Respect the mountain

Respect the mountain

Sustainability and a mindful approach to our natural landscape are issues very close to our heart. As part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage we feel committed to make our contribution to this.

The “Respect the Mountain” project aims to raise the awareness among guests, locals and tourists in the area of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site to an environmentally friendly behavior and to a respectful and responsible approach on the mountain but also in everyday life. The main topics are drinking water and waste avoidance.

The tap water in South Tyrol is drinking water of high quality. Some guests, but also locals, are not aware of this and therefore resort to bottled water for safety. “Respect the Mountain” raises awareness of the use of tap water as drinking water and how to handle it carefully and respectfully.

The best waste is that which is not produced at all. Guests, locals and tourism professionals are also encouraged to avoid waste by planning ahead, for example by avoiding disposable packaging and handling food carefully.
