The objective of Summit Foundation is to reduce the environmental impact of human activity in high traffic locations by proposing concrete solutions and awareness-raising methods, both to public bodies and to companies.

Created in 2001, Summit Foundation is an independent not-for-profit Swiss foundation recognized as promoting the public interest. 


The Foundation focuses its activities on 3 areas:

  • Enhancing awareness and education with respect to the environment: poster campaigns in ski resorts, learning game “Mission Dahu”
  • Developing concrete solutions: pocket waste bins, terminals for waste sorting, playful wall-mounted ashtrays
  • Organising waste collection operations: support for organisers of collection days, corporate volunteer actions, events for the general public

Sustainable Mountains

The sustainability program for ski resorts will be presented on Friday, October 20, 2023, during the Swiss Ski Lifts Forum in Davos.


Clean-Up Tour

Since its beginnings in 2001, Summit Foundation has been organising waste collection days in the mountains. The “Clean-Up Tour” brings these actions together under a single banner. The aim is to increase the impact of these actions by pooling them. Throughout Switzerland, ski resorts are inviting the public to sign up to clean up the mountains after the winter.
