Improving our Environment together
We are aware of our responsibility.
At Landquart Fashion Outlet, sustainability is not just a buzzword or one-off campaign - it is an integral part for us and the way we manage our outlet.
We focus on our key environmental and social impacts and use responsible corporate governance to achieve this. Our sustainability strategy, defined by VIA Outlets B.V. Group, provides the framework as well as ambitious targets, key performance indicator initiatives for our sustainability engagement (for more information, see our global sustainability website and the latest sustainability report).
Key areas of action for us are sustainable buildings, responsible consumption, resilient communities, and sharing and engaging with and for our stakeholder groups. Below we present selected measures that we have implemented for a more sustainable Landquart Fashion Outlet. #
ISO 14001-certified environmental management system
Since 2021, the environmental management system of the entire portfolio of the VIA Outlets Group has been externally certified according to the internationally recognized ISO 14001 standard. All centers are regularly subjected to internal and external audits for this purpose.
BREEAM In Use Certification.
Each center is managed in accordance with BREEAM In Use ("BREEAM Inventory") criteria. The certification is widely used and recognized worldwide and is used as a sustainability label for existing buildings. Buildings are assessed, for example, in the areas of waste, health or ecology. All centers, including Landquart, have a score of "Very Good" or higher.
Thanks to modern heating pumps powered by electricity from renewable sources, we ensure low-emission and efficient heating at the Landquart Fashion Outlet. The heat pumps use heat and the natural refrigerant ammonia for operation to minimize negative climate effects.
Various types of waste are generated in the outlet, packaging material such as cardboard or foil from deliveries, empty cleaning containers or even electronic waste. To ensure that these valuable resources can be reintroduced into the cycle, we have a strict "Zero Landfill Policy", i.e. we do not dispose of waste in landfills. Our waste management follows the approach of the European waste hierarchy, where avoidance, reuse and recycling always take priority over energy recovery (unsafe, contaminated waste must be disposed of safely) - currently we collect different waste streams we paper/cardboard, foil or glass. The goal at VIA Outlets group level is to increase the recycling rate by 15% by 2025 (base year 2019, more information here).
Landquart Fashion Outlet is very well connected to local and regional rail services by the Rhaetian Railway (RB) and Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) thanks to its immediate proximity to Landquart train station. As an incentive to travel by train, we grant Rhaetian Railway travelers with a one-way ticket a free return trip with a minimum purchase value of CHF 100. Holders of an SBB train ticket or a subscription receive the VIP Pass for an additional 10% off the regular outlet price (more information can be found here). In addition, we are constantly increasing the number of e-charging points for e-cars; currently, customers can rely on 24 charging points, the majority of which are Tesla Superchargers, which enable particularly fast charging.
More responsible consumption & brands
We want to offer our customers a unique and increasingly sustainable shopping experience. This means not only working on our own sustainability goals, but also encouraging our brand partners to implement sustainability initiatives and consume more responsibly.
