Haute Pursuit


OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT



January 2020

A FIRST STEP TOWARDS A BETTER FUTURE WITH OUR TRANSFER BUSINESS

 

Did you know that mountain ecosystems are highly sensitive to climate disruption, and those very ecosystems provide up to 85% of all water humans need, not to mention other species? Globally, glaciers contain 69% of all fresh water on the planet. The effects of climate change are being seen two-fold in the Alps compared to the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.

 

The rivers of the Alps currently provide fresh water for 170 million people, and the mountain water sources of this region, the Haute Savoie, feed into hydro-electric schemes that in turn provide enough power for 450,000 people’s annual usage – we have 400,000 people living in this region. Water is a precious resource and through climate disruption will become even more so. 

 

Why have we stopped supplying water in plastic bottles for our airport transfer business Haute Transfer?

 

As a transfer company we create a considerable carbon footprint, and with over 30,000 passengers a year (that’s a lot of plastic bottles), we have a responsibility to minimise our impact on the planet. Instead of offering water to our passengers in single use plastic bottles we now offer water from a reusable metal flask which passengers can decant into their own bottle or we supply cups made from the waste of industrial sugar processing, which can then be composted after use.

 

Did you know if we continue to use plastic at current rates across the globe there will be more plastic in the World’s oceans by 2050 than there are fish? 

 

Business founder, Charlie Charlesworth, commented. "With the removal of single use plastic water bottles from our business, we hope that all our passengers will in turn think how their daily lives impact the planet, and the many small ways they can make a positive impact on limiting their waste and how they consume."

 

While you are visiting the Chamonix valley, we kindly ask that you respect nature, and minimise your impact - leave no trace.

 
Dispose of or recycle all waste correctly while in the valley
Use shared transport or the public transport system wherever possible
Think twice about lighting a log fire in your chalet (we have serious pollution issues in this valley)
Don’t leave your waste on the mountain
Dispose of your cigarette butts properly
Consider planting trees to offset the carbon dioxide of your flight to the Alps
Above all be respectful of each other, our local environment and nature everywhere
