Sustainability strategy is paying off
Despite the difficult underlying conditions, the Swiss Youth Hostels organisation is able to look back on a successful year in its just published 2010 annual report. With 945,828 overnight stays, it almost succeeded in matching the previous year’s figure while increasing turnover by 1.4 per cent to CHF 41.1 million. With regard to sustainability, the Swiss Youth Hostels can also reveal an impressive result: CO2 emissions for space heating have been cut by 37.1 percent per square metre compared to 2000. The Delegate Assembly of the non-profit organisation is scheduled to take place in the newly renovated St. Moritz Youth Hostel on 18 June 2011. The Swiss Youth Hostels association has a membership of 104,663.
