Framework of engleberge Tourism.
Stakeholder of engleberge.
Where ????? 2012-2013
Engelberg Tourist destination
  • Engelberg is a resort town and municipality in the
     canton of Obwalden in Switzerland. Besides the
    town of Engelberg, the municipality also includes
    the settlements of Grafenort, Obermatt and Schwand
  • History of Engelberg
  • Engelberg is first mentioned as Engilperc in
    1122, when the Abbey was first founded there,
    although the mountain pasture of Trübsee was
    already exploited collectively before this time.
  • Transport of Engleberg.
  • The municipality of Engelberg is served by two
    stations on the LuzernStansEngelberg line. 
  • Engelberg station is located within the resort of
    Engelberg and is the terminus of the line. 
  • Grafenort station lies to the north, one station
    down the line. Both stations are served by
    hourly Inter Regio trains from the city of

  • Geography of Engelberg
  • Engelberg has an area of 74.8 square kilometers.
    Of this area, 28.5 is used for agricultural
    purposes, while 24.5 is forested. Of the rest of
    the land, 3.1 is settled (buildings or roads)
    and the remainder (43.9) is non-productive
    (rivers, glaciers or mountains).

  • Demographics of Engelberg
  • Engelberg has a population (as of 31 December
    2012) of 3,989. As of 2007, 21.0 of the
    population was made up of foreign nationals. 
  • Over the last 10 years the population has grown
    at a rate of 7.1. Most of the population (as of
    2000) speaks German as their mother tongue
    (88.2), with Serbo-Croatian being second most
    common ( 2.5) and English being third ( 2.2).
  • As of 2000 the gender distribution of the
    population was 49.9 male and 50.1 female. As of
    2000 there are 1,650 households in Engelberg.

  • Tourism of Engleberg.
  • The ski terrain is largely for advanced skiers,
    and although there are some easy places to ski,
    beginners should be wary of some challenging
    pistes. It is a snow-sure ski resort, with an
    unusually long season, generally opening for
    skiing at the start of October and remaining open
    until the end of May.
  • Business and industry
  • There are 320 local businesses which employ 1700
    people. 11 of these are in the agricultural
    sector, 14 in trade and industry, and 75 in
  • Engelberg has an unemployment rate of 1.22. As
    of 2005, there were 176 people employed in the
    primary economic sector and about 65 businesses
    involved in this sector. 227 people are employed
    in the secondary sector and there are 36
    businesses in this sector. 1,295 people are
    employed in the tertiary sector, with 186
    businesses in this sector. Due to the risks of
    filming in the disputed region of Kashmir, many
    Bollywood films requiring a Kashmir/snowy
    mountain setting are filmed in Engelberg.

Sustainable policies in engleberg.
  • Igloo Village In Engelberg.
  • This igloo village is located most beautifully at
    the Trübsee. Located at an altitude of 1800
    metres, this village makes you feel like the
    first human being in the mountains.
  • No stray light keeps the stars from competing
    with the ice crystals for the best glitter. At
    daytimes, discover the new snowXpark with
    electric snow bikes and paragliding.
  • Some get married in igloo village. Monasteries
    and igloos have got more in common than you might
    expect The Showcase cheese factory at the
    Engelberg monastery presents carefully handmade
    edible cheese in igloo shape and the monastery
  • The cheese is highly appreciated by the igloo
    guests and monastery visitors alike. A pastry
    shop in Zermatt bakes yeast-raised pastries with
    icing the so called igloo bun

Engelberg Green factor
  • Recycling
  • All resorts offer recycling facilities to guests,
    either within their accommodation and/or
    at special recycling points, which are hopefully
  • Waste reduction policy
  • The influx of winter guests to ski areas tends to
    bring an influx of, what's politely termed 'waste
    water', to the mountains as thousands of guests
    use the toilets on the mountain and bathroom in
    their accommodation.
  • The most environmentally forward thinking ski
    areas are using techniques such as composting to
    reduce waste from mountain restaurants. In some
    areas purified wastewater is also being used for
    snowmaking, on the one hand an eco friendly
    measure as it recycles

  • Traffic Reduction Policy
  • Traffic reduction can take many forms. Several
    Swiss resorts and a few in other countries have
    banned cars altogether for decades. Some have
    never had cars on their streets.
  • Other approaches include pedestrianized centres
    and out-of-centre car parking with resort centre
    access only on foot or by public transport
    - hopefully, electrically powered buses.
  • These, along with expensive and/or severely
    restricted resort centre parking, and an
    efficient free and cheap bus service, all help to
    reduce traffic problems and thus cut emissions.

  • Green Building Policy
  • In Engleberg ,Ski resorts are increasingly
    looking at minimising the environmental impact of
    their construction projects, as well as the
    impact of newly erected buildings and other
  • Having a green building policy means resorts put
    environmental concerns at the top of the when
    working on new projects.
  • This can include a myriad of things from using
    helicopters to reduce the damage to surrounding
    land when building in sensitive areas, to using
    natural, local materials for building and looking
    for maximum insulation and minimum power
    requirements, ideally supplied in as eco-friendly
    a way as possible.

Grey Water Treatment.
  • Grey water  is defined as waste water generated
    from wash hand basins, showers and baths, which
    can be recycled on-site for uses such as WC
    flushing, landscape irrigation and constructed
    wet lands
  • They also recycle grey water (e.g. water used
    for baths or washing clothes), by cleaning it and
    then using it to water the garden

Sludge Dewatering
  • Sludge Dewatering treatment plant in Engelberg.
  • In 1967 the waste water treatment plant (WWTP)
  • The generation of electricity from the treated
    waste water
  • Power Generation and Biogas Plant.
  • Converts the Biogas produced during the sewage
    treatment process into electrical energy.

Possible sustainability in engleberg.
POLICIES .may apply to Engleberg.
  • Eco-tax taxes intended to promote ecologically
    sustainable activities via economic incentives.
    e.g. taxes on human labor and renewable
  • Environmental tariff known as a green tariff
    or eco-tariff, is an import or export tax placed
    on products being imported from, or also being
    sent to countries with substandard environmental
    pollution controls.
  • Net metering it is a policy designed to foster
    private investment in renewable energy. In the
    United States, as part of the Energy Policy Act
    of 2005, all public electric utilities are
    required to make available upon request net
    metering to their customers.
  • Environmental pricing reform EPR is the process
    of adjusting market prices to include
    environmental costs and benefits.
  • Pigovian tax A Pigovian tax is a tax applied to
    a market activity that is generating negative
    externalities (costs for somebody else). The tax
    is intended to correct an inefficient market

CONCEPT Possibly Apply in Engleberg.
  • Green accounting Green accounting is a type of
    accounting that attempts to factor environmental
    costs into the financial results of operations.
  • Green economy The green economy is one that
    results in improved human well-being and social
    equity, while significantly reducing
    environmental risks and ecological scarcities
  • Green trading Green trading encompasses all forms
    of environmental financial trading, including
    carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide (acid rain),
    nitrogen oxide (ozone), renewable energy credits,
    and energy efficiency .
  • Eco commerce Eco commerce is a business,
    investment, and technology-development model that
    employs market-based solutions to balancing the
    worlds energy needs and environmental integrity.
  • Environmental enterprise An environmental
    enterprise is an environmentally
    friendly/compatible business.
  • Fiscal environmentalism
  • Environmental finance
  • Renewable energy

  • Renewable energy commercialization involves the
    deployment of three generations of renewable
    energy technologies dating back more than 100
  • E.g... The wind, Sun, and biomass are three
    renewable energy sources.
  • Marginal abatement cost MAC curves cover
    emissions reduction opportunities across a number
    of sectors in an economy including power,
    industry, waste, buildings, transport,
    agriculture, and forestry.
  • Green paradox The Green Paradox describes the
    fact that an environmental policy that becomes
    greener with the passage of time acts like an
    announced expropriation for the owners of fossil
    fuel resources, inducing them to anticipate
    resource extraction and hence to accelerate
    global warming.
  • Green politics Green politics is a political
    ideology that aims to create an ecologically
    sustainable society rooted in environmentalism,
    social justice, and grassroots democracy.
  • Pollution haven hypothesis The pollution haven
    hypothesis posits that, when large industrialized
    nations seek to set up factories or offices
    abroad, they will often look for the cheapest
    option in terms of resources and labor that
    offers the land and material access they require

CARBON RELATED ..(CO2 emission)
  • Following are the few well proved theory that
    we can apply to control and measure co2 emission
    in environment and make it sustainable.
  • Low-carbon economy
  • Carbon neutral fuel
  • Carbon neutrality
