4 Green Key Eco-Rating
At Retallack, we do everything we can to preserve our planet’s precious alpine wilderness for future generations to enjoy. We believe it’s essential for the outdoor adventure industry to adopt measures that minimize its impact on the natural environment. And we think it’s important that holiday-makers have the option of choosing eco-friendly destinations.
Retallack is one of the greenest operations in the industry – not to mention among the most environmentally-aware accommodation you’ll find anywhere in Canada. In fact, Retallack Lodge is completely self-sufficient and “off-the-grid.” All of our power is supplied by our own hydroelectric plant.
In recognition of our efforts, Retallack was the first cat- or heli-skiing operation to be awarded four green keys from the Hotel Association of Canada’s Green Key Eco-Rating programme. The four-key rating is awarded to operations that show “national industry leadership and commitment to protecting the environment through wide-ranging policies and practices. Four Key recipients have mature programs in place that involve management, employees, guests, and the public, and which have shown substantial and measurable results.”
Retallack is also an Active Member of HeliCat Canada and adheres to its strict environmental operating guidelines.
