Responsibility and sustainable tourism
Suomi Camping Oy has made a commitment to the principles of sustainable travel. Sustainable tourism refers to tourism that takes the current and future financial, social, and environmental impact into account. Sustainable tourism accounts equally for the needs of tourists, tourism enterprises, tourist destinations, environment, and the local people. In practice, we put the principles of sustainable tourism into action through EcoCompass and the Sustainable Travel Finland (STF) development path of Visit Finland.
We are doing our part in building sustainable tourism!
We have been granted an EcoCompassCertificate in December 2022This means that we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations, and have created an environmental program for our company. With the help of the program, we monitor the achievement of our goals and the implementation of the planned measures. The EkoCompassCertificate is valid for 3 years at time, after which there is a re-audit.
Sustainable Travel FinlandIn addition to EcoCompass, we have joined Visit Finland's Sustainable Travel Finland program, which is intended to support us on our way toward more sustainable tourism.
Sustainable tourism comprises sociocultural, financial, and ecological aspects. Concrete targets for development include reducing the amount of energy consumed and waste produced, equal treatment of personnel and customers and consulting the local people, planning our activities in the longer-term in a cost-effective manner, and employing local people.
Once we have completed the program, we are able to use the Sustainable Travel Finland label. The process of applying for the STF label has been started and we believe that we will receive it in the next few months.
Our Joint Environmental PromiseThe reduction of environmental impact is our objective.
The future of our customers, our personnel, and nature is important to us. This is why we have made a commitment to sustainable development and persistent, long-term work in order to reduce environmental impact by, for example, improving the efficiency of energy consumption, reducing waste, and increasing environmental awareness among our personnel and customers. Environmental work is an element of our responsible business activities, which also include financial and social responsibility.
Responsible actions in Suomi Camping
Reducing electricity consumptionAccommodation uses a lot of electricity. There are altogether more than 250 cottages in our camping sites in the summertime and nearly 50 cottages in the wintertime. On top of this there are maintenance buildings, receptions, restaurants and other service buildings. Electricity is also used in caravan pitches. For us, saving electricity is not only an environmental issue, it’s also a factor to reduce costs.
In January 2023, our company managed to save 21% of electricity compared to January 2022.
We constantly monitor our electricity consumption and reduce the temperatures if the cottages or other buildings are unused. We are also gradually replacing the lamps to energy-saving LED lamps. For example, at Camping Härmälä, all outdoor lights were replaced with LED lamps last year.
Sustainable purchasesWe are using a lot of cleaning products and tissue papers during the year. We want the impact on the environment is as low as possible. That’s why, we are changing all our cleaning products to eco-labeled products. Tissue papers have also been chosen from environmentally friendly options. We also try to reduce the amount of wastepaper by replacing papers with fabric/paper hand towel rolls.
We are setting environmental criteria for the subcontracting companies we use. We score companies according to how the companies have taken environmental issues into account. In the future, we aim to choose our partners based on these criteria.
We want to choose local products and services whenever it’s possible. For example, we rent cash registers from a local supplier, use a local printing company to copy camping site maps, buy firewood and hamburger patties from a local supplier.
Travelling and natureWe want to promote opportunities for customers to arrive in our camping sites also by public transport instead of their own car. In our camping sites, we are happy to give more information on the best way to reach us.
Our numerous rental equipment enable you to move around in nature and the surrounding area. You can rent e.g., bicycles/fat bikes, electric scooters, canoes/kayaks, rowing boats, pedal cars and sup-boards.
Rauhalahti Holiday Centre is replacing one gasoline car to electric car in March 2023, the second one is meant to change later.
