Local footprint

The socio-economic footprint of the Center Parcs in Moselle


A 2013 study carried out by Cabinet Utopies using the Local Footprint® tool has helped us to evaluate the wealth created in the local area by the Trois Forêts village in Moselle-Lorraine.

Taking into account things like the purchases needed for running the site, salary payments and cottage rent paid to local owners, as well as off-site guest spending and long-term job creation, it’s possible to estimate the boost to local GDP (Gross Domestic Product) generated by the village.
