Objective 2 : Positive Biodiversity


What is biodiversity?

It is the living fabric of our planet. It includes all natural environments and life forms (plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, etc.) as well as the interactions between organisms and their living environments. We, humans, belong to a species constituting one of the threads of this fabric.


The objective of positive biodiversity is achieved through the following actions:
– Reducing our impact on natural environments,
– Protecting sensitive zones,
– Restoring damaged ecosystems,
– Raising awareness among our employees and clients of the importance of preserving biodiversity.

Find out more about our resources and actions to achieve this second objective!

What is the Environmental Observatory?

The Grand Massif Domaines Skiables set up its Environmental Observatory in 2007, one of the first in France for a ski area.

It acts as an indicator as to the state of biodiversity, landscapes, geology and agriculture in our territory.

It enables us to observe and understand our environment so that we can limit our impact on it and implement positive actions.

You can see some of the results here:
- The landscape integration of our work sites: results.
- The conservation status of natural environments: results.

A tool to measure and limit soil artificialisation in our territory!

The "Impact Sol" tool enables us to draw up an inventory of the land use index in the ski area and assess the impact of our future projects.

This methodology encourages us:
- To think about the medium- to long-term impact of our projects
- To think about compensatory measures early on in the process.
- To stay within existing developed sites as closely as possible.

ACTIONS already taken

- Sensitive areas for overwintering birds are marked out. For example, black grouse and ptarmigan..

- Reforesting damaged forests in our territory: reforestation of the Magland and Nancy-sur-Cluses forests.

- Replanting work sites: use of local compost, selection of suitable seed mixes, seed harvesting within the ski area.

- Wetland restoration.

- A management plan for the natural environment in Flaine.
