MADRID, 25 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The 39 ski resorts in the French Pyrenees have invested close to 40 million euros between 2020 and 2021 to tackle climate change. 48% of the investments have been allocated to the maintenance and improvement of the ski lifts, as well as the development of the innovation network to preserve fauna and the environment.
The fight against climate change, the reduction of the environmental impact and the adaptation of mountain activities to the new four-season model are the objectives of the investments made and planned in the future by this group of stations.
The four seasons model pursues a sustainable mountain tourism project for the next 20 years, as well as the creation of a network of places, activities and leisure around the mountain stations, with heritage sites, thermal baths and cultural events, among others.
Unanimously, all French ski resorts have opted for the environmental roadmap that includes 16 eco-commitments, aimed at preserving the mountain.
One of the goals set by ‘Domaines Skiables de France’ (DSF), the professional chamber of ski area operators, is to reduce the carbon footprint, with zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from 2037.
