Our responsibility, our sustainable commitment.

We are aware of our responsibility for the sustainable development of our operations. Together with you, we take a closer look at how ecologically compatible, resource-saving and environmentally friendly we currently operate. We strive to continuously improve with regard to meaningful sustainability so that our grandchildren can still travel and experience our destination in its fascinating beauty and diversity.

To the sustainable corporate culture.

Nature and countryside

Our teams work paper smart and use digital forms to best reduce our paper consumption and, if possible, eliminate it. Personalised room cleaning is available via our Hotel app so that the resources used harmonise with your needs. We want to make our guests’ time and stay in the Wellness- & Spa-Hotel as plastic-free as possible: laundry bags, slippers, drinking straws and other products are made of recyclable or compostable materials. Strict separation of waste and correct recycling is a matter of course for us.

Energy and climate

At the ERMITAGE, we generate 100% of our energy for heating and hot water from district heating. The Hotel further sets goals on lowering energy consumption and contributes to peak period optimisation. We use environmentally friendly cleaning agents to help reduce pollution.

People and culture

We sponsor various local associations. ERMITAGE has been the official Festival Hotel of the "Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy” since 2011. We engage actively with the tourism associations and work groups to protect local values and culture.

Workplace and collaborations

Where possible, we use regional, national and seasonal products. We prioritise local trade partners. The provision of balanced vegan and vegetarian culinary options is important to us. The spring water we offer our guests comes from Schönried. Our Team also lives at the ERMITAGE in 54 rooms. This accommodation is walking distance from the Hotel. Together with our partner Hotel BEATUS, we are currently training 17 apprentices, who are completing their education in local institutions. We also employ 10 people with residency permits F and S.
