So synonymous with nature holidays, camping has long forgotten to say so. And for good reason, the natural environment is its nature!
For some years now, many campsites have been asserting their environmental approach through various actions and management choices, about which they even communicate to their customers. Campers themselves are increasingly aware of the "eco-gestures" of campsites.
More and more establishments are also entering into a labelling process, attesting to their efforts in the field of sustainable development. For example, the Clef Verte label now includes some 244 French campsites that have met the 118 selection criteria divided into 8 themes.
In the same vein, but at European level, the European Ecolabel (67 criteria in 5 themes; follow-up audit...) concerns 183 holiday establishments in France, including about fifty campsites.
See the list of campsites promoting the environment, with the Green Key or Eco Label.
If chains and groups of campsites are increasingly inclined to highlight their actions in favour of sustainable tourism and ever more respectful of the environment, some have made it their raison d'être and claim it loud and clear. Such as La Via Natura, Huttopia or Sites et Paysages.
