Sustainability & Environment
Unser ökologischer Fussabdruck
Since the founding of the mountain school in 1985, sustainability has been an important part of our business foundation and anchored in our mission statement. Important projects in this context included certification as a climate-neutral mountain and ski school in 2009, the implementation of the ECOONE project to evaluate the sustainability of sports products for ispo in 2010, and in 2012 to the present day, our work as a shareholder in the "Model Municipality Electromobility" project in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is funded by the German government. In addition, we regularly promote and support social projects.
Together with industrial partners, we are committed to reducing environmental impact and are happy to refer to the efforts and projects of our partners, such as environmentally friendly production to the highest industrial standards in Germany at edelrid, Lowa, Völkl Ski, Ortovox or in the use of innovative, sustainable or renewable raw materials for The North Face or Aclima.
Since a large part of the "mountain sports CO2" is produced during the journey to and from the mountains, we support together with our Mobility partner Autohaus Hornung alternative mobility concepts. These include modern hybrid or electric vehicles such as the Mercedes EQC or offers to guests who travel to Garmisch-Partenkirchen by public transport and who can rent an (electric) Smart car there for € 19 per day.
