Commitment for the bears

The name of the Ursern Valley goes back to Romanesque origins and means as much as bear valley. And not without reason: until 1820 brown bears lived peacefully in the valley. But people perceived the brown bear as a danger, hunted it and exterminated it. The polar bear, a relative of the brown bear, could face a similar fate: its habitat is becoming increasingly scarce. The main cause is the melting of the pack ice, a direct consequence of global warming. In order to make an active contribution, the Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen supports the WWF together with its guests. Guests are invited to donate one franc upon departure.

Travel sustainably with the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway

The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway obtains a large proportion of its traction current from SBB on the 144 km long route network between Zermatt to Disentis and Andermatt to Göschenen. At least 90 % of the electricity is generated from renewable energies. The rest of the electricity required is sourced from RhB, and this electricity consists of 100 % renewable energy.

The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway offsets the proportion of traction current from non-renewable energy sources by purchasing Swiss hydropower certificates of origin. As a result, the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway ran on 100 % green traction current in 2020.

The locomotives/traction units of the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway are also equipped with recuperation brakes. This means that the surplus energy from a downhill journey is fed back into the overhead line network so that trains travelling uphill can absorb this energy again. For example, three trains travelling downhill on the route through the Schöllenen Gorge produce electricity for a train travelling from Göschenen to Andermatt.
