The Interhome Group is a role model when it comes to sustainability. We see it as our duty to leave an intact environment for future generations. That is why you, as our guest, can make a contribution to climate protection during your stay in our vacation home. The full amount will be used for climate protection projects via our partner myclimate.
We have committed ourselves to climate protection not only towards our customers and our mother company Migros, but also internationally. Interhome Group has signed the UN World Tourism Organization’s “Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism” and thus committed to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by 2030 by half and to achieve net zero by 2050 at the latest.

Sustainability has no end date, which is why we are continuously and persistently committed to sustainable holiday home tourism for today and tomorrow.
Climate change has a significant impact on biodiversity, which in turn affects tourism. Biodiversity is the variety of life on earth, including plants, animals, and microorganisms. As the climate changes, ecosystems are altered, and biodiversity is threatened. This can lead to the loss of important habitats, extinction of species, and changes in the timing and location of natural events, such as flowering or migration.
These changes have a direct impact on tourism, as many travellers are attracted to natural areas and wildlife. For example, coral reefs, which are vital to marine biodiversity, are being damaged by rising sea temperatures and ocean acidification, making them less attractive to tourists. Similarly, changes in the distribution of wildlife can make it harder for tourists to spot certain species, affecting their overall experience.
Tourism can also contribute to climate change, which exacerbates the problem. The industry is a major producer of greenhouse gases, particularly through transportation and energy use. Therefore, sustainable tourism minimises carbon emissions and reduces the impact on natural ecosystems - all essential to mitigate the negative effects of climate change on biodiversity.
In conclusion, climate change and biodiversity loss have a significant impact on tourism, and the industry must take action to minimize its contribution to the problem and adapt to the changing environment. By promoting sustainable tourism practices, we can help to protect biodiversity and ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy the natural beauty of our planet.
Climate change is caused by the increase of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. These gases trap heat from the sun and cause the planet's temperature to rise, resulting in changes in weather patterns, sea levels, and the natural environment. The accommodation sector of the tourism industry is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions due to its high energy consumption and reliance on fossil fuels. Sustainable tourism practices, such as using renewable energy sources, reducing energy consumption, and implementing waste reduction strategies, can help to minimise the impact of the accommodation sector on climate change and promote environmental sustainability.

To fulfill this commitment, we meticulously assess each of our holiday homes against our sustainability checklist. Additionally, we cultivate a close working relationship with homeowners, fostering collaboration to continually improve the sustainability practices of our holiday homes.
At our company, we are deeply committed to promoting environmental consciousness and sustainability. As part of our dedication to these values, our goal is to ensure that every employee actively participates in the Climate Fresk initiative. The Climate Fresk project is a collaborative initiative aimed at raising awareness and understanding of climate change. It involves interactive workshops where participants engage in a game-like format to explore the causes, impacts, and potential solutions to climate change. These workshops utilize a combination of scientific information and group discussions to educate and empower individuals to take action against climate change. By providing a platform for dialogue and knowledge sharing, the Climate Fresk project not only fosters a sense of urgency but also inspires collective efforts in addressing this global issue. We believe that by actively engaging our employees in the Climate Fresk workshops, we can equip them with valuable insights and empower them to make informed choices towards building sustainable and climate-resilient futures.
To improve our environmental impact, we have thoroughly assessed each office within our organization. This includes evaluating the electricity source, heating systems, and even smaller details like paper and cleaning supplies. Armed with this valuable information, we are creating clear guidelines to drive environmental improvements in our offices.
By understanding the environmental implications of our operations, we can implement targeted strategies to reduce our ecological footprint. This involves optimizing energy sources, improving heating system efficiency, adopting sustainable paper alternatives, and using eco-friendly cleaning supplies. These steps are essential for aligning our offices with sustainable practices and minimizing our overall environmental impact.
Through our ongoing commitment to responsible resource management and waste reduction, we aim to set a positive example within our industry and inspire others to do the same. We understand that even small changes can have a significant impact when multiplied across our organization.
