The Starling Hotel Lausanne is glad to collaborate with the « Summit Foundation », an environmental foundation based in Switzerland.
“I was lucky enough to eat in your restaurant with this incredible view from the terrace. All of a sudden, the common point makes sense between your activity at the Starling Hotel Lausanne and ours at Summit Foundation.” – Olivier Kressman, environmental advisor
This swiss foundation was founded in 2001 in Vevey by Laurent Thurnheer. With the help of his two collaborators, Olivier and Florine, their mission today is to reduce the environmental impact of human activities.
This NGO mainly focuses on ski resorts in winter and music festivals in summer (Paleo, Montreux Jazz Festival). Summit Foundation focuses on the natural environment because it is easier today to educate people by sending them environmental messages during a moment of relaxation such as skiing or during a festival between two concerts.
They work in very busy places. In Switzerland they could estimate more than 20 mio days of ski which represents tons of waste every winter.
