Meet sustainably in Switzerland
It is well known, that the Swiss are particularly sustainable: Consistent recycling, rigid exhaust emissions standards, good waste management, carefully controlled landscape planning and strict conditions for construction projects are just part of our every-day life. Below you will find more examples of our daily effort for a respected environment and a sustainable future.
A new approach to travel
Sustainable travel doesn’t necessarily mean having to live without it completely. Sustainable travel means greater awareness and depth and more enjoyment. With this in mind, Switzerland follows its own sustainability strategy: Swisstainable.
Swisstainable is all about having one’s finger on the pulse – and maximum relaxation in a natural setting:
- Enjoy nature up close and at first hand
- Experience the local culture in an authentic way
- Consume regional products
- Stay for longer and delve deeper
This sustainability programme is designed not as yet another certification process, but with the intention of providing guidance for you as guests and planners. At the same time, we want to create a movement in which the entire industry can get involved. More about the programme: Swisstainable
Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDS)
Switzerland Tourism and eight Swiss Destinations have entered a partnership with the GDS-movement. Their index evaluates and rates the social and environmental performance of a destination. This contributes to an improvement in performance and helps to create sustainable meeting destinations in the longer term.
