Information on energy efficiency and sustainability
Responsible and energy-saving
Central points of our energy concept
Every Christmas Garden is individual, and the power consumption varies accordingly. The average energy consumption for the lighting installations is roughly equivalent to the amount of electricity needed to start up a standard coffee filter machine once, or to iron for 16 minutes, for example.
The lighting design as well as the pathway lighting consist of 90 percent LEDs, which results in an 80 percent energy saving compared to conventional light sources. As a matter of principle, the lowest necessary wattage is selected for the application. In addition, the traditional natural ice rinks, which are very popular with the public, were not included. The lighting of the circuit is reduced to a safety-relevant minimum. In addition, we have optimized our work processes so that it now only takes 30 minutes to ramp up the lighting installations.
From the catering partners to the wood suppliers for the fire bowls to the means of transport for the employees - a large part of all energy-relevant aspects could be optimized in terms of sustainability. This includes transportation with e-golf carts, the use of mulled wine dispensers with continuous flow heaters, the largely compostable packaging of the food, and the deposit system for glasses and cups with an on-site dishwashing service. The electricity used is predominantly obtained as green electricity from sustainable energy sources and (with a few exceptions) the use of generators is dispensed with.
