tackling climate change
It’s not about continually doing less. It is about doing more, being more creative and more active.
We often overlook the combined effects of our actions. But it’s time to take action on our environmental responsibility.
We’re proud to be the first ski school to take the Protect Our Winters UK Pledge!
By committing to being Net-Zero by 2028, the 8-part framework of the pledge will helps us in tackling climate action.
Our entire industry relies on the continued existence of our winters, yet most of what we do has a negative impact on the world around us. Whether it’s the ski lifts, the plastic used in our jackets, or the way we travel to the resort.
Currently, we’re focused on reviewing our entire business operations and all the greenhouse gas emissions that we contribute to. We will then be systematically eliminating them so that we can hit our Net Zero target.
In the past, we’ve donated our old uniforms to refugees struggling with the winter temperatures across Europe.
However, we also had a large number of excess uniforms that were out of date, yet never worn! We knew it was our environmental responsibility to repurpose them, which is where our friends at One Tree came in. They’re giving our uniforms a second life and re-selling them. It’s really cool to see our uniforms back on the slopes, being loved and used by other snowsports enthusiasts.
We offset the environmental impact of the printing we do each winter via tree planting. It’s our environmental responsibility to offset our impact on the environment. So we’re pleased to say we’ve planted a tree grove with Trees for Life. We planted 17 trees in the Scottish Highlands, and we plan to continuously add to ‘our grove’ and watch it grow over time.
We’re also looking into not printing our marketing materials at all. Each winter we print brochures and flyers but digital materials could well be more useful. If you’d like to share your ideas or get involved in how we can be more sustainable in our industry, please get in touch below.
