Sustainable camping in Switzerland

TCS Camping protects all that makes camping special and actively supports the sustainability strategy of Switzerland Tourism and the tourism industry

We protect all that makes camping special

1. Swisstainable

Camping is all about experiencing nature. If this experience of nature is to be enjoyed long-term, we must protect nature and the environment. 

This is why TCS Camping supports the sustainability strategy of Switzerland Tourism and the tourism industry and is actively committed to the Swisstainable programme.

TCS campsites already place a great emphasis on sustainability: we source all our electricity from hydro and other renewable energy sources, purchase CO2 certificates to offset carbon emissions on the quantities of gas and gas cylinders supplied to us, and offer a rental service for BMWi3s, e-bikes and Carvelos (electric cargo bikes), to name just a few examples.

What does the “Swisstainable” label mean?

Swisstainable reflects the current trend – and stands for maximum relaxation in nature:

  • Enjoy pristine nature up-close
  • Experience local culture in an authentic way
  • Consume regional products
  • Stay for longer and delve deeper

The sustainability programme is implemented in three phases

Level 1 - committed

TCS Camping is committed to sustainable business management and to continuously developing its campsites further towards sustainability.

All TCS campsites are in the Swisstainable Level 1 category, meaning they have pledged themselves to following the sustainability programme and are now striving to reach Level 2.

Level 2 - engaged

TCS Camping is committed to sustainable business management and has a recognised credential in various sustainability dimensions. Il TCS Camping si impegna ad adottare una gestione aziendale sostenibile e presenta delle certificazioni nelle aree di sostenibilità.

Level 3 - leading

  • TCS Camping has a comprehensive, recognized sustainability credential.
  • Currently certified with Level 3: TCS Camping Solothurn
