Camper sales are growing, the share of caravans is falling

first_imgRELATED NEWS: Also, in addition to the 5 existing ones (Zaton Holiday Resort, Krk Premium Camping Resort, Valalta, Val Saline and Šimuni), This year, as many as 5 new Croatian camps received the ADAC Superplatz label (Aminess Maravea Camping Resort, Lanterna Premium Camping Resort, Omišalj, Baška Beach Camping Resort and Straško.), Thus entering the selection of the best leading European campsites by the ADAC. At the end of last year, a guide to German camps was presented ADAC for 2019 year in which the Croatian ones are also listed, a total of 129. ADAC: Average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3% One of the most significant development trends in the segment of “camping vehicles” is a significant increase in the share of camper sales and a simultaneous decline in the share of caravans.  Based on the processing and analysis of ADAC data, KUH points out that they can be more than satisfied with numerous positive indicators of the quality of the Croatian camping offer. Thus, the average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3%, the quality of camps by region is increasing (eg the highest growth is in the region of Šibenik, as much as + 14,3%!); while the campsites of Istria have the highest quality, with an average rating of 4,1 out of 5. At the national level, the selected best campsites were also awarded quality marks by the Croatian Camping Union – Croatia’s Best Campsites for 57 of them, and OK Mini Camps for them 41. CROATIA IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE RECOGNIZED BY WINTER CAMPING GERMAN ADAC CAMP GUIDE FOR 2019 PRESENTED As they point out from KUH, the mentioned trend must definitely point us to some of the determinants of the future development of our camping products, starting from differently equipped and size-appropriate pitches for modern campers, forming a “quick-stop” possibility within the camp, all the way to the necessary strong development of the network of continental camps and an even more significant increase in campsites that are open throughout the year.

PRI to tackle ‘fundamental’ legal questions about considering impact

first_imgAccording to the three organisations, a “third generation” of responsible investors was beginning to do so, with “pockets of excellence” emerging in technical understanding of integrating impact in investment decisions.The PRI said investors were increasingly considering “impact duties” such as decarbonisation targets, gender equality, or the impact of their investments on wider society.However, fundamental legal questions remained, including whether investors were legally required to integrate the sustainability impact of their investment activity in their decision-making processes, or whether there were any legal impediments to investors adopting “impact targets”.Another question, according to the project organisers, was “on what positive legal grounds could or should investors integrate the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals in their investment decision-making”.PRI, UNEP FI and The Generation Foundation will appoint a law firm to carry out the legal analysis work, which is scheduled to go on until the second quarter of next year.“In some jurisdictions, the legal analysis may find that there are legal impediments to incorporating sustainability impact, in which case the project will recommend policy change”‘A Legal Framework for Impact’ project overviewThe organisations indicated the study would look at how investors should manage their multiple duties – a fiduciary duty to integrate all financially material factors, including environmental, social and corporate governance factors, and their “impact duties” – within existing legal frameworks.“In some jurisdictions, the legal analysis may find that there are legal impediments to incorporating sustainability impact, in which case the project will recommend policy change,” they said.According to the project timeline, a reference group of experts from investment firms was due to have been set up during the first quarter of this year, but this has not yet happened and the project organisers are currently looking for members.The PRI said the group will help support the research by sharing policy developments, questions, concerns and information on the legal, regulatory and fiduciary implications of managing sustainability impact. The new project comes as EU lawmakers are negotiating over the European Commission’s sustainable finance action plan, a major policy initiative that seeks to harness the power of investors to, in the first instance, rein in man-made climate change.Last week the European Parliament and EU Council reached a political agreement on a regulation to create new categories of low-carbon benchmarks, one of three regulations put forward by the Commission last March. The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) has launched a project to address “fundamental legal questions” surrounding the consideration of investing activity’s impact on sustainability.The PRI is collaborating with the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and The Generation Foundation on the project, dubbed ‘A Legal Framework for Impact’.The organisations said assessing and accounting for the sustainability impact of investment decisions needed to become a core part of investment activity within the next decade.The project would involve preparing and publishing legal analysis as well as practical recommendations for investors seeking to make “sustainability impact” a core part of their activity.last_img read more
