How to obtain the Green Snowflake :

  • A public meeting took place in July 2022 to present the approach to the inhabitants and discuss with them the actions to be included in the Green Snow strategy.
  • The destination was the subject of a Green Snowflake" audit in October 2022 on the 2017 specifications by an independent auditor to assess the destination's level of commitment.
  • After analysis, the labeling committee composed of ADEME, Atout France, the Foundation for Nature and Mankind, the University of Savoie Mont-Blanc and Mountain Riders has delivered in November 2022 the label in Val d'Isère for a period of 3 years.

Next step:

A INTERIM AUDIT will take place in May 2024 to evaluate the implementation of the destination's Green Snowflake strategy. The analysis will focus on the 2022 specifications, an even more demanding standard, in line with the challenges of tomorrow.
