Sustainability, climate and environment

Bjørback AS and the Rorbuanlegget Svolvær Havn are actively concerned with minimizing our environmental footprint, and not contributing to the destruction of nature both locally, nationally and internationally. Lofoten is the scene of one of the world’s most important and sustainable sea areas for fishing. Centuries of Lofoten fishing have made Lofoten what it is today, and we will do our utmost to help preserve this

Cooperation with leading suppliers

We use products from Ecolab and Nor-Tekstil, two leading suppliers of sustainable products and services to the hotel industry.

Ecolab offers innovative solutions for cleaning and hygiene that reduce water consumption, energy consumption and waste.

Nor-Tekstil supplies high-quality textiles, processed at swan-labeled vaskerier. Minimal water consumption and where detergents are used which should have the least possible impact on the environment.

Saving water and energy​

We have installed energy-saving showers in all rooms to reduce water consumption. This saves both water and energy, and contributes to a more sustainable operation.

To minimize water and chemical consumption, we only clean the rooms on departure. If you want to have towels and bed linen changed more often or need cleaning of your room during your stay, please contact our service-office.

Did you know that over 50% of energy use in Norway comes from renewable sources (2022).

Electric cars

Our employees use electric cars. This reduces emissions of greenhouse gases, saves energy, and contributes to a better local environment.

We invite you to contribute​

We want our guests to participate in our ongoing work and commitment to increased sustainability. You can for example contribute by:

  • Take shorter showers.
  • Hang towels to dry instead of sending them to wash.
  • Turn off the lights when you leave the room.
  • Deposit your empty plastic bottles and aluminum cans (example: mineral water etc) in vending machines in grocery stores. These are sent for recycling.
  • Use public transport when traveling in Lofoten.

Did you know that aluminum can be recycled 100%?

Together we can make a difference!​
