Only by changing together, through collective action, we can preserve this planet that we call our home.
That’s why we want to share some of the responsibilities we are taking at limehome:
environmental social governance
One of our biggest levers for sustainability lies in the energy that powers our properties. All of our limehomes are powered by 100% renewable energy produced from clean, natural resources like wind, solar & hydro that we retrieve directly from our green energy providers. That way we can light up our apartments emission-free and our beloved planet can stay as green as our power production.
A huge environmental impact on the hotel industry stems from the water, energy & chemicals consumption as a result of daily cleanings. During your stay we encourage you to request daily cleans only when necessary. This way we can reduce water consumption by more than 50% and at the same time decrease the amount of chemicals and energy used in cleaning tremendously.
Who knew keeping your towel on the rack could be so powerful?
what our directors say
Growing your company is all about priorities. When you’re convinced of the importance of a topic, you have to elevate it in decision-making above the short-term financial focus. The environment and our social impact are such priorities for us: Our ambition is to be a pioneer in the hospitality industry not just for our technological innovation but also for the way we “practice sustainability”.
Looking at the way preferences of consumers, employees and investors are changing towards favouring sustainable companies, investing in both environmental and social efforts is highly beneficial to our business too.

our sustainable in-room products
A regular hotel stay generates plenty of single-use plastic – a limehome stay does not! Our suite guest experience also includes not having to worry about unnecessary consumption of non-sustainable products. Here’s how we enable sustainable living:
CO2 construction savings
The buildings construction industry contributes 10% to total global energy-related CO₂ emissions.* That’s why we have decided to take on complex conversion projects, rather than having a sole focus on building new developments. This approach pays off in two ways: A less heavy toll on the environment as well as unique & interesting locations.
That way we are able to contribute to the “liveliness” of city centres and go even beyond the environmental aspect by avoiding empty buildings and fostering local demand through every customer we accommodate.
A few examples are our lovely apartments in Erfurt that regenerate a former heating plant into a limehome, the beautiful train station in Rottenburg, combining both modern and ancient architecture or our gorgeous renovation of a historic hotel in Baden-Baden. Have a look at these beautiful limehomes & convince yourself:
we host with heart
The current situation in Ukraine and the consequences of the war require help from all of us. Since many Ukrainian refugees do not have any place to stay, we try to help best by doing what we are good at – hosting with heart!
That’s why since March 2022 we made our apartments available free of charge to as many refugees as possible. We are also very happy to be part of #everybedhelps, an initiative of the serviced apartment industry to help tackle this crisis together.
Our hearts are with all affected – #designedtostay
we win as #oneteam
At limehome, it is important that the efforts around sustainability do not stop at our own doors, but extend to every employee and our interaction with the planet. That’s why we also set ourselves some goals in order to win as #oneteam:
We try to travel by rail, rather than air! When it comes to our internal IT, we often reuse and repair over rebuying. Our partnership with renewable energy providers extends even to our own environment and keeps us warm through fully eco-friendly energy in the office. Lastly, we are reducing daily commutes through our offer of fully remote and hybrid working models, enabling our team to work from home completely or partially.
