Ecological sustainability is the aspect which is most often associated with sustainable thinking. And even if sustainability has to be more than just ecologically sustainable, it is becoming increasingly important to pay attention to environmental compatibility. Having said that, being environmentally sustainable can pay off! With increasing media attention to the topic, ecologically sustainable businesses and destinations have an added value.
We consult you on various solutions to increase the environmental sustainability of your business.
Combat Climate Change
One of the topics currently dominating the media is climate change and its consequences for our society. Tourism is also becoming increasingly criticized in this regard. Companies and destinations that are proactive in combating climate change not only stand out with their clear competitive advantage, they also actively ensure the future of their business and beyond.
We will introduce you to the different ways to tackle climate change within your business. In addition, we advise you on which options make the most sense in your context. Our solutions are always focused on creating added value for your business and making it more attractive to guests.
Preserving ressources and making sensible choices between renewable and non-renewable ressources can make huge differences in your business’s performance. Those who reduce their own consumption of raw materials, protect the environment and save money. In addition, the use of renewable raw materials in the long run can provide strong economic benefits.
We help you to conserve resources without sacrificing quality. We will gladly assist you in weighing up whether and in how far the switch to renewable raw materials makes sense in your case.
Use Local Products
Locality and regionality is in vogue. Recently even large grocery stores increase promoting local products. There are many reasons for this. Short delivery routes ensure a better environmental performance and the products can be offered in a very different freshness and quality. Moreover, in many cases, local and regional products are not more expensive than those which originate from farer away.
We help you to get an overview of the possibilities that exist in your region, establish contacts and promote your own efforts in the regional support.
Incorporate Renewable Energies
Renewable energies are the technology of the future. In addition to clean energy production, they also have many other benefits. Companies and destinations that move to renewable energies are becoming more sustainable, more independent of fluctuating energy prices and have great potential to cut costs.
We advise you on the currently available technologies, their costs and benefits in their individual context and the current funding opportunities within your country and region.
Create Meaningful Experiences
Many guests demand not only a sustainable operation and a sustainable destination but also a meaningful experience. A lasting feeling can be intensified very well through the appropriate leisure activities. In addition, a wide range of leisure activities can also increase the attractiveness to increase the length of stay. Leisure activities should appeal to as many guests as possible, yet be as unique as possible. In this way, your company and your destination can effectively distinguish itself against competitors.
Whether active, culinary or knowledge oriented, we help you create sustainable travel offers that offer your guests the perfect all-round experience.
Using and promoting local ecosystems not only helps to make an effective contribution to biodiversity, it also enhances one’s own attractiveness and can have a positive effect on visitor numbers and ratings. The promotion of bees, local domestic animals and wild animals, rare plant species and others are in vogue and have a sympathetic look. In addition, local ecosystems can be promoted and used as an independent and cost-effective additional offer.
Together, we will discover the ecological potential of your region. We develop programs and offers that suit your company and help to put the natural beauty of your surrounding in the spotlight.
Use Regionality and Seasonality
Regional and seasonal products can reduce your own operating costs and convey a sustainable image. In addition, the conscious use of regional and seasonal products protects the environment and strengthens the local community. This often gives rise to unprecedented opportunities for collaboration.
How can you bring your own environment as well as possible into the company or the destination? We search with you for opportunities to use local and seasonal alternatives in a cost and marketing effective manner. We would also be happy to help you set up a local network and appropriate marketing.
