Chamrousse resort has committed to a sustainable development approach with the award of the Flocon Vert label in 2017 and is looking to engage more specifically the professional actors of its territory.
The project of this charter is to raise awareness and enhance the value of the resort's professional actors (restaurant owners, accommodation providers, activity providers, etc.) who wish to be part of an ecological, sustainable and supportive approach.
Those already involved in a sustainable development approach can highlight what they are doing and those wishing to start can find ideas for actions to implement.
This approach is currently being tested in Chamrousse and may be developed in the coming years in other resorts with the "Flocon Vert" label.
