Promoting Sustainable Travel
The Institute of Tourism at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, in collaboration with Kuoni, has conducted a broad study regarding customer demand of sustainable travel packages. It was established that 22% of customers consider sustainability as one of the top three deciding factors when booking travel packages.
Particular attention is paid to customers who have expressed wishes for sustainable travel packages. Kuoni strives to continually increase the sustainability of its products and offer a wide range of sustainable products to its customers. Firstly, Kuoni collaborates closely with its most important hotel partners to improve the sustainability of hotels in the mass market. Secondly, Kuoni works with NGO and industry partners to develop new sustainable products. Thirdly, to counter the effects of travel on climate change, customers are offered compensation tickets for their flight emissions.
