On 10 February 2016 Landal Bad KleinKirchheim became the first Green Key awarded holiday park in Austria. The management and staff worked very hard to comply with the criteria and are very proud to get the international recognition.
Sustainability and responsible entrepreneurship are the back bone of Landal Bad Kleinkirchhheim. As a holiday park located in the middle of nature they felt the increasing need to work more sustainable. To comply with the criteria they had to undertake some changes to reduce the water and energy use, always keeping the guests’ comfort in mind.
Next to technical adaptations such as water pressure reducing valves, the management also took a look at the ‘work processes’ in the establishment. Together with staff they set up an action plan to reduce water and energy use by several behavioral changes.
‘This process raised awareness in the different departments of the establishment,’ says Georg Makoru, General Manager Landal Bad Kleinkirchheim.
As Austria has no national organisation running the Green Key programme, Landal has made an agreement with FEE to certify the parks in Austria according to German criteria. The site will be managed by Green Key International.
The Dutch company Landal Green Parks are planning to certify all their 76 holiday parks in 7 countries with Green Key.
