Consistent with the Six Senses commitment to sustainability, there are programs in place to conserve energy. Wherever possible, plastic bottles are replaced with glass ones, and we have recycling points for key cards and ski passes at the reception desk. You’ll also see our adorable mascot in each residence, a chamois aptly named Monty. All proceeds from soft toy sales go to our Sustainability Fund, which supports our partner NGO, One Tree at a Time. Find out more below.
To support our environmental and social sustainability activities we have introduced policies and procedures which are in line with our Six Senses standards and renewed annually.
We are delighted to partner with One Tree at a Time, a social enterprise focused on reducing textile waste in terms of the amount of ski uniform and clothing going to landfill. One Tree tackles these products at source to reduce the number of garments thrown away or exported abroad where they are hard to track – in fact, it means over 80 percent of donated products are kept in the local economy. By patching, replacing zips, and reworking designs, clothing can be upcycled into other garments and items. Any funds that are left over are used to plant trees in Africa.
Our mascot is Monty the chamois. You may have seen his family playing in the mountains around Courchevel. These mountain goats are under close conservation monitoring because of their importance to the mountain ecosystems, therefore protecting them is crucial. All proceeds from the sale of these soft toys helps to support research, conservation, and education efforts as well as our partner NGO, One Tree at a Time.
Energy efficient light bulbs and sensor activation are in place wherever practical to do so. Thermostatic settings are used in all residences when guests or owners are away for prolonged periods of time. Recycling points are located close to all entrances to the residences and waste reduction is actively encouraged with all guests and owners.
Six Senses Residences Courchevel employs people who live in the region, wherever possible.
In addition to a pollution solution, One Tree at a Time is focused on upskilling the local community in sustainable fashion and the art of textile repair to upcycle ski uniform and clothing into new garments and items. Funding from Six Senses helps employ more locals and create solutions to tackle the small amount of residual waste. It also enables the association to run a comprehensive workshop series for adults and children including repair classes, t-shirt printing, and upcycling lessons. These workshops are an important way of involving people in the solution.
We work with local service providers who have the same ethical standards as we have to source products and services which have no adverse environmental or social impact.
