Environmental monitoring of building work
All building work carried out by Zermatt Bergbahnen AG, and also restoration and replanting work, is monitored by a scientifically trained specialist. In addition to compliance with the environmental legislation, the goal is to carry out the work as carefully as possible in a manner that will remain effective over the long-term. The monitoring of the construction work is instructive for the building personnel, and makes them more aware of environmental processes; it also ensures that the guests are informed about the environmental considerations.
If construction work is being carried out by an external contractor, the latter will be informed regarding the specifications for environmentallly friendly work from the very start, and in particular about the protection of the soil. They risk hefty penalties if these specifications are not followed.
