January 21, 2015 Bradley Cox

Hamburg-based management consultancy LCI Lodging Concepts Individual GmbH has successfully passed Green Globe certification. Since 2014, the company has carried this seal of approval, which is among the world’s leading sustainability programs for the responsible management of travel and tourism companies.

The consulting activities of LCI Lodging Concepts Individual include the areas of hotel market analysis and hotel design specifically in small and medium-sized cities.
LCI Lodging Concepts Individual’s goal is to promote tourism growth through individual hotel concepts creating added value for regions outside of urban centers.

The company specialises in creating sustainable, energy-efficient and resource-saving projects. Relevant market data is collected and evaluated holistically by incorporating regional characteristics. And each property is considered individually with solutions aligned exactly to its location profile.

Markus Gretenkord, Managing Director of LCI Lodging Concepts Individual said, “I view the responsible use of natural resources in today’s hotel operations as indispensable. In the future, Green Globe properties and companies, including my own, will be a necessary requirement in fulfilling an obligation towards sustainable practices.”

Green Globe’s international standard is based on more than 300 indicators covering energy management, water and land use as well as social and cultural indicators. Green Globe adheres to ISO 19011 guidelines and employs independent auditors to ensure their rigorous criteria are met.

LCI Lodging Concepts Individual received a compliance score of 93% that is well over and above the necessary passing requirement of 50%. The high score was a unique achievement by the owner- managed company.

As part of its social and environmental responsibility the company supports PlastiControl, an independent organization that educates consumers about marine pollution and issues concerned with plastic waste and its effects. Also, Mr Gretenkord regularly contributes to various marketing and tourism boards and affiliated organizations in Hamburg to exchange and gain knowledge regarding possible future ventures.
