Best practices

A lot has changed since the initial ibex fairstay certification

Located in the famous Swiss region of the Grison Alps, the Valbella Inn hotel in Lenzerheide is a real pioneer for sustainability. In 2015, the company was audited by ibex fairstay for the first time and awarded the SILVER level. A lot has changed since then. The Vogt Family has run the four-star superior hotel with passion already, but by certifying the hotel they are fully committed to live up to their responsibility and to illuminate everything.

Today, the management sets a good example and encouraged employees and guests alike to engage in the issue of sustainability. For instance, single-use slippers were banned, thus preventing 20,000 disposable shoes from ending up in the trash can every year. Also, their deep commitment to nature and its resources impressions. Following the “Nose to Tail” philosophy, a Valbella Bio Beef was launched, together with a neighboring farmer. The hotel’s restaurant then uses the whole animal and creates special “nose to tail” menus. Plastic items have nearly disappeared from Valbella Inn. With a sensitized eye on daily items such as plastic-packed magazines, peppers, coffee caps and much more, they consciously change a product or make the supplier aware of it.A continuous improvement process is in place. Even a self-created Columbus Award honors employee who contribute a good idea for improved work processes, attracting new guests or living around the hotel. By the recertification in the year 2018, the Valbella Inn was awarded the ibex fairstay level GOLD!
