Ecologically-aware building and behaviour

Ecological sustainability

Everybody knows travel drains energy resources and the Reka has long been trying to limit this. It has therefore always chosen to locate its Reka Holiday Villages in areas that are within easy reach by public transport. It has systematically limited its air travel offers and ‘drawn‘ the well-known Reka activities radius around Switzerland.

Offers such as in the Reka Holiday Village in Urnäsch, for example, are also naturally ecologically sustainable. Here families experience this ‘hands-on‘ with local produce made without industrial additives or processes. This is why one of the Reka’s aims is to stage regional themes ecologically without wasting energy resources, combining these with traditional tourism offers.
 
For a tourist accommodation provider the most significant savings in natural energy resources are naturally to be made in the building and energy spheres.The Reka has set itself very strict targets in this respect. It therefore aims to build new facilities according to the SIA’s Energy Efficiency Path, a requirement that has already been met with the two Minergie-standard constructions in Urnäsch and Disentis. Total energy waste in existing facilities today must be reduced by 30 % by 2021 with the portion of unrenewable fossil energy reduced by 70 %.
