Sustainability on the Pizol Railway

The natural world is close to the heart of Pizol Railway, and so it’s very important to us that we act responsibly, sustainably and respectfully in everything that we do. Together with our partner, myclimate, and as part of the ‘cause we care’ initiative, we are committed to the considerate and sustainable handling of nature and the environment.

Cause We Care - Together for Climate Protection and Sustainability

Careful use of resources to protect the environment is important to us. You can support us in this: As part of the myclimate "Cause We Care" initiative, we give you the opportunity to make an effective contribution to climate protection and sustainability with a voluntary contribution together with us.

With CHF 0.50 per cableway ticket and CHF 5.00 on the annual or season pass, you support our sustainability measures and offset the CO2 emissions of your mountain experience. In return, we promise to double the contribution. Part of the sum will be used to support high-quality international carbon offset projects of the myclimate foundation. The remaining amount will be invested by us in sustainability measures on site or in operational sustainability. You can also make a contribution by consuming the delicious Green Burger and buying gift vouchers or the multifunctional scarf from the fan store.

Together we care for the environment so that you and future generations can enjoy our nature.
