First winners Campercontact Sustainability Award
Sustainability is an important topic for 58% of those surveyed. Litter lying around is therefore the main annoyance at a campsite or motorhome site with 68%. Of this group, 78% have solar panels on their motorhomes and 69% are fanatical about waste separation. Venues are increasingly responding to this trend. To support this, Campercontact presents the Sustainability Award for the first time.
Here are the winners per country, chosen by a professional sustainability jury:
The jury was impressed by the level of sustainable initiatives displayed by the nominated sites in this first edition. Examples of these were: recovering heat from a ventilation system, green roofs, planting trees, recycling grey water into organic compost, cleaning projects in the region, selling local products and contributing to biodiversity.
The professional jury of the Sustainability Award consisted of Marieke van Dijl, sustainability programme leader of the NKC (Dutch Motorhome Association), and Melanie and Mariëlle Masseurs of CamperHomie (motivates campers to travel more sustainably).
