  • GREEN AMUSEMENT PARK CERTIFICATION

    WHAT IS THE “GREEN AMUSEMENT PARK CERTIFICATION” AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

    Increasingly spectacular amusement rides, more and more complex technologies – the amusement industry is constantly engaged in a battle of superlatives. However, the negative side-effects are rising energy consumption, landuse and emissions. To stay competitive in times of high energy costs, increasingly scarce resources and growing environmental awareness, amusement park owners need to address the subject of sustainability.

    To support amusement park owners in facing this challenge, TÜV SÜD has developed the "Green Amusement Park" certificate. "Green Amusement Park" certification is a landmark instrument for cost-efficient assessment, improvement and documentation of the sustainability of your amusement park. Certification focuses on the buildings and amusement rides and their technical equipment together with various ecological factors, paying special attention to the following aspects:

    • The energy efficiency of the amusement park, and its rides and buildings in particular
    • The use of energy from renewable sources
    • The conceptual design of the buildings and the quality of building services equipment
    • Location-related factors
    • Transport development planning
    • Water, waste water and waste
    • Soil, contamination
    • Flora and fauna
    • Sanitation and health
    • Hotels, restaurants, snack bars and cafeterias
