Maintaining an environmentally conscientious use of resources while tailoring our offer for you is something that we care deeply about. With innovative technology and nature-loving tradition, we therefore ensure doubly sustainable holiday enjoyment.
When it comes to putting the topic of sustainability into practice and integrating it into our everyday lives, we are full of energy - from renewable sources, naturally.
What we implement as a region, is also lived in the individual municipalities every single day: Here, they ride e-bikes, charge electric cars, dispose of garbage properly, cooperate closely with local partners and seek, find and use renewable energy sources. Due to their commitment to more ecology and energy efficiency, the municipalities of St. Moritz and La Punt Chamues-ch have been awarded the label «energy city». Furthermore, in St. Moritz - that in 2019/20 got full marks for its environmentally sustainable skiing region by the internet portal skiresort.de that compared 434 skiing resorts worldwide - the energy project «Clean Energy» advocates for the continuous reduction in fossil fuels (heating oil, petrol, diesel) as well as for the promotion of renewable and locally generated energy (hydropower, solar power, geothermal energy and biomass).
We live in an age which sets a high priority on the responsible use of resources and environmentally friendly actions. Switzerland Tourism's vision is to become the most sustainable holiday destination in Switzerland - the sustainability programme Swisstainable, a programme we support, guides us in this aim.
According to the "Travel & Tourism Competitiveness" report, Switzerland is number 1 in the area of "Environmental Sustainability" and thus a global leader. And yet Switzerland is rarely associated with sustainability. With its sustainability strategy, Swisstainable, Switzerland Tourism has created a unifying vision that expresses its commitment to sustainability in tourism. The sustainability programme summarises a multitude of labels, seals of approval, standards, certifications, initiatives, programmes and awards. The aim is to provide better orientation and thereby raise awareness on the topic.
Businesses in the Engadin that are part of the programme and are thus committed to sustainability can be recognised by the following seal:
