Concept of sustainability

The association SwissCityMarathon – Lucerne aims to organise a sustainable event which may also exist in the future. This means that the three dimensions of society, economy and environment, in which the SwissCityMarathon is integrated, are considered equally and are taken into account.

The sustainability concept below shows, how the SwissCityMarathon – Lucerne can be carried out as an environmentally friendly event. In particular, unnecessary emissions such as waste, noise, water and air pollution are avoided as far as possible without neglecting social and economic aspects. Appropriate organisation and information should simplify environmentally friendly actions - creating offers, not prohibitions. The additional costs incurred should be affordable.
