The annual World Environment Day took place on 5th June 2019.

 

Avoiding food waste

Avoiding-food-waste

Pilot project successfully implemented in Iti Asterias Beach with the Futouris sustainability initiative.

Around one-third of food around the world goes to waste each year according to current estimates. A massive 200,000 tons of food waste is generated annually in German hotels alone, the majority of which is avoidable.

 

A question of stance

A-question-of-stance

The coming together of the DER Touristik trademark and the operator and retail trademarks from Kuoni signifies the joining of two market heavyweights who are united by the same values and a strong awareness of sustainability. The new corporate group under the aegis of DER Touristik stands for responsible conduct – externally as well as internally. DER Touristik groups its sustainability activities under 'DER Welt verpflichtet' and thus actively commits itself through contributions to environmental protection as well as a wide range of projects in the social sector.

Responsibility for the environment
Environmental problems such as climate change or the loss of species and habitats also affect the tourism industry. It plays both roles: that of a contributor but also one of the affected. Maintaining an intact environment as travellers want to experience it on holiday is therefore something that's very close to DER Touristik's heart.

 

Social commitment

An obligation to people

DER Touristik offers fair working conditions and also promotes this among its partners in the destination countries. Opportunities for people on location and the improvement of their living conditions through working in tourism are the cornerstones of responsible conduct.
