Accommodations for sustainable travel

Austrian Eco-label Accommodations in the Wilder Kaiser region


The Wilder Kaiser region’s most sustainable accommodations

Austrian Eco-label Accommodations

The Austrian Eco-label is an independent seal of quality that aids environmentally conscious guests in selecting accommodations in line with their values. The seal incorporates all pillars of sustainability and addresses ecological and economic aspects as well as social aspects. The Eco-label stands for environmental awareness and high quality. To ensure that standards are maintained, the certified businesses are re-inspected every 4 years.

As part of the Wilder Kaiser’s self-perception, quality of life through sustainable tourism was established as a vision for the region. In this context, there is also a need for sustainably oriented tourism businesses that anchor this self-perception in their daily operations and proactively and self-confidently communicate this to the outside world. For this reason, the Wilder Kaiser tourist board supports businesses in the region in obtaining Austrian Eco-label certification. Relevant information about the Austrian Eco-label, certified hotels and accommodation establishments, as well as all hosts currently pursuing certification are available on this page.

Accommodation with the Austrian Eco-label

Wilder Kaiser tourist board promotes all businesses that want to be certified with the Austrian Eco-label. As a result, many interested accommodation providers from Ellmau, Going, Scheffau and Söll have already taken part in free information events and some of them are now in the certification process. The Eco-label is granted as soon as all mandatory criteria and a certain percentage of points from the target proposals have been fulfilled. The catalogue of criteria covers areas such as business management, environmental management, energy, water, waste, cleaning, hygiene, construction, food, transport and more. Every tourism operation is eligible for certification with the Austrian Eco-label.

Businesses working towards Austrian Eco-label

Juliane Schipflinger,

Owner of KaiserMoments Going

During my training to become a yoga teacher, my perspective changed about how we treat our fellow human beings, the environment, the animals and all the resources that are available to us. If through certification as an Eco-label business, we can make even a small contribution to better using resources and thus to a healthier environment, then we have already taken an important step in the right direction.

Stefanie Mayer

Owner of Residenz Theresa Söll

"Holidays and travel are amongst the best things in life. Environmentally conscious planning and sustainable design do not have to be difficult, which is why, as an environmentally certified business, we want to help offer our guests a sustainable alternative in the Wilder Kaiser region with added value and without compromise. By obtaining Austrian Eco-label certification, we generate quality through sustainability and are pleased to contribute to a more environmentally conscious community."
