At Six Senses Crans-Montana, we seek to push the boundaries of sustainability, from our approach to mindful architecture and efficient engineering, to local sourcing and unforgettable guest experiences.
The building operates at 30 percent reduced energy versus the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) baseline. Waste heat is captured from our cooling systems, pools, and kitchens, and re-injected into the heating system. Double-glazed windows reduce the need for heating in the winter, and ventilation in the summer. Exclusive use of LED lighting ensures the dual benefits of an extended life cycle, and reduced energy consumption.
The hotel features smart systems which prioritize our guests' physical well-being: Our class MERV-13 air filtration system ensures exceptional indoor air quality, and our pool filtration system is fitted with UV filters, reducing the need for chemical treatment by up to 50 percent.
All our electricity needs are met by green energy from the Swiss grid, most of which is hydroelectric, and 100 percent of our heating is powered by recovered carbon-neutral wooden pellets which ensure optimal temperatures within the hotel and pools.
Six Senses Crans-Montana manages the Sustainability Fund, financed by 0.5 percent hotel revenue, and soft toy sales, which go towards supporting diverse local environmental and social projects.
The Earth Lab is a space of innovation, featuring fun & quirky zero-waste workshops easily emulated back home, from upcycled candles made from used-kitchen oil, to flying seed bombs used to rewild our surroundings.

To support our environmental and social sustainability activities, we have introduced policies and procedures in line with Six Senses standards, which are renewed annually.
The region of Valais is an Eden of fruit production, thanks to abundant sunshine, water, and fertile soil. Today we enjoy a diverse selection of apples, pears, quinces, apricots, nectarines and more. Yet, many heritage varieties have been lost to time, with solitary individuals left to be rediscovered. Six Senses Crans-Montana has partnered with local horticulturalist and orchardist, Nicolas Lorétan, who is on a mission to identify, analyze, document, and propagate these fruiting tree to preserve our cultural heritage and promote genetic diversity.
Diversity in flora and fauna is vital to the health of our ecosystem. Ski tourism in the winter, and mountain sports in the summer can negatively impact our surrounding prairies. Through insect hotels and beehives, managed by local apiculturist Thierry Crettol, we give our insect friends a head-start to do what they do best – pollinate.
Six Senses Residences Crans-Montana employs people who live in the region, wherever possible.
The return of predators in our mountains signals a healthy ecosystem. Yet their presence can encroach on pastoral livelihood, creating a need for balance and dialog between conservation and shepherding. We have partnered with OPPAL (Organization Pour la Protection des Alpages) in training volunteer vigilantes who guard flocks at night, allowing shepherds to rest easy, and ensure a non-violent mitigation of wolf attacks. These individuals are equipped with the necessary tools to safely mediate a peaceful coexistence between humans and wolves. In addition, OPPAL shares their scientific findings on pack behavior with local authorities to assist the creation of legislation surrounding this topic.
