The family business Mack has always put emphasis on sustainable economics which is manifested in the company's values: "We are aware of our responsibilities for the environment and culture and are honouring it through carefully dealing with the environment, commodities and buildings."
During the construction of the water world, we strongly valued its sustainability. We would like to introduce some examples.
If you have any questions about the sustainability, please contact us at nachhaltigkeit [at] europapark.de.
Already during the planning and construction of Rulantica and the hotel 'Krønasår', the living spaces of animals and plants were taken into consideration and protected. In addition to this, a planning group for landscape and environment from Freiburg in cooperation with the regional authorities developed a complete catalogue of balancing measures that are being implemented.
An environmental working group, founded in 2015 by Ann-Kathrin Mack, member of the Executive Board, that consists of representatives of Europa-Park, the community of Rust as well as nature and environmental experts, is making sure that these measures are thoroughly implemented.
2,000 trees, 18,000 bushes, and 60,000 flowers have been planted and a bee pavilion with 50,000 bees as well as a bat corridor have been built, allowing the animals to transition into the wood land.
Some more balancing measures for Rulantica are currently in the making: An adventure trail, a walking path, a family trail, a water trail as well as an environment-themed station will be built on the premises, in the following months and years.
The Rulantica premises - a newly built local recreation site, which follows the motto 'Environment meets Design', and combines effectiveness, aesthetics and sustainability.
