What is the initiative about?

Why «Cause We Care»?

One thing is necessary above all others to stop climate change today: We need to take action! That is exactly where «Cause We Care» comes into play. We want to use the initiative to raise awareness and inform people about the consequences of climate change. Above all, we want to offer private persons and companies specific ways of actively living and contributing towards climate protection. Why are we doing that? Cause we care!

Our philosophy

A common understanding of values unites us as «Cause We Care» companies. In order to actively combat climate change, we live and do business according to the following principles:

Nature

We love nature and want to preserve it in all its beauty.

Klima

We continually reduce our carbon footprint and compensate for the emissions we cannot avoid.

Sustainability

We live and do business sustainably, are mindful of our energy consumption and protect natural resources.

The climate is changing

2016

was the warmest year since people began taking measurements

By

2099

90% of Switzerland's glacial ice will very likely have disappeared.

84,8

mm did the sea level rise between 1901 and 2010.

9 of the 10

hottest years since measurements have been taken were in the 21st century.

In Switzerland, the temperature has increased by

2°C

since 1864. The global average increase is 0.9°C

300 m

higher have the snow lines already moved in Switzerland in recent decades

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time:

For Switzerland, this change means drier summers, more intense precipitation, more hot days and less snow in the winter. What we can already sense today will become much stronger in the future and require drastic adjustment measures.

Tourism and climate protection

Climate change is particularly tangible in tourism. Entire regions are changing visibly and more drastically from day to day. Unfortunately, tourism itself contributes to these changes, which augments the need to take action. Possible negative effects on the environment include loss of species diversity, damage to ecosystems, air and water pollution and noise. These kinds of external influences can harm animals and plants or impact the soil. However, the tourism industry is also a significant cause of CO₂ emissions, especially where arrivals and departures, transportation and on-site activities are concerned.

However, tourist activities certainly have positive effects as well. For example, when they increase our awareness of nature’s incomparable value and use the funds earned in the process to preserve and protect nature.

While politics and our society search for solutions and enact long-term measures, we are motivating each and every one of us to make our own contribution to climate protection today. Join us!
