The winners are chosen on the basis of CO2 facts

Climate Award 2022 is awarded to the hotel and conference center with the lowest CO2 emissions per overnight guest. 

To ensure a correct and uniform assessment of the hotels' emissions, the Climate Score is used. The Climate Score has been developed in collaboration with leading climate experts, e.g. from DTU and Concito. 

Climate Score is based on documented emissions for the 8 focus areas that have the greatest impact on hotel operations' CO2 emissions. Based on the Climate Score, the jury assesses the individual hotels. The winners in each region and throughout Denmark are selected based on the lowest CO2 emissions.
