The Well is committed to taking social responsibility. We are aware of our role and in our daily operations, we focus on sustainability goals related to the environment, health, and equality. This means a lot to us and our employees - and we know it means a lot to our guests.
Water and energy are part of our identity, and The Well facilities require large amounts of water and electricity, which in themselves are not sustainable. We are committed to preserving nature, and one of our most important goals is to reduce our own environmental footprint as much as possible. We do this through a highly modern system that recycles both water and heat. Pool and building heating is done through geothermal energy, in addition to which we recycle water and its heat. Examples of measures include:
All available roof space is covered with solar panels. All pools are required to circulate a certain amount of water for health and safety reasons - the norm being that this should run off into the drain. At The Well, we have an advanced purification and recycling system that ensures all circulated water has a use, and 70% of this water returns to the facility again after thorough purification. This saves up to 50,000 liters of water every day.
Shower water goes down the drain and is not reused - this is for strict hygiene reasons. The Well recovers heat from this water, resulting in a reduction of up to 100 kW per hour.
In the first few years, we noticed that many guests forgot to turn off the showers, and as a result, we installed automated showers that save us water.
We also strive for sustainability in our food and other products, in the following ways:
We have created a new swimwear collection made of 82% recycled materials. Locally sourced food in season. Prioritizing organic food. Continuously focusing on reducing plastic in all aspects of our operations. In addition, we now offer 100% plant-based food in our Naturli' Wellness Lounge - which is both healthy and environmentally friendly.
The Well is here to give people a better life, and through the elements of nature, we create health-promoting experiences. The combination of water, cold, and heat contributes to increased blood circulation, which in turn can contribute to increased immune defense. Regular visits to us can therefore have a positive effect on your physical health. For many, The Well is also a haven where you can take time to relax and find peace - and we hope that a visit to us can lower the stress levels of our guests and help them find balance in a busy everyday life.
The Well is meant to be a source of health-promoting wellness. Therefore, we always start with health when developing new concepts, so that they can contribute to improving our guests' physical and mental health.
Equality and tolerance
Equality and tolerance are our third sustainability goal. At The Well, you are free to just be - as you were created. Therefore, all kinds of people are welcome here.
The Well is committed to diversity, and we are very proud to be a multicultural, multilingual, and rainbow-colored organization.
