Our 5 steps towards environmental sustainability

Reduce, reuse and recycle

At Hotel Slon, we are firmly committed to a sustainable business strategy based on a respectful attitude towards the environment, our employees and the community.

Our green policy is based on the “reduce, reuse and recycle” motto.


Sustainable development shapes our food procurement and processing practices, the entire facility maintenance protocol and the well-being of our guests.

At the same time, we remain involved in the Ljubljana community, which is part of the identity of our hotel.


Waste reduction

  • Recycling bins are available to guests all throughout the hotel and waste is recycled
  • We strive to minimize the use of plastic by encouraging guests to drink Ljubljana’s excellent tap water
  • We replaced bottled water in guest rooms, restaurant and conference centre with our own Hotel Slon bottles that guests can reuse during their stay and refill with tap water.
  • Bio-degradable to-go packaging for foods & beverages as well as eco-friendly catering supplies are being introduced
  • We purchase goods with less packaging and practice purchasing optimization with constant monitoring of critical stocks
  • Food waste policies are in place that include education, food waste prevention, reduction, recycling and disposal. We regularly weigh and analyze the amount of organic waste on a monthly basis in the effort to minimize it as much as possible


 Water reduction

  • Guests have the option of reusing towels
  • Guests can opt-out of daily cleaning service
  • We regularly monitor water consumption and tap service 


 Practices to save energy

  • All rooms are equipped with double-glazed windows and sensors that interrupt heating/cooling by detecting open windows
  • We are regularly checking refrigeration units sealing to prevent greenhouse gas losses, controlling room temperatures and replacing air conditioner filters and room convectors
  • We highlight the importance of reduced linen & towel change frequency to use less energy and water


 Supporting the community

  • Our chefs select locally sourced and seasonal produce of highest quality as much as possible. With this goal in mind, we’ve joined Ljubljana’s Green Supply Chains initiative. Our efforts are resulting in sustainable effects, shorter supply chains and reduced carbon footprints while at the same time boosting the local small economy
  • We promote locally owned restaurants, activities and services in Ljubljana


 Reducing our impact on the environment

  • Guests are encouraged to reduce their ecological footprint by reusing their linens and towels, maintaining a recommended room temperature and minimizing waste
  • Suppliers and partners that share the “Fair Trade” ethics and approaches to sustainability are preferred
  • We are replacing all printed brochures in guest rooms with an online Guest Directory
  • Our thermally insulated facade reduces energy consumption
  • Grease traps are installed on kitchen wastewater
