Based in Morzine and inspired by the work of Surfers Against Sewage, Montagne Verte was launched in March 2019 with the initial aim of reducing the amount of plastic waste in the mountains. This has quickly developed into a wider mission to tackle other environmental issues affecting climate change, such as cleaning products, energy consumption and food waste.
Funded by the community it serves, this not for profit public benefit association aims to provide a resource that brings together information and support, and provide solutions for mountain residents, visitors and businesses to minimise their environmental impact and maximise their environmental potential. The organisation has secured funding to employ a full time Sustainability Director, whose brief is to work on behalf of the community to broker green deals for local businesses and facilitate the organisation's objectives.
