Sustainability at BLS Lake Cruise on lakes Thun and Brienz

BLS Lake Cruise is aware of its responsibility towards the environment, society and economy. With its "Swisstainable" sustainability programme, BLS Lake Cruise is making a contribution to sustainable development in tourism. 

We always take ecological, social and economic aspects into account in all our decisions and manage them within our means as a forward-thinking lake cruise company in the Bernese Oberland.  

BLS Lake Cruise Ltd. is Swisstainable
Since 2021, BLS Lake Cruise is carrying the Swisstainable "committed" label (Level I of III). With this commitment, we are joining Switzerland Tourism's goal of becoming the world's most sustainable travel destination.  

Within the concept of Swisstainable, BLS Lake Cruise has appointed a sustainability officer who is responsible for implementing measures within the company. Within BLS Lake Cruise, measures are implemented on an ongoing basis and thus also promote internal commitment and awareness of the importance of sustainability. With Swisstainable, we are committed to sustainable development in three dimensions. 


  • Long-term commitment to the conservation and careful use of nature. 
  • Respecting sensitive natural spaces and protected areas and minimising impacts on the landscape. 
  • Reduce waste and resource consumption and focus on environmentally friendly mobility. 


  • Address, cultivate and promote regional culture and facilitate exchange between guests and the local population. 
  • Address specific guest needs such as accessibility or family-friendliness. 
  • Provide information about our commitment to sustainable development and encourage our guests to behave considerately. 


  • Give preference to local products and partnerships and thereby strengthen regional cycles. 
  • Offer attractive jobs and involve employees in the sustainable development of our offers. 
  • Embed sustainability efforts in our corporate strategy and define and purposefully implement measures.
