The first rafting and outdoor center in Italy with ISO 14001 certification

Nature and sustainability at the center of our choices

Ursus Adventures on 1 July 2021 managed to obtain a very important certification that made it the first ISO 14001 certified rafting and outdoor center in Italy, a certification stating that the Organization has an adequate management system to keep the impacts under control environmental aspects of its activities and systematically seeks improvement in a coherent, effective and above all sustainable way.

The center is divided into three locations in Val di Sole. The first is in Ossana, the heart and headquarters from which most of the activities start, the second is in Mezzana, at the Trento-Malè railway station, a low-impact building environmental and strategic hub for sustainable and intermodal mobility combining rail and bike, the third is at Lake Santa Giustina.

In the two locations you can breathe and experience how much the outodoor Ursus Adventures center cares about nature and sustainability through all the experiences and services offered in which the natural elements are valued, respected and at the center of the outdoor proposals: rafting, bushcraft, hydrospeed , natural yoga, forest bathing, astrotrexperience, tandem paragliding, wildlife watching, ebike and mountain bike, trekking routes, via ferrata, canyoning, tarzaning, canoeing in the lake of S. Giustina in Val di Non, archery, orienteering , fishing adventure, ice climbing, ski mountaineering, snow walking and winter ebike.

Ursus Adventures has decided to undertake and obtain ISO 14001 certification to learn about its effects on the environment and continue to improve the tourist and experiential offer for its guests.

What is the message we want to launch by obtaining the ISO 1400 certification?

It is a simple and important message: “ we are nature and we must reconnect with it starting from the experiences we have; on vacation we are naturally more receptive and open to the new, the unprecedented and safe adventure and this is good for the spirit and body and as well as for nature itself “.

So he decided to certify his good work towards the environment to safely experience all the beauty of nature and be “light” towards the environment. Ursus Adventures is also among the signatories of “ The Clean Outdoor Manifesto “, a project that brings together practitioners and professionals of outdoor activities to give this reality a boost of ecological awareness, but the center is also very interested in communicate its commitment to the environment to its customers

Passing from the word to the facts, here is the usefulness of an ISO 14001 certification

iso14001La certificazione ISO 1400 è una norma internazionale ad adesione volontaria che consente alle aziende e agli enti che desiderano ottenerla di dotarsi di un Sistema di Gestione Ambientale (SGA) che, in conformità con le normative vigenti, permette di migliorare le proprie performance ma diventando sempre più sostenibili per l’ambiente.

What are the advantages?

First of all, a better relationship with the environment . This is done through the implementation of a system aimed at reducing pollution, emissions and waste production; reduce the consumption of energy, water and natural resources; implement a systematic approach to response to environmental emergencies.
In addition, a company can derive indirect benefits by communicating continuous improvement towards the environment to stakeholders, demonstrating that it is listening to what is happening on the planet and how each organization can do its part.

Finally, a management tool such as ISO 14001 allows you to more carefully monitor costs and investments for the future and manage business risk which is made up of multiple aspects and on which it is good to always be updated and aware. In conclusion, Ursus Adventures has shown that it is a sensitive and proactive reality towards the environment, transforming this attention into concrete actions. The hope is that it is a beginning and that many others will follow this virtuous and significant example!

Ursus Adventures commitment to the environment:

  • Our bar is plastic free. We have eliminated plastic bottles using only glass and aluminum, materials that can be easily recycled.
  • The products with which we clean spaces are environmentally friendly. We select them carefully and use them sparingly.
  • We use local products. Here you will find a selection of cold cuts, cheeses, wines and local beers that express our “genius loci”.
  • We source from local suppliers. We think it is right to give back to the territory what it gives us.
  • We practice careful separate collection. You will find colored bins with indications of what to diversify in 3 points of the Center.
  • We have chosen to establish our second headquarters in the Mezzana station because we believe rail mobility is very important and to be enhanced in order to reduce
    the impact of CO2 production on the environment.
  • The external pond uses water pumped directly into the groundwater from a well 15 meters deep and then returns it to the river Noce.
  • To sanitize we use alcohol-based products and ozone, a totally ecological gas.
  • We only use energy from renewable sources.
  • Our structure is eco-sustainable. The buildings were built in wood by local craftsmen.
  • We have chosen to use an awning for outdoor spaces in order to reduce the built-up area and once the summer is over, remove it to leave space for greenery.
  • We use vehicles for travel during the activities which are all “euro 6” and we intend to buy an electric vehicle.
  • When you participate in the activities and experiences we have created for you, you must share our philosophy: “Respect for the territory”.
  • Get in touch with nature, get ready to listen to it without putting it at risk, and you will be able to understand the true and profound meaning of the word “Adventure”.
  • Help us to contribute with your responsible action to the maintenance of the magnificent ecosystem that hosts us.
