SUSTAINABILITY ZEITGEIST MEANS ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

DOING GOOD WHILE SLEEPING

GOING GREEN

Because environmental protection is important to us, we want to help our guests to do something beneficial even in their sleep. A good feeling? No, a great one!

„Because Zeitgeist means caring for our environment“
GERALD KOLM, CEO

GREEN ELECTRICITY
The Zeitgeist Vienna is powered exclusively by green electricity generated by hydroelectric power stations in Vorarlberg.

BEN LINEN, TABLE LINEN & CO
At our partner laundries, we pay attention to sustainable conditions, renewable energy sources & low CO2 emissions.

LAUNDRY SERVICE
Clothes are cleaned with water-saving methods and environmentally friendly detergents. Also the transport of the cleaned clothes is done in fabric bags, instead of plastic bags.

PRINT PRODUCTS
Our print products are printed by an Austrian company who is awarded with the Austrian eco-label. They use recycled paper and eco-friendly colours. We also donate the printer catridges from our back office areas to the RED NOSES as part of their Recycling4smile initiative.

CHRISTMAS GIFT: DOING GOOD
Instead of investing in the 10th Christmans gift, we prefer to use our possibilities and donate annually to charitable organizations and initiatives. In the last years, the Zeitgeist-Santa has supported, among others, Momo – Vienna’s mobile children’s hospice and the Lower Austria relief organisation “Hilfswerk Niederösterreich” with its “Essen auf Rädern” initiative.

PUBLIC ACCESSIBILITY
Arriving without leaving a big ecological footprint? Thanks to our top location only 300 m from the main train station, you can reach your destination quickly by train, bus, tram or underground. It is also only 15 minutes by train from the airport to the main station.

ZEITGEIST BIKES
You want to explore the city and enjoy the beautiful weather at the same time? Rent one of our Zeitgeist bikes for free and do something good not only for the environment, but also for your health.

eSCOOTER
Even more comfortable than riding a bike? Try our eScooters! Ask our team the the reception for more infos.

eGAS STATIONS
Recharge your eCar or Tesla for free at the charging stations in the hotel’s own garage.

NATURAL MATERIALS
We attach great importance to natural materials instead of plastic & co. Thus even our pens are made of wood and paper.

ROOM CLEANING
If you, as our guest, skip housekeeping service for one day, you will receive a € 5,- voucher for our restaurant-café-bar Pergola. On the one hand, it helps us to save cleaning agents, but also saves resources in the form of water and detergents for your towels in the laundry shop.

TOILET PAPER
Even our toilet paper is produced without chemicals and consists of 100% waste paper. This makes it completely degradable and leaves no toxic traces in the waste water.

DIGITAL INSTEAD OF PAPER WASTE
Instead ot printing guest folders for the rooms we provide all information directly on our Wifi landing page or available at any time at zgv.at.

CARE PRODUCTS
Our Absolute NORDIC Skincare products are 97% biodegradable. They are made from renewable and plant-based materials, while ingredients that are slow to biodegrade have been kept to a minimum.

WATER-SAVING SHOWER SYSTEMS
Doing good while sleeping – but also while showering. All our rooms are equipped with water-saving shower systems. This enables our guests to enjoy our wellness showers without any loss of comfort and at the same time reduce their water consumption by 50%.

LED LIGHTING
By using LED lighting instead of regular light bulbs in the rooms we save electricity.

REGIONAL PRODUCTS
The motto for our breakfast buffet is “organic, regional & home-made”! Browse through our wide range of products yourself.

ORGANIC COFFEE & TEA

In addition to a selection of organic teas, our guests also enjoy FAIRTRADE coffee – because it is not only taste that matters, but also fair conditions for our producers.

ORGANIC MILK FROM SALZBURG

ORGANIC FREE-RANGE EGGS (CODE 0) FROM LOWER AUSTRIA

VERIVAL ORGANIC MUESLI FROM TYROL

HOME-MADE KAISERSCHMARRN & CAKE

MEAT & SAUSAGES
We get our meat and sausage products from the butchery Windisch from Lower Austria. Even the delivery is done without the use of plastic wrapping – instead wax & clay packaging serve as an ecologically valuable alternative.

ORGANIC BREAD FROM VIENNA

JAM FROM TYROL

COMB HONEY FROM CARINTHIA

FRESHLY PREPARED
We prepare the dishes for our restaurant as fresh as possible and upon your order. Hence we have already been able to reduce our cooling possibilities by one 1/5 and the use of plastic (e.g. vacuum packaging) by 2.5 kg / month.

HOME-MADE INSTEAD OF PRE-PACKAGED
Instead of individually pre-packaged biscuits, we serve the coffees at our restaurant Pergola with home-made mini cakes without artificial ingredients.

FOOD DELIVERY
It goes without saying that we only use fresh and high-quality food in our kitchen and on the table. These foods are delivered CO2-neutral – by a certified supplier who, among other things, plants around 4,000 trees a year.

STRAWS
Enjoy cool drinks without a guilty conscience. Our straws are made of paper and are therefore completely biodegradable. Cheers!

USED COOKING OIL DISPOSAL
Our used cooking oil is processed into sustainable biodiesel.

HANDMADE 
Our burger buns are handmade and consist of regional and organic ingredients only.

LOCAL MEAT
Here you can enjoy your Schnitzel without hesitation! We order our Schitzel meat directly from butcher Eder in Vienna.

GOING GREEN TRAININGS
We support a conscious and responsible treatment of food. Therefore we give our emloyees the opportunity to attend regular trainings in order to be informed about the origin and production processes of our products.

QUALITY & DESIGN AS THE KEY TO SUSTAINABILITY
Our seminar & event furniture from Wilkhahn are long-lasting quality products that are manufactured in an energy-efficient manner and without the use of heavy metals. Thanks to their low-emission production, our super-comfortable armchairs and tables are not only designed for marathon meetings, but are also certified with the GREENGUARD Gold standard. Wilkhahn is also FSC-certified.

PERFECT CONNECTION
Located next to Vienna Central Station you can find perfect connections to the Vienna underground, tram and bus network, offering a stress-free public journey. If you still want to travel by car, there are four e-filling stations in the hotel’s own garage available free of charge.

DIGITAL INSTEAD OF ANALOG
In our seminar rooms 1, 4 and 6, the XL displays also serve as a digital, writable whiteboard. The notes discussed in the meeting can be digitally transmitted – this in turn saves time and paper.

NATURAL MATERIALS
In addition to the high-quality furnishings, the focus in MEZZANIN Meetings & Events was set on the use of natural materials. Green walls also create a homely atmosphere and ensure a positive indoor climate.
