Rigi Bahnen AG
With a voluntary contribution of 1% on the booked offer or product, guests have the opportunity to offset the CO2 emissions of their offer or product with myclimate and make a contribution to local sustainability. In this way, the guests achieve a double effect with their commitment. At the same time, Rigi Bahnen AG doubles these contributions and invests in its own sustainability.
Two rack railways, seven cable cars, hotels and restaurants, wellness in Mineralbad & Spa Rigi Kaltbad, hiking paths and many summits to climb, as well as summer and winter activities for young and old – that is the queen of the mountains.
With so many activities available, it is easy to forget about acting sustainably. However, it is important for the railway company Rigi Bahnen to raise its visitors’ awareness about topics like sustainable development, job creation, nature conservancy, climate protection, etc.
Rigi Bahnen AG’s sustainability philosophy: Our goal is to achieve great things for the environment through small steps.
Sand Lizard rescue along the railway line
The habitat of the mountain lizards is threatened. At the same time, embankments are cut back, which is why the lizards lose their shelter. The habitat of the sand lizards is to be preserved. In order to achieve this goal, the Rigi Railways, together with the farmers on the mountain, draw up a maintenance plan for the slope maintenance along the railway line.
Project "Insect hotel"
In order to sensitise future generations to the topic of sustainability, Rigi Bahnen AG is planning a collaboration with a primary school in the region. The teachers will roam the forests of the Rigi region with the pupils and help to collect the needed materials. The children will also help with the construction of the hotel. The aim is for the first insects to be able to move into their new home in spring 2020.
