    Commitment to sustainability

    Sustainability is one of KKL Luzern's seven strategic focus areas. We are working intensively on this topic.

    Ecological heating and cooling with lake water

    Deep lakes, like Lake Lucerne, store thermal energy. The centralised use of lake water for heating and cooling is an important step towards a sustainable energy future. Thanks to thermal energy from Lake Lucerne, we can reduce the use of fossil fuels and thus minimise CO2 and pollutant emissions. The energy is produced and consumed locally, therefore long transport routes are rendered unnecessary.

    Additionally, we built in windows with special insulation to minimise heat loss in winter and raising room temperatures in summer.

    Renewable electricity

    Since January 2024, the KKL Luzern is using 100% renewable electricity, known as "Natural Electricity". This natural electricity is generated at certified Swiss hydropower plants as well as wind energy, solar energy and biomass.

    Energy-efficient LED lighting

    By changing the lighting in over 600 rooms and on our stages from halogen to LED, we are able to save around 500,000 kWh of electricity per year.

    We are Swisstainable

    Certified with Level II - engaged, we are part of the Swisstainable sustainability programme. The programme brings together businesses and organisations from the entire Swiss tourism sector. By participating, we commit to continuous sustainable corporate development, pursue measures in the area of sustainability and thus make a real contribution to Swiss tourism.
