Tschuggen Hotel Group is climate-neutral
The buildings owned by the Tschuggen Hotel Group are located in the midst of impressive natural scenery and we are convinced that climate change and environmental protection are the greatest challenges of our time. That is why we have launched a partnership with the myclimate foundation and have been completely climate-neutral from 2019 onwards.
We have significantly reduced the CO2 emissions of all of our hotels thanks to sustainable construction activity, the optimised use of resources, local connections and the provision of training to and the raising of awareness of our employees on relevant subjects. In addition, we offset unavoidable emissions by financing myclimate climate protection projects in Switzerland and in Rwanda.
Our sustainability management plan ensures the implementation of all measures. Learn more about it here.

Our sustainability flagship
Sustainability is the main focus of our Valsana Hotel Arosa. During the construction of the new building (opened in December 2017), we attached particular importance to using sustainable materials, products from Switzerland and a forward-looking energy concept.
Thanks to the ice battery in the cellar, the entire building complex can be heated without the need for fossil fuels. The hotel thus generates practically no CO2 emissions – ensuring that guests have a good conscience when staying with us.
