Perisher’s Commitment to Zero – Update

As part of Perisher’s Epic Promise goal of zero waste to landfill we have taken on board the help of a team of waste consultants from Future Giving.  Over the year they will be assisting us in improving our methods of measuring waste, developing processes within the resort that will reduce waste and provide us with contacts from the industry who have valuable knowledge and experience in zero waste.  Frasers Property Australia who are developing a zero waste shopping centre in Melbourne, and the Vice President of Sustainability from the University of California who rolled out a zero waste strategy across 10 campuses are some of the contacts available to us.

The consultant’s knowledge and experience in this field will be a great assistance to us. We are excited for the year ahead and hope to make great strides towards our zero waste goal.  Our aim for this year is to go beyond baselining our waste measurements to include accurate measurement processes using new technologies and practices while incorporating successful known methods for reducing our waste to landfill for the upcoming year.

Podcast - From Eco-Terrorism to Environmentalism

In the 20 years since Vail Mountain was subject to a fire-bombing attach by eco-terrorists, Vail Resorts have undergone a metamorphosis to one of the leading environmental companies in the world. In this third podcast episode we are exploring the impact of the arson attack, our first forays into wind credits and why we eventually switched to forest fire restoration, the criticism we received for the political donations by our Political Action Committee, the acquisition of Whistler Blackcomb and the formulation of our Commitment to Zero, to what the future holds.

You are encouraged to take the time to listen to this and other podcasts in this series as these stories are a fantastic way to learn about the company and the people who make it what it is today.
