We believe in a sustainable future
We believe that we must all contribute to a sustainable future. That is why we are working on several initiatives aimed at securing positive change that is beneficial for the environment, from smaller things such as choosing only organic items for our minibar as well as organic linen and bed sheets, to several larger scale initiatives as listed below.
Coco Hotel is covered by green energy. We are owned by Copenhagen Food Collective (Cofoco), a Copenhagen based restaurant and hotel collective. In 2017, Cofoco established a 6 hectare large solar energy farm, an area equivalent to nine football fields, in Nees in the northwestern part of Jutland. The solar panels generate such a large amount of sustainable energy that, in addition to powering Coco Hotel and Cofoco's 16 restaurants, Cofocos solar farm is also supplying solar energy to the national energy grid.

Book your stay - plant a tree
We want to make a positive difference in the world. That is why we donate trees on behalf of our guests, through our partner Eden Reforestation Projects. At more than 45 different project sites in Kenya, we support the produce, planting, growing and protecting of trees, for the benefit of the climate, the environment and the local communities.
When you book your stay through our website, we donate one tree per night you stay with us. This means that by choosing to book directly with us, you can CO2 compensate your stay, while supporting local communities around Kenya and creating a positive impact on the wildlife and ecosystem in the project areas.
With your help, we expect to donate more than 33.000 trees within our first year of partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects.
To this date, Eden Reforestation Projects has planted and protected over 50 million trees in Kenya and employs more than 1050 people with fair wages at the project sites. To learn more about their work, please go explore their website.
