Your sustainable day trip to Silvretta-Bielerhöhe
You care about the environment? Great – because we do too! That’s why, as a climate-friendly tourism region, we have taken targeted action to make your trip to Silvretta-Bielerhöhe as sustainable as possible. After all, nature is the stage for your most stunning hiking experiences in the Montafon valley – and we’d like to keep it that way.
where we’re headed
#1 reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions by 77 % by 2030 (base year 2016/17). Until now we have reduced 60 % of our CO2e-emissions.
#2 dedicated advancement of e-mobility projects
#3 continuous increase of energy efficiency
At Silvretta-Bielerhöhe, our sustainability goals are incredibly important to us. Why? Quite simply: If we do not take immediate action against climate change, we can expect a significant rise in temperatures. This will mean fewer days of frost in winter, less snow and more extreme weather such as heavy precipitation and droughts. This will have an impact on how the wildlife and vegetation in our region develop – and, of course, on the way we will be able to spend our summer and winter holidays in the mountains in the future.
It is up to all of us to make a joint contribution to the protection and preservation of the environment. At Silvretta-Bielerhöhe, we try to do this in a very targeted way by keeping greenhouse gas emissions as low as possible. Those areas in which we are unable to reduce emissions, we support climate projects via the turn to zero platform.
