Sustainability & Environment

Our ecological footprint

Since the mountain school was founded in 1985, sustainability has been an important part of our business foundation and anchored in our mission statement. Important projects in this context include 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 our involvement as a partner in the "Model Municipality for Electromobility" project in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is funded by the German government, from 2012 to the present day. We also 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, LowaVölkl SkiOrtovox 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.
