Magnificent, spectacular, unique… There are many superlatives to describe the Chamonix Valley he mythical peaks that surround it. Territory of past and future legends, the preservation of this natural jewel is more than ever a consideration integrated into all.
The Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley, holder of the Flocon Vert label since 2013, is committed to the ecological transition through 30 Actions and Objectives. Residents and visitors to the valley are also encouraged to actively participate in environmental protection, through a Guide of Good Environmental Practices. 90% of the territory are under protection measures « Espaces Naturels » and since 2012, the Chamonix Valley has been part of the Communities of Municipalities involved in the Atmosphere Protection Plan for the Arve Valley.
The Congress Office of the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley Tourist Office, the Majestic Congress Centre and their local partners are part of this effort to protect the environment and educate their customers.
Regardless of its size, an event is not exempt from environmental impacts. The Congress office proposes to put an environmental approach at the hearth of the organization of your event :
* Transport : systematic proposal of private public transport from TGV station or Geneva International Airport ; walking trips in Chamonix ; free public transport in the valley.
Why ? : to limit greenhouse gases
* Accommodation : our hotel partners have implemented eco-responsible actions (heating, lighting, selective sorting, water…)
Why ? : to value venues that are part of eco-responsible management
* Catering : restaurants and caterers offer mainly fresh, local and seasonal products.
Why ? : to value short circuits and local gastronomy
* Meetings in the Congress Center : spaces that meet technical and environmental requirements
Why ? : to plan meetings in a venue strongly committed to resource conservation
* Activities : our outdoor partners offer a wide range of activities aimed at raising awareness about environmental protection and global warming.
