An Eco-labelised Campsite

WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ECO-LABEL?

Take a laundry detergent for example: in terms of environmental protection, eco-labelised brands try to replace the dangerous ingredients in their products with ingredients of natural origin. The large industrial detergent manufacturers accomplish this by adapting the entire supply chain and reducing the transport of merchandise and packaging to produce ultra-concentrated detergents which are effective in cold water, resulting in the use of less water and energy.

BUT HOW CAN A CAMPSITE BE ECO-LABELISED?


Campsites are often situated in fragile countryside environments, and their activity can give rise to the overexploitation of resources such as water and energy, resulting in serious damage to the ecosystem.

The EU Ecolabel for tourist accommodations was founded in 2003, and since then it has been adopted by an increasing number of establishments in France and Europe. An increasing number of camping service providers have also attained the EU Ecolabel since 2005.

This voluntary qualification, created by the European Commission, aims to encourage hotels, rental accommodation professionals and campsites to get involved in an eco-friendly approach. It also makes it possible for holidaymakers seeking sustainable tourism to distinguish the most eco-friendly establishments from the others.

We obtained the European Ecolabel in 2012.

Through this label we assert the following commitments:

  • low energy consumption
  • low water consumption
  • low waste production
  • using renewable energy sources and substances that are less dangerous for the environment
  • providing clients with information on environmental matters.

These criteria meet with the strict specifications jointly established by all the countries of the European Union.
