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.

The initiatives supported by the fund cover two main themes: awarness and protection. Examples of its work include establishing free teaching programmes, and supporting research and ecosystem restoration.
Funding for a free education programme to help children in the Chamonix and Saint Gervais les Contamines valley explore and learn about the mountain environment. Lead by guides, the ‘Understanding and Protecting the Mountains’ team teaches children every Saturday from March to June about the mountain environment.
