A&O wants to contribute to environmentally friendly travel by giving school classes and teachers the opportunity to calculate and compare their own carbon footprint with the Co2mpass.
That is why in September 2011, we developed an own web-based tool in which you can fill in your travel components based on different aspects to measure your ecological footprint as well as to find environmentally-conscious alternatives!
We want to promote awareness of self-contained, climate-conscious behavior and thereby act as a motivator, not as a "party pooper".
Have a go with our CO2 calculator and check out your climate impact!

The past years A&O has instructed an independent institution called Viabono to check all our buildings on their CO2 emissions. This CO2 emission check allows a measurement of the climate impact on human activities. The average level of CO2 emissions of all A&O hostels is 8.96kg CO2/ overnight stay. This value in fact corresponds to the climate efficiency class B in the categories youth accommodations, being 3 times lower than in other two and three star hotels. The average value is 26 kg CO2/ overnight stay. We can achieve this climate friendly value by means of our simple and functional facilities plus our optimal use of space.
