Terme Snovik Sustainable Spa

Description

Terme Snovik is located 30 km from Ljubljana and is surrounded with forests and mountains. Green forests and pastures scattered along the narrow valley, leads the visitor to the place where several years ago healing water springs were discovered, used nowadays in the indoor and outdoor pools, for bathing and drinking or wellness services.

The owners had the idea of a green and sustainable Spa since 2008, when the Spa was awarded with the EU ECO Label. The commitment to sustainability is in different ways – environmentally and employees friendly, use of biological vegetables, spices and herbs from own garden and neighbouring villages, locally produced food and support of the local communities events. 100 % renewable energy is used for heating water and rooms (wood biomass, heat pump system, vacuum solar collectors). Optimized control pool equipment, energy management system in apartments and using 90% led lamps in apartments results into important energy savings. Energy costs were reduced with 35% in 5 years and carbon emissions with 155 tons per year. Comprehensive composting and recycling programs were established in order to reduce waste. Wastewater is treated locally and goes back to the nature.

Terme Snovik is also one of The 10 Slovenia Green Accommodations.
