Greenhouse Gas Mitigation

We worked with Climate Neutral to measure and offset our carbon emissions in 2021, as well as identify ways to continue to reduce emissions in the future.

This is currently for our American locations only and we are working on including our Canada and European locations soon.

This process for setting actionable climate goals started included:

1. Measuring Our Carbon Footprint

Ski Butlers measured its 2021 carbon footprint at 691 tonnes. To arrive at this number, Ski Butlers looked at all of the emissions created from making and delivering our products/services, including employee commuting, business travel, and utility bills.

2. Making a Plan to Reduce Emissions

We created Reduction Action Plans to help lower our emissions over the next 12-24 months.

Reduction Measure #1: We will remove 10 light duty LPG vehicles from our fleet and introduce 5 new EV vehicles.

Reduction Measure #2: We plan to execute pilot programs to encourage employee commuting through public transit, ride-share or other multi-modal options.

3. Offsetting Unavoidable Emissions

We offset these emissions by purchasing 691 verified carbon credits. This is the equivalent of offsetting 1,715,204 miles driven by an average gas-powered vehicle. These carbon credits supported a portfolio of projects including an EV Charging Offset project in California through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation and a Texas based Wind Farm through

Divesting from Fossil Fuels

Here at Ski Butlers we are actively working to reduce emissions across business operations and have taken some big strides over the last decade. Our progress includes transitioning our business vehicles to electric, reducing employee commuting, and installing solar panels on buildings we own. But perhaps the biggest change we made was divesting from JP Morgan and Fossil Fuels in 2021.

Team Member Education

We are constantly educating, empowering and incentivizing our team members to help us achieve our sustainability goals. By employing hundreds of individuals from around the country, we are able impact not just the ski industry, but also the people within it.

Advocacy & Policy

Since 2010, Ski Butlers’ CEO Bryn Carey has personally worked with Protect Our Winters to advocate for better climate policy. Ski Butlers also participated in POW’s ​“I am Pro Snow” campaign by working with the town of Park City, Utah to commit to Net Zero by 2022.

Community Partners & Philanthropy

We believe that mountain towns have the ability to be a part of the climate change solution. As such, we’ve worked to measure our emissions and set actionable goals to be Net Zero across our business by 2030, and to help create and implement Net Zero plans for the mountain towns we operate in. Our journey actually started a decade ago when Ski Butlers owner Bryn Carey connected with Jeremy Jones from Protect Our Winters.
