Combining tourism and sustainability

Sustainability-oriented Saalfelden Leogang

The fact that economic success and ecological responsibility are not mutually exclusive is clearly visible in the Saalfelden Leogang region. There are only a few regions in Austria with such a high density of companies and businesses that are entitled to bear the Austrian Eco-label. This independent seal of quality evaluates a wide range of measures in the areas of sustainability, waste management, mobility and resource management.

Sustainable Development Goals explained



For an attractive living and recreational space. Genuine and high quality.

A sustainability initiative for tourism businesses in the Saalfelden Leogang region.

2021, ten business checks were supported with a project grant. This covered a large part of the costs and made it possible for these ten businesses to receive the Sustainability Business Check worth about 700 euros for a share of only 150 euros.

Why a sustainable efficiency check?                                                                                                        Mag. (FH) Nadja Blumenkamp, Biohotel Rupertus

In 2011, we sought advice from Umweltservice Salzburg for the first time in the course of planning a renovation. We were not only offered suggestions for environmentally conscious work, but also for cost savings in ongoing operations. In addition, for us personally, the efficiency check pushed us further in our philosophy and offered possibilities for implementation. As a controlled organic hotel with 100% organic quality, these were decisive steps. Regular audits and awards such as the eco-label are a clear signal of seriousness both internally (employees) and externally (guests). In January 2021, we will be going through this process for the third time and we are learning again. Through the subsidies, companies already receive support during the elaboration. We can recommend every colleague to start this path towards sustainability and environmental protection. It is also in the hands of the entrepreneurs to take responsibility, to think in a future-oriented and holistic way and to use these opportunities.
