Certificate Umweltpakt Bayern

Since 1997, the Bavarian government grants the “Bavarian environmental seal for hospitality” to environmentally conscious sustainable hotels and catering establishments. The environmental seal (the only public environmental certification for the hospitality sector in Germany) has become a trademark for environmental protection.

The label has been active until 2017. Certified hotels and restaurants now can join the "Umweltpakt Bayern".  Members use a online selfcheck system and need to achieve 100 points to be allowed to use the "Umweltpakt Bayern" logo.
