can go hand in hand and that sustainability can also be achieved in the conference hotel industry. Taking the idea further: As one of the few sustainably certified conference hotels, we simultaneously want to set impulses beyond the borders of our region, create networks, share experience, and gain new fellow campaigners.

Your contribution is important to us

Come by train
Coming by train is mostly more environmentally friendly than coming by car. Please contact us if you would like a transfer from the train station. You may receive prices for the shuttle to the hotel on request.

    • We are continuing to try to convert all light sources to an LED basis, aiming to do so by 2023 at the latest.
    • Use of heat pumps to operate the heating systems
    • Connection to a remote heat network fed completely by energy of a wood chip combined heat and power plant.
    • Use of motion detectors in all hotel areas in order to control the light sources more efficiently.
    • Conversion of the entire food area to energy-saving “regenerative cooking systems.”
    • No swimming pools or spa areas – only fitness rooms and saunas will provide for wellbeing at the location.
    • By 2023, we want to have a confirmed CO2 footprint made and operate on a largely climate-neutral basis.
