Green Key

EuroParcs holiday parks with the Green Key quality label: Sustainability in tourism

In a world where environmental awareness, sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are becoming increasingly important, the tourism industry has a crucial role to play in promoting these values.

Of course, sustainable travel is also very much in vogue and many people want to make a personal contribution to the environment when planning their holidays. 19 of our holiday parks are now Green Key accredited, providing an excellent opportunity to combine sustainability with a holiday.

The Green Key label

The Green Key is one of the leading sustainability labels in the tourism and leisure sector, with over 1,600 participants worldwide. As an organisation, we are committed to sustainability and are delighted that many of our holiday parks have been awarded the Green Key.

The aim of the Green Key programme is to develop and manage an eco-label for environmentally and sustainably oriented tourism businesses such as hotels and holiday parks. Key aspects of the Green Key programme include:

  • Environmental and sustainability education for owners, staff and guests

  • Environmental protection and sustainability through reduction of environmental impact

  • Cost efficiency through sustainable resource management

  • Marketing strategy to promote the eco-label and labelled establishments

Sustainability at EuroParcs: A commitment to the environment and society

To achieve our sustainability goals, we rely on a variety of measures, including reducing the environmental footprint of our holiday parks. By using renewable energy, water recycling systems and water-saving taps, we minimise energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.

We also strive to operate in an environmentally friendly manner, including using environmentally friendly cleaning products and reducing waste. We also give back to the community by partnering with charities and conservation organisations and actively participating in local community projects.

As a business, we are committed to meeting the required standards and minimising the impact of our activities on nature and the environment. The Green Key is our way of showing our guests that sustainable management is of the utmost importance to us.

Green Key certification for our holiday parks

Our holiday parks certified with the Green Key sustainability label must meet a number of requirements. These include savings on gas, water and electricity, as well as sustainability workshops for staff.

There are three levels of Green Key certification - Gold, Silver and Bronze - and our Gold-certified resorts have significantly more requirements to meet. Our aim is to make all our holiday parks sustainable and environmentally conscious enough to achieve Gold certification.

Green Key at EuroParcs: environmental education, nature conservation and much more

In our holiday parks that have been awarded a Green Key, we naturally also implement many other measures and thus contribute to more environmental education for our employees and guests and support biodiversity in our holiday parks.

Environmental education & nature conservation at EuroParcs

At EuroParcs, we firmly believe that environmental education and awareness-raising are crucial to making a positive impact on the environment. That's why we regularly organise training courses and workshops for our employees to sensitise them to environmental and sustainability issues.

We also offer our guests information material and instructions on how they can contribute to environmental protection during their stay. This includes tips for an environmentally friendly departure and, of course, information boards about the animal species found in our holiday parks.

Biodiversity & nature conservation in the holiday parks

The protection of biodiversity and natural habitats is particularly important to us. In our holiday parks, we are actively committed to the preservation and promotion of local ecosystems. This includes measures such as the creation of natural habitats for plants and animals and the preservation of natural landscapes. We also provide habitats for birds and insects, for example by installing nesting boxes and insect hotels in our holiday parks.

Innovation and future goals

At EuroParcs, we continuously strive to innovate and improve our sustainability practices and aim to have all our holiday parks certified with the Green Key label in the future. To this end, we are investing in new technologies and solutions to further reduce our environmental footprint and utilise resources more efficiently.

Our future goals include implementing renewable energy systems, reducing single-use plastic and promoting a circular economy in our holiday parks. We are determined to continue to be a pioneer in the field of sustainable tourism and to make a positive contribution to preserving our environment.

Public transport as part of sustainable development

Our holiday parks with the Green Key label are generally easily accessible by public transport. On the website of the respective holiday park, under the heading "Facilities", you will find detailed directions for an environmentally friendly journey to the holiday park.
