KnowS stands for sustainability

At a time when awareness of sustainability is becoming increasingly important, it is crucial that companies and communities act together. At KnowS, we see sustainability as a core value that is deeply embedded not only in our actions, but also in our daily practice and company design. We critically observe the increasing consumer mania characterized by events such as Black Friday and want to counteract this decisively. This has motivated us to go against the trend of overconsumption and show alternative ways of living and consuming more consciously.

As we face up to this challenge, recent developments show just how urgent these changes are. For the first time, climate activists have succeeded before the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) to enforce tougher measures against climate change. The judges found that Switzerland had violated the applicants' human rights. In addition, climate change and its consequences were allegedly not addressed in a timely and appropriate manner in relation to the self-imposed targets. (tagesschau.de)

Benefit from the Greenweeks at KnowS all year round and get a discount of CHF 30 on your next booking with the code "Greenweeks". 🌳 Our "Greenweeks", in which we increase our commitment and plant twice the number of trees, are just one example of our efforts to promote sustainable thinking and action. These campaigns not only serve to minimize our own ecological footprint, but also to raise awareness of the issue in our community. In doing so, we rely on an informal environment in which ideas and tips for sustainable living can be exchanged.

Another pillar of our sustainability strategy is our long-standing partnership with the organization "BOS-Switzerland". Thanks to the commitment of our community, several thousand trees have already been planted. But for us, sustainability doesn't just mean conserving resources, it also means taking action locally. During a business trip with Myblueplanet, for example, we lent a hand and supported local projects to put our values into practice.

Community engagement is of crucial importance to us. By expanding our community, we are creating an increasing local network that enables us to support each other within the community. This not only promotes local cohesion, but also saves valuable emissions that would be caused by longer journeys.
