Our Epic Promise For A Zero Footprint By 2030 - Update

A Message from Rob Katz:

Last week, we announced the Company’s Epic Promise For A Zero Footprint, and today I wanted to provide more context on the significance of this initiative for our Company, for the industry and for the environment.

Since last week’s announcement at Inside Edge, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from so many of you as well as great comments from a number of people outside the Company. I hope these comments resonate with you as they have with me as evidence that doing the right thing is always the right thing:

  • Al Gore, former U.S. Vice President and environmental enthusiast | Congrats @VailResorts for doing the right thing for our planet by committing to a zero footprint  #epicpromise2030 (Via Twitter on Tuesday, July 25)
  • John Hickenlooper, Colorado Governor | Wow-can always count on CO to lead the way on enviro stewardship but this raises the bar to a new level! Great job @VailResorts #epicpromise (Via Twitter on Tuesday, July 25)
  • Carl Pope, Climate of Hope co-author and former head of the Sierra Club | "It's the leadership of companies like Vail Resorts that recognize that this is good business and good for the environment that will truly make a difference in the world.”
  • Mindy Lubber, Ceres CEO and President | “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.”
  • L. Hunter Lovins, Natural Capitalism Solutions President and Founder | "Congratulations to Vail Resorts for making such a bold environmental commitment. When companies do right by the planet, they do right by us all. I particularly appreciate their creation of even more demand for renewable energy. Here’s hoping many companies are inspired by Vail Resorts and create their own ambitious commitments. It’s what the world needs now. It also happens to make great business sense.”

I also wanted to share that, with our commitment, Vail Resorts was accepted as the first travel and tourism company into the RE100. The RE100 is a collaborative initiative uniting 102 global, influential businesses committed to 100 percent renewable electricity. The initiative includes global sustainability and energy leaders like Apple, Ikea, Google, Facebook, Nike and Starbucks who are all collectively working to massively increase the demand for and delivery of renewable energy. The RE100 is truly a who’s who of the most respected companies in the world and the fact that we are on that list says a lot about who we are as a Company, and the “company” we keep. Click here to learn more about RE100.

While I hope you join me in feeling incredibly proud of this recognition, it’s also a reminder of how much work lies ahead. You will be hearing much more about our Epic Promise for a Zero Footprint in the months and years ahead and how you can help ensure the Company gets to these lofty goals. It’s exciting to think of the kind of global leadership we can demonstrate on this effort and I look forward to working with all of you to make this possible.
