Swedish Hotel chain Scandic has cut its carbon dioxide emissions in half
Since 2007, the hotel chain has been working towards the goal of being completely carbon dioxide neutral by 2025. Now, four years later, Scandic has managed to halve their emissions and have thereby reached its sub target. What made this possible is the fact that Scandic now’s using solely renewable energy from wind and water for electricity in all the Nordic countries.
