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 offset all inevitable CO2 emissions caused by your Reka stay.  You will therefore enoy 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.

As a first measure, the window facades at the Reka Holiday Village in Sörenberg were replaced in autumn 2017 in the initial phase.  The second and third phases will follow on in 2018/2019. Likewise, in 2019, all the windows of bungalows still to be refurbished at the Reka Holiday Village in Montfaucon will be replaced. On the ground floor of the community house the window fronts are being completely renovated and the façade of the whole building is being insulated.  The new windows‘ insulated glazing will meet today’s energy requirements. In addition to enhanced comfort and security, heat loss and subsequent CO2 emissions will be significantly reduced. Overall savings in the energy sector are expected to be about 20%.
