Commitment to Zero Updates


As a company we are on track to reach our industry-leading Commitment to Zero goal to achieve a zero net operating footprint by 2030. Announced in 2017, the three pillars of this commitment include (1) zero net emissions by 2030 with 50 percent progress toward this goal by 2025, (2) zero waste to landfill by 2030 and increasing waste diversion to 50 percent by the end of 2020, and (3) zero net operating impact on forests and habitat. Key highlights from this year’s progress report include: 

Energy efficiency: During the 2018/19 season, we invested $2.4 million in energy efficiency upgrades that included snowmaking operations and switching to LED lighting. Collectively the impact of these upgrades means we have achieved 25 percent of our energy-efficiency goal.  

Waste diversion: We diverted more than eleven million pounds of waste from landfill over the last season through recycling and composting, allowing us to achieve 44 percent waste diversion – exceeding our target of 42 percent for the year. 

Reforesting habitat: By reforesting 10 acres on the Western slope of Colorado that had been impacted by the bark beetle, we 100% met our commitment to plant or restore an acre of forest for every acre displaced by our operations. 


Partners like Eco-Products and PepsiCo have championed these collective sustainability efforts throughout the year.   

PepsiCo has expanded its commitment to waste reduction and has implemented creative upcycling projects across the enterprise. PepsiCo, in partnership with international recycling leader TerraCycle, have created picnic tables and Adirondack chairs out of recycled snack and candy wrappers that they are collecting across five Vail Resorts locations.

In addition, Vail Resorts is eliminating all single-use, guest-facing conventional plastic products across its resorts, and Eco-Products is supporting these efforts to ensures all disposable food and beverage items like cups, utensils, grab-and-go containers are plant-based products that align with regional waste streams.
