We are committed to use clean renewable energy. Our electricity is generated with 100% hydroelectric power. We aim to reduce our power consumption by choosing energy efficient solutions in our every day life. To name a few, we use LED lamps, our rooms have motion detector lights, our premises and devices are modern and our meeting rooms have carbon dioxide sensors to regulate the ventilation.
We follow and report our food waste on a monthly basis. The reported data helps us to recognise where we have room for improvement. To give an concrete example of our operations, we weight and report all our organic waste every day.
Last year we switched our plastic laundry bags to paper versions. We offer to our guests ecofriendly amenities from Guest Comfort. The amenities are made of sustainable and biodegradable materials. Read more about Guest Comfort here.
Our bathrooms are equipped with Danish I Love Eco Essentials microplasticfree bath amenities. By having bigger-size cosmetics bottles, we will generate less waste in terms of plastic and half-empty bottles. Read more about I Love Eco Essentials and their sustainability here.

At Hotel U14 we have an open and instructive working environment where we help and encourage each other to grow. We invite trainees to our community to learn all about hotel industry and to grow professionally with us.
We participate yearly to Joulupuu Association Christmas gift fundraising and offer our guests and employees the chance to donate a gift for kids and adolescence who might not get gifts otherwise.
