A new approach to travel

Sustainable travel doesn’t necessarily mean having to live without it completely. Sustainable travel means greater awareness and depth and more enjoyment. With this in mind, Switzerland follows its own sustainability strategy: Swisstainable.

Swisstainable is all about having one’s finger on the pulse – and maximum relaxation in a natural setting:

1. Enjoy nature up close and at first hand

2. Experience the local culture in an authentic way

3. Consume regional products

4. Stay for longer and delve deeper

Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDS)

Switzerland Tourism and eight Swiss Destinations have entered a partnership with the GDS-movement. Their index evaluates and rates the social and environmental performance of a destination. This contributes to an improvement in performance and helps to create sustainable meeting destinations in the longer term.
