It’s been half a year since the Race for Nature, our charity event marking the centenary of the Tschuggen Collection in the place where it all began: Arosa. From 16 to 18 March 2023, 16 sustainably-minded companies – including UBS, Ricola, ÖKK, BKW, Graubündner Kantonalbank, Die Mobiliar and Ringier Medien – competed in the Race for Nature ski race in aid of dedicated conservation organisations such as Protect our Winters, the Alpine Initiative, Aqua Viva, the Bruno Manser Fund and the Swiss Parks Network.
Participating teams were ably guided by world-famous ski stars including Maria Walliser Anesini, Erika Reymond-Hess, Brigitte Oertli, Didier Cuche and Mauro Caviezel as well as by young talent from the Arosa Ski Club. The result? Thanks to the generous support of our companies and the commendable efforts of all individuals, donations totalling CHF 355,795 were raised to support the projects of the NGOs. What follows is a small selection of the initiatives our NGOs were able to implement or further develop as a result of this support.
These projects demonstrate that our ongoing efforts to protect the environment are having vital real-world impact. We also recognise that we are just at the beginning. We look forward to many more projects to come!
