Responsible environmental management has been a central element of Radisson Blu's commitment to sustainability for many years.
Responsible Business is also a matter close to the heart of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Frankfurt. For example, the hotel provides charging stations for vehicles. Everything in the sense of responsible and conscious driving, the costs are even included in the overnight package.
Radisson Blu and E.ON Sign Partnership for Low-Emission HotelNow, however, one step further was taken. Together with E.ON, Radisson Blu wants to set new standards in terms of sustainability within the hotel industry. Thanks to a highly innovative decentralized solution, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Frankfurt will generate clean energy itself in the future. For this purpose, E.ON built a fuel cell that has a decisive advantage over conventional power generation systems: virtually no pollutants such as nitrogen or fine dust are produced during the combustion-free process, which generates electricity and heat. By deploying fuel cell technology, a unique project in Europe, the Radisson Blu Hotel can generate the majority of the energy needed for hotel operations.
