Cause We Care

Our participation in the myclimate initiative for climate protection and sustainability

 

Join us in supporting our climate!

 

You enjoy your holidays in our unspoilt natural environment, but we realize that it is endangered by the dramatic pace of climate change. Join us to ensure that both your children and grandchildren will be able to share this experience in future.  Here at the Reka, as part of the myclimate’s Cause We Care climate protection initiative, we are actively promoting effective climate protection. Get involved with us too!

How does it work?

When you book your Reka holiday your small voluntary contribution to Cause We Care – one per cent of the booking amount - can have a double impact: We pledge to counterbalance all unavoidable CO2 emissions related to your Reka stay with the “myclimate” climate protection project “Biogas for rural households in India”. You will therefore enjoy a climate-neutral holiday and at the same time promote sustainable development, job creation, nature conservation and much more in places where this is particularly necessary.

As a thank-you gesture for your contribution we will invest the same amount in our internal, specially ear-marked sustainability programme and reduce our own CO2 output and energy consumption. In this way we ensure that you will be able to have relaxing and even more climate-friendly and sustainable holidays with us in future.

Impressions of the window replacement in the Reka holiday village Sörenberg:
As a first step, the window façades at the Reka Holiday Village Sörenberg were replaced in 2017 – 2019. 

 

Impressions of working in the Reka holiday village Montfaucon
In spring 2019, the windows in bungalows that had not yet been renovated at the Reka Holiday Village in Montfaucon were replaced. On the ground floor of the community house, the window façade was completely renovated and the façades of the entire building were insulated. The new windows are equipped with thermally insulated glazing to meet current standards. The indoor pool has also been refurbished: pool technology (water purification, ventilation system, pools), the cloakrooms and showers, the floors, walls and roof were all re-designed.  In addition to increasing comfort and security, loss of heat and consequently CO2 emissions were reduced. Savings envisaged in the energy sector will amount to approximately 20%.

  
 

Biogas for rural households in India
The “myclimate” climate protection project finances the construction of biogas plants as clean and sustainable energy sources for households all over India. Biogas derived from cow dung is intended to replace currently used fuels such as firewood and kerosene.

I care - When you book one of our offers you can pay an additional 1% of the booking amount as a voluntary “Cause We Care” contribution. This ensures a carbon-neutral product.
    We care – Once you’re involved, we double your contribution and deposit both contributions in our “Cause We Care” fund.
    Using this fund we compensate emissions generated by your holiday with myclimate.  At the same time we invest at home in local climate protection and sustainability measures.
             
             
With myclimate “Cause We Care” you are making a double contribution to climate protection: in global climate protection projects and local measures on the Ground.
