Verbier Art Untold Association, the Swiss non-profit organisation that runs the Verbier Art Summit, has an environmental policy that asserts the positioning of the organisation and its activities to fulfill its commitments towards achieving a more sustainable future.
The policy outlines the Summit’s environmental values and principles which drive key decision-making and attainable actions also taken during the annual Summit event.
Living in today’s global climate crisis, the 2020 Verbier Art Summit aims to share insights of its expert guests and speakers to a wider audience, so as to encourage and drive positive environmental change and ultimately seek solutions through the medium of art. The 2020 Summit theme Resource Hungry: Our Cultured Landscape and its Ecological Impact directly resonates with the overall goal to drive environmental action. Beyond 2020, the Summit aims to continue demonstrating its commitment to these ambitions via a meaningful, respected leadership platform, which promotes education and global solidarity, as well as climate awareness through implication of best practices.
Through leadership, education and advocating global solidarity, the Summit aims to:
Undertake systematic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility;
Reduce overall climate impact where possible;
Educate greater awareness towards climate action;
Promote sustainable and responsible consumption; and
Implicate climate action through communication, dialogue, via the Membership platform and the annual Summit event.
The Verbier Art Summit aims to implement standards for adherence by the organization (via an action plan), its staff and to collaborate with partners or key stakeholders that similarly comply with sustainable protocols.
Summit sustainability and environmental action
As an integral part of our strategy and modus operandi, the Summit is committed to reducing its environmental impact and to continually improve its environmental performance, in particular regarding:
Verbier Art Summit event:
The Summit favours venues that use low carbon sources;
The Summit encourages caterers and local restaurant/hotel partners to provide vegan and vegetarian options favouring locally sourced providers. Since 2019, at least one of the two formal Summit dinners is vegetarian;
The Summit works towards minimising waste, using a ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ framework to minimise with every event the amount of waste that is produced (this includes reusable tote bags and other non-disposable material for our goodie bags);
The Summit engages with each venue to ensure that waste from the activities can be recycled as far as possible; and
Event materials are made from sustainable resources and can be recycled (this includes wooden sign posting and annually returning marketing material).
The Summit adheres to a responsible travel policy, focussing on less frequent travel and reduction of related emissions (this includes audio and video conferencing as preferred as communication modes to reduce travel);
The Summit offers travel alternatives respecting sustainability guidelines, including train travel as the recommended mode of transportation to any destination within 6 hours of travelling time. This applies to both Summit speakers as well as the Summit organisation; and
The Summit organisation uses public transportation, walking and cycling when possible, and does not cover taxi costs to airports, parking costs etc unless Summit material/luggage is involved.
The Summit organisation favours co-working spaces:
Zoku in Amsterdam (a Certified B Corporation), and
The Mountain Hub in Verbier;
The Summit favours digital marketing and communication; and
Documents, brochures and posters, as well as the Summit publication are printed on recycled paper when possible.
