Morges Région Tourisme is aware of its responsibility towards the environment, society and the economy and has joined the myclimate sustainability programme "Cause we Care" in 2021 to make a concrete contribution to sustainability in Swiss tourism.
The programme has a double effect by using a simple mechanism: tourists take responsibility for their climate emissions and contribute to measures for more sustainability when booking with Morges Région Tourisme.
HOW DOES IT WORK IN PRACTICE?
Morges Région Tourisme offers a supplement of 1.5% (but minimum CHF 1.-) for a climate-neutral offer when making online purchases on its website. This voluntary contribution to "Cause We Care" is doubled by the region.
With these contributions, the emissions associated with the requested offer are reduced by high-quality climate protection projects of the myclimate Foundation. At the same time, the Morges region doubles the contribution and invests in a sustainable project. This has a double positive impact on climate protection. The activity becomes climate neutral.
The use of the funds and the local projects are validated by ecoLive
, the French-speaking branch of myclimate.
Morges Région Tourisme is the first destination in French-speaking Switzerland to join myclimate and thus set an example.
It should also be mentioned that the city of Morges is certified with the VILLEVERTE
myclimate is a partner for effective climate protection - globally and locally. Together with businesses and private individuals, myclimate shapes a sustainable future through advisory and educational services as well as its own projects. As a non-profit organisation, the foundation pursues this goal in a market-oriented and client-focused manner.
The myclimate project "Cause we Care" was financed until its official launch in 2017 by Innotour
, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs' (SECO) programme for promoting innovation in tourism.
