Reaching the highest level of sustainability at César Ritz Colleges Switzerland
Our mission, as a higher educational institution, is to shape the world’s future generations and to lead by example. We are convinced that sustainability is key for the future of the hospitality and tourism sectors. This is why we are proud to be members of Green Globe, the highest standard for sustainability worldwide. César Ritz Colleges Switzerland became a Green Globe member in 2019, and is now in the process of being certified. Our aim is to provide world-class education in hospitality and business, while at the same time managing our impact on the environment and teaching our students sustainability best practices they can apply to their future career.
We aim to reduce the use of resources and promote re-usage and recycling practices:
Establishing a purchasing policy including consumable goods
Reducing energy, water, green house, and gas emissions
Implementing a comprehensive waste management cycle to better plan and reduce waste
Engaging in the protection of the grounds surrounding the campus
“Sustainability is not about recycling cans and bottles. It’s about recycling our values and learning how to live differently. It involves acting now, and it involves acting on behalf of somebody other than just oneself.”
From “farm to table”, ingredients are better when handled with care every step of the way. On a visit to a local luxury caviar farm, our students get to know a whole new side of sustainability in the caviar business.
