ESG managementPart of our corporate strategy
In the Andermatt Swiss Alps Group, sustainability is a priority topic and is embedded in the corporate strategy. Social and environmental concerns are integrated to the same extent as responsible corporate action.
Sustainability is one of the areas of emphasis in our companies. In 2020, a position was created for ESG management, and along with it the basis for sustainability management within the entire corporate groups. In October 2022, the Andermatt Responsible Board was launched, a body within the Andermatt Swiss Alps Group and Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG that is responsible for strategically embedding ESG topics. In 2023 the Board has conducted a materiality analysis for the corporate groups in order to create a solid basis for ESG management.
