Global warming presents us with hard evidence of the Earth’s vulnerability in the face of humanity’s choices. It is the 21st century challenge that necessitates the invention of a new way of living, with the aim of drastically minimising our impact on the world.
The impact of global warming is particularly severe on our mountain environment: dramatic glacial melting, a reduction in snowfall, recurrent rock fall, and the destruction of animal and plant habitats. We must face up to these changes that present a huge challenge to adapt.
On 24 July 2021, our 200th birthday, we created a fund for the environment and mountain wildlife. Its mission is to support environmental initiatives to help make the Mont Blanc area a sustainable and attractive region to visit, and driving force for environmentally responsible behaviour.
