Scandic Hotels: “Sustainability was a key aspect for us”


Scandic Hotels is Scandinavias largest hotel chain and is known as a leader in sustainable hospitality. That is why Aura Light was a natural choice when it came to finding a new lighting partner.



Together with the recently acquired Rica Hotels, Scandic Hotels has 228 hotels and is represented in 8 countries. It will now change the lighting in all hotels and has chosen Aura Light to do it. The result? Excellent, energy efficient lighting in all of their hotels.

High standards for sustainability

When Scandic Hotels started the process of selecting a lighting partner, the objective was to find a flexible partner who could identify the right lighting solutions to match Scandic Hotel’s tough environmental and technical requirements.

Strong sales and service network

– We chose Aura Light because it is a flexible company with a strong sales and service network and a well-functioning distribution, especially in the Nordic countries. Sustainability was a key aspect for us when choosing a lighting supplier as well as a broad  range of products, especially different types of LED solutions. Aura Light fulfilled those requirements, says Inger Mattsson, Director of Sustainable Business, Scandic Hotels.

Maximized energy savings

Products to be installed include LED retrofit light sources, Long Life compact fluorescent light sources and LED down lights, amongst others. These will replace current lighting, and will help Scandic Hotels to maximize energy savings and reduce maintenance costs significantly.
– We are able to save energy and reduce maintenance costs while focusing on sustainability which is one of our core values. On top of that, we get high quality lighting in all of our hotels, says Inger Mattsson.
