Zero net emissions by 2030.
Zero waste to landfill by 2030.
Zero net operating impact to forests and habitat.
The environment is our business, and we have a special obligation to protect it. As a growing global company so deeply connected to the outdoors, we are making a commitment to address our most pressing global environmental challenge and protect our local communities and natural resources.
Rob Katz, Executive Chairperson, Vail Resorts
Our most significant opportunity for making a measurable impact on climate change exists within our own operations as we strive to reduce our environmental footprint. We plan to achieve zero net emissions by doubling down on energy efficiency, purchasing 100 percent renewable energy and investing in programs such as tree planting.
By improving our recycling and composting program, engaging with vendors to reduce packaging and source recyclable and compostable products, and working with our local communities to increase options for reuse and diversion, our goal is to reach a point where no waste goes to a landfill.
To protect the beautiful environments we operate in, we are expanding our commitments to ensure the health and resilience of forests and habitats, such as planting an acre of forest for every acre of forest displaced by our operations, and expanding our partnerships with local organisations focused on the health of our forests and habitat.
At Falls Creek and Vail Resorts, respect for the environment is deeply embedded in our DNA, and why we have spent more than a decade looking for ways to reduce our energy use and our impact on the environment. This commitment takes our existing efforts a step further by committing to a more ambitious, comprehensive goal that will require all of us to achieve.
We applaud Vail Resorts for their bold leadership and commitments that will help safeguard and accelerate the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. We are also thrilled to welcome Vail Resorts to the Ceres BICEP Network and look forward to working with them as they become a more powerful voice for stronger climate and clean energy policies.
