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.
