We see it as our social obligation, also towards future generations, to use the resources available to us carefully and consciously. Our company vision "Hospitality - noticably - sustainable" is also based on this principle.
100% organic enjoyment
Since 2001, the Kolarik family has been taking steps towards sustainability and a greater sense of ecological and social responsibility. Therefore, especially the conversion to 100% organic was a personal concern.
Since 2019, all dishes are served exclusively in organic quality and with the reopening in 2021 also the drinks. Thus the restaurant Luftburg - Kolarik im Prater isthe largest organic restaurant in the world!
We want to create awareness, optimise the use of resources and minimise our ecological footprint.
"Naturally good food" - Gold Seal
As a "Natürlich gut essen" farm, we make an active contribution to the environment and animal welfare. With special attention to these criteria, we focus on offering regional, seasonal and organically produced food and are proud bearers of the "Natürlich gut essen" seal of quality in gold.
For the responsible management of the business as well as for the organic, regional cuisine with healthy, high-quality food, we were awarded the Austrian Ecolabel by the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism in autumn 2019.
Our sustainable corporate philosophy is not only about enjoyment with responsibility, but also about the well-being of the environment.
The legal basis states that food bearing an organic label must actually be produced in accordance with organic farming standards.
We guarantee our organic quality with the certification of the Bio Garantie control body.
It is thanks to our producers & suppliers that we can prepare fresh meals with 100% organic, mainly regional products from Austria and seasonal goods from Europe.

Sustainability is important to us in all areas, which is why we also pay attention to it in procurement and disposal as well as with our partners.
Cooking oil disposal
In Vienna, more than 320,000 kilograms of used cooking oil are disposed of every year. This is used to produce 100 percent carbon dioxide-neutral biodiesel. This saves more than 880 tons of carbon dioxide annually. For the same amount of diesel from rapeseed oil, a cultivation area of 9.54 km² would be necessary.
We are also proud of the fact that we collect and hand in all our used cooking oil in so-called "Wöli containers" and in this way also contribute to sustainability.
Switching to public transport saves up to 1,500 kg of CO2 per year, which is about 8,300 kilometres not driven by an average car. Or to put it another way, this saving replaces the cleaning power of 120 trees!
The restaurant Luftburg - Kolarik im Prater is so centrally located that we have perfect connections to the public transport network. The double benefit is that you can travel in an environmentally friendly way and enjoy your beer (or several) with a clear conscience at our place without having to worry about driving afterwards!
The restaurant Luftburg - Kolarik im Prater is supplied by Wien Energie Vertrieb GmbH & Co KG with 100% electricity from hydropower and guaranteed without CO2 emissions. Through environmentally friendly supply with renewable energy, we help to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
Our web host "all-inkl.com" relies on regenerative energy. The electricity of their data centers comes 100% from hydroelectric power plants. Together, we are thus making a contribution to environmental protection - with green electricity without climate-damaging CO2 emissions or radioactive waste.
