Austrian Eco-Label for Tourism Enterprises
The Austrian Eco-Label for Tourism Enterprises was created in 1996 as a quality label attesting to environmentally conscious management and socially-minded conduct by tourism enterprises. The approved businesses are committed to maintaining the foundations of life and dedicated to the well-being of their guests, economising on operating costs in the process.
Based on an extensive list of criteria, businesses are rated on the following aspects: general management, environmental management, energy, water, waste, air, noise, office, cleaning, chemicals, hygiene, building and living, furnishings and fixtures, food, cuisine, traffic and outdoor areas, seminars and wellness.
The basic requirements are represented in the mandatory criteria and become applicable in accordance with the type of business and range of services. In addition, there are certain op-tional target criteria that take into account the specific business situation in greater detail, such as size, range of services, furnishings and fixtures, and location.
