Our responsibility for the environment

Sustainability is a natural part of us, our company and our business concept.

In our sustainability work, we work with our impact on our entire environment.

As early as 2001, the Branäs Group switched to fossil-free electricity from renewable sources. Since then, we have taken many steps forward, but we see it as a continuous journey and are always looking for the next exciting step.

Branäsgruppen

Within the Branäs Group, we always have a sustainability perspective when we design and develop our facilities. It all started with the expansion in Branäs where we realized the importance of accommodation that is ski in - ski out. Not using the car on vacation is not only relaxing and economical but also sustainable.
We have then brought the mindset of all service functions on foot/ski distance here to Kungsberget and Vallåsen.
Due to our size, we can make investments that would not have been financially sustainable at our smaller facilities.

This season, we are investing heavily throughout the Group in becoming more environmentally friendly. Today we have the majority of our meetings via digital meeting places and only use flights when there are no other alternatives. The whole group of course has a collective agreement and we have zero tolerance for bullying and discrimination.

Kungsberget

The first lift up the mountain was built in 1954, but enthusiasts must have skied down Kungsberget long before that. Kungsberget was co-owned for a long time by the municipalities of Gävle and Sandviken and then completely owned by the municipality of Sandviken. In 2004, the Branäs Group acquired the facility. In Kungsberget, families with children are at the center and this means for us, also a thought about the future and the environment. That's why you ski in a facility that is heated by rock and district heating, which is piste with HVO diesel and which serves coffee and dairy products that are both fair trade and organic.

Kungsberget belongs to Branäsgruppen, Sweden's largest privately owned ski resort company. The group includes Kungsberget, Branäs and Vallåsen.
