An­der­matt Re­spon­si­ble

Andermatt Responsible is the campaign for sustainable, climate-friendly tourism in the Andermatt region. Our aim is to facilitate tourism operations in a way that preserves resources. This is because we are convinced that it is in the interest of all of us to protect Switzerland’s mountain environment.

Climate and environmental protection

Andermatt Responsible means low impact: We operate our gondolas, snow-making equipment, ski lifts and hotels in a climate-neutral manner. We keep the consumption of resources as low as possible and reduce waste and our carbon footprint.
