Swiss tourism is a contributor to greenhouse gases. It is also directly affected by the climate change caused by this.
The industry has recognised this and has committed itself to concrete measures that promote a more sustainable tourism by way of a sustainability charter. Interlaken Tourism too is actively involved in the implementation of this charter. Sustainability is an integral part of all the strategic documents of the organisation. With specific sustainability measures, the charter is not something we just pay lip-service too. Interlaken Tourism procures its electricity from 100%-certified hydropower sources. Interlaken is also participating in the development of sustainability management for the destination in collaboration with the University of Lucerne.
