Sustainability is increasingly taking centre stage at the Wagrain-Kleinarl Tourist Board.
We want and promote a tourism that does not live from our region, but for and with us. Together we are moving step by step towards a sustainable future.
So that we are all talking about the same thing, we would like to cite the definition of sustainable tourism from the UNWTO:
„Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities” (UNWTO)
Sustainability encompasses many areas in our destination. Our sustainability pages will help you understand our sustainable path and make the best choices to spend a conscious holiday in Wagrain-Kleinarl.
Feel free to contact us and write us an email. We are looking forward to it.
Together, step by step, we are working on ourselves so that sustainability is a visible and natural part of (tourist) life in Wagrain-Kleinarl. Many exciting projects and tasks are running in the background.
With our sustainability board, we have developed a sustainability mission statement. Together we have created a sustainability label in Wagrain-Kleinarl, which gives you a well-founded and comprehensible orientation in the area of sustainability (gastronomy, accommodation, products, activities). We are a pilot partner region of the Austrian Eco-label and are the first destination in Austria to be audited with the GSTC (global sustainable tourism council) accredited certification of Green Destinations. In addition, we were part of the research project "Quality Tourism in the Alpine Space".
Our sustainability programme, which is updated at least once a year, can be viewed in its entirety below. Here, all sustainability areas relevant to us are highlighted and linked to a concrete catalogue of measures (programme). It contains both the "routine" management tasks as well as concrete projects that we will implement in the future. Take a look. If you notice something or have further ideas for further development, please write us a message. We are happy to receive feedback!
Do you have great ideas on how we can implement sustainability even better in Wagrain-Kleinarl? Do you have concerns or are you worried about sustainability? Then we look forward to hearing from you - every small step is a step in the right direction.
