The voluntary contribution of Tourism Engadin Scuol Samnaun Val Müstair AG (TESSVM) to sustainable development


The destination Engadin Samnaun Val Müstair positions itself as THE nature and culture holiday region in Switzerland. The focus is on experiencing nature and culture with high quality. The nature and landscape should be preserved and strengthened. Authentic culture is promoted and enlivened. By involving the local population, it is possible for guests and locals to meet. The year-round utilisation of beds, infrastructure and services ensures the income of the local families. Thus the regional economic cycle is maintained. The award of the MILESTONE Environmental Prize 2011 confirms that the destination Engadin Samnaun Val Müstair is a model region for sustainability and not just recently.
