Sustainability on Lake Lucerne - leading by example!
At the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV AG), we care about the sensitive Alpine environment, in which we operate. Therefore sustainability and environmental protection are a big part of our corporate philosophy. We take into consideration the impact of our activities on the region and seek to ensure harmony between economy and ecology. As a local company with a long-standing tradition dating back almost 200 years, we are aware of our obligation to lead and set a good example.
Therefore we are committed to reduce our carbon footprint during the coming years and lessen the emissions that are typically associated with the operation of passenger ships. We see these commitments as our contribution to local climate protection. Aside from directly reducing our own carbon emissions, we also strive to offset our footprint through global carbon compensation and support the environmental initiatives of the Swiss non-for-profit foundation myclimate. In recognition of our efforts, we have been designated with the myclimate impact label and have been formally classified as a sustainable operator.
In addition to these efforts, we seek to raise awareness about sustainability and climate protection, both with our employees and customers.
