CO2 reduction award for Wakeup Copenhagen near Kalvebod Brygge

Summer 2017

We are delighted to announce that our budget hotel Wakeup Copenhagen, Carsten Niebuhrs Gade, has received the prize for climate efforts “REALKREDIT DANMARKS KLOGE KVADRATMETERPRIS”. 

At Wakeup Copenhagen, we have made many efforts in reducing CO2 emissions, and we are proud that our hotel at Carsten Niebuhrs Gade has received the prize for climate efforts “REALKREDIT DANMARKS KLOGE KVADRATMETERPRIS”. To reduce emissions, we have implemented energy-saving central heating pumps, a ventilation system with heat recovery equipment, cooling and lights which are activated by the key card in the rooms, and energy-efficient windows with solar reflective coating. All of the hotel’s toilets have dual flush and water-saving showers. Rainwater is collected from the roofs and used to water the plants, and the large roof surface on floor nine has a green sedum coating, which grows over the roof like a ‘carpet of moss’. Sedum absorbs rainwater, so it does not run into the sewer. It insulates the building and is CO2 friendly.

Furthermore, our additional work with The Green Key at our hotel has contributed to today’s reception of the prize.
