Sustainability cannot be achieved overnight. Rather, it is a long and continuous process of transformation that requires everyone involved to think and help. That is why we at DER Touristik Group have been working for many years with our service providers, in industry initiatives and together with civil society on sustainable further developments and improvements.
Strategic priorities are bundled under the sustainability programme “DER Welt verpflichtet” (DER World Committed) in order to achieve an impact in our products and the entire value chain: Conscious Travel, Energy, Climate & Environment, Employees and Social Engagement.
Within these, we have implemented many initiatives and projects in recent years to actively shape more sustainable tourism in all areas of our business. We design tourism by us for people, are committed to resource conservation and climate protection, and want to make travel experiences sustainable.
Beyond our core business, we also bear social responsibility. We want to live up to this responsibility in the less developed host countries with our charitable commitment within the framework of the DER Touristik Foundation. With it, we promote the social and economic living conditions of the people and unleash the added value of tourism for as many people as possible in these countries. In doing so, we contribute towards more stability, create prospects for the future and combat poverty. We are also committed to preserving nature and wildlife through the DER Touristik Foundation’s projects.
