Our ecology policy
We motivate our employees to behave responsibly toward the environment.
We expect our employees to actively participate in improving the ecological performance of our company.
We lead an internal Green Team, which works on projects of ecology and thus continuously improves the company in environmental issues.
We periodically review our products, processes and services with regard to environmental relevance and improve ourselves in terms of resource consumption (input), emissions to the environment (output) and waste (output).
We continuously improve our product, process and service quality with regard to ecology.
The Swiss Holiday Park also deals with the discharge of the treated water into a receiving watercourse. This very clean water hinders the ARA in the cleaning process of the sewer water and unnecessarily dilutes the otherwise dirty wastewater. Therefore, we would like to use an internal purification process to discharge the wastewater from the pools into the municipality's meteoric water pipeline, which ends in Lake Lucerne.
You can find an exciting video about this here.
Our electricity is generated from 100% hydroelectric power and the corresponding hydroelectric power plants are certified for ÖkoStrom naturemadebasic. In all renovations since 2007, the existing lighting fixtures have been replaced with energy-efficient LED lighting. In many areas of the facility, motion detectors are used to massively reduce lighting times.
It is our concern to design the entire plant close to nature. This means that only native plants and shrubs are planted and chemical pesticides are consistently avoided. Thus, the local flora and fauna is preserved and even promoted. In recent years, various natural oases have been created on the grounds of the Swiss Holiday Park, which are certified by the Foundation Nature & Economy.
In our purchasing guidelines, we state that we use reusable and recycled goods wherever possible and give preference to product suppliers who offer reusable packaging or take back shipping containers. These guidelines are periodically discussed with our suppliers and topics such as packaging, number of deliveries, bulk purchasing, etc. are discussed. In this way, we can save gray energy and further minimize our ecological footprint.
From our own farm
We buy fruit, bakery nuts and eggs directly from Erlebnishof Fronalp. With the self grown fruit we produce our own products like jam, juices, syrup and fruit brandies.
Meat & Fish
From the farm Steinbruch from the Seetal in the canton of Lucerne we get our first-class pasture-raised beef and veal in whole.
- King pike perch from aquaculture in Kottwil LU
- Trout and char from Sattel from the Reichmuth family
We obtain our apples for the Roman-Irish thermal baths as well as for the sauna area from the Sand farm in Brunnen.
Swiss Holiday Park strives to separate all its waste and dispose of it properly. In this regard, employees are trained accordingly and disposal points are maintained in the background. Please help to dispose of recyclable waste separately.
We maintain several waste separation points on our premises. First, our guests can dispose of waste in the public area. For vacation guests, we offer 2 professional disposal points where a wide variety of waste can be disposed of properly. Internally, we also maintain various recycling facilities, so that our employees have the opportunity to separate waste accordingly.
We have already realized the following ecological projects:
|Filling plant||Several bottling plants for our Fronalp spring water for guests and employees.|
|Bathed water||Discharge of bathed water into receiving water instead of sewage system.|
|LED illuminants||Further conversion to LED illuminants as well as motion detectors.|
|Heating control||Heating control in the hotel, so that the temperature can be regulated better.|
Further ecological projects are planned.
|The international Green Globe Certification was achieved at the end of 2015. This is one of the most important awards in the tourism sector, which stands for verifiable sustainability, innovation and lmage promotion for the entire Swiss tourism industry.||In 2015, Swiss Holiday Park received the Milestone (Switzerland's most important tourism award) for its environmental efforts in the "Environment" category.||Familotel and sustainability belong together. Our youngest guests are the parents of tomorrow, our own children the hosts of tomorrow. They should all continue to find an environment worth living in and see the same possibilities and opportunities as we have today.|
