Swiss Youth Hostels wins ZKB Sustainability Award
On 17th January Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB) announced the winners of the ZKB Sustainability Award. The Swiss Youth Hostels are proud to have received the ZKB Sustainability Award with a prize value of CHF 70,000. For the first time ever the award was received by a tourism organisation.
Mr Urs Oberholzer, Chairmann of the Zürcher Kantonalbank, emphasised in his honorary speech that the Swiss Youth Hostels had recognised sustainability as an entrepreneurial challenge and opportunity. Implementation was then gradually and methodically executed over the last few years. In assessing the submissions the jury took the economical, ecological and social aspects of the sustainable achievements into equal consideration.
