Welcome to Vail, North America's Premier International Mountain Resort Community

Environmental Sustainability Policy

“The Town of Vail shall serve as a nationally recognized leader in sustainability through a commitment to community partnerships and balanced stewardship of human, financial and environmental resources in policy and daily operations.”

Environmental Sustainability Strategic Plan

The Town of Vail is committed to the stewardship and protection of our unique mountain environment. In consideration of both our local and global impacts and opportunities, our environmental vision is to demonstrate and promote:

  • Renewable Energy,
  • Resource Efficiency,
  • Ecosystem Protection, and
  • Community Awareness and Education

As employees of the Town, we work to continuously improve our Environmental Management System by finding ways to eliminate waste and prevent pollution before it happens. Through periodic audits, we assure compliance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations.

We address the broad scope of environmental impacts within our community by working closely with our partners, suppliers and community members to better understand and manage our combined impacts. And, to promote awareness within our community, we share information about our environmental performance. These actions confirm our commitment to environmental stewardship.
