The interior of planet earth holds enough energy to ensure the supply on its surface – and that in a clean and environmentally friendly fashion. Reason enough for Hotel Saratz to build its own geothermal energy production facility.
Hotel Saratz is thus making a contribution to maintaining the quality of air and life in the Engadine for future generations. The valley has an affinity with, and a long tradition, in the energy sector: it is the “dry chamber” (322 annual days of sun) and at the same time one of the water-wealthiest valleys in the Alps.

The careful use of resources is paramount at Hotel Saratz. Goals to reduce the consumption were set by measuring the consumption of resources such as electricity, water or fuel oil. Our measurements in detail:
|Measured variable||Definition||Actual value
|Target value 14/15||Deviation|
|Fuel consumption (cars)||Lt/LN||0.09||0.09||-.--|
|Fuel oil consumption||Lt/LN||3.26||2.50||-0.76|
To achieve these goals, processes and patterns have to be changed. Our efforts are formulated as follows:
The number of devices that are powered by electricity increases steadily. New technologies enable a lower consumption of electricity therefore we commit to keep up with the latest technologies available. We have set the goal to reduce power consumption by 0.42 Kwh per LN with following action-steps:
The consumption of fuel is kept within limit, however, a certain usage can still be avoided. Our efforts to achieve a reduction of 2-3% as follows:
The consumption of fuel oil has declined steadily in recent years. It can be reduced even more by small adjustments. Here are our goals for the fiscal year 2014/15:
Paper consumption has been greatly reduced in recent years, however, we are still trying to save even more. Our goals for the fiscal year 2014/15:
Water consumption of Hotel Saratz has been reduced since 2009 from 0.73 m3 per LN to 0.50 m3 in 2012. Now it is important to keep up this trend. Our efforts for the fiscal year 2014/15:
A lot of waste can be eliminated: by sorting, efficiently using and avoiding unnecessary packaging. Our goals are:
The quantity of kitchen waste is high. Improvements can be made with a consistent separation. The goals are:
Cardboard is separated from other waste and disposed free of charge. Nevertheless, a very large amount of cardboard accumulates each year. For the sake of the environment, we want to improve in this regard as well. Our action steps to reduce the cardboard waste:
We are moving more and more towards zero hazardous waste. The emphasis is placed on sustainability, renovation and reuse of furniture and the like.
