Perisher Zero Waste Roadmap
Perisher is a part of Vail Resorts and the Epic Promise Commitment to Zero, which delivers on three areas by 2030; zero net emissions, zero waste to landfill and zero net impact to forestry and habitat. Edge (in partnership with Futuregiving) aimed to establish current waste data collection and reporting practices, identify infrastructure gaps and map future areas for improvement via a 2030 roadmap. The project identified and built on the enthusiasm of existing staff and worked on a strategic level to allow these leaders the bandwidth to implement new ways of reducing waste from operations. The project led to the retrofit of a key resort food service area with all reusable serveware, identified new avenues to attract government funding and unified a vision of what zero waste looks like amongst managers and staff.
