Since 2009, the parent organisation of the Verbier Institute (Botza) has organised several events focused on the environment (Verbier Investment Forum, International Mountain Day, & Green Pioneers Summit). The institute will build on Botza’s network and work, and focus on innovation for sustainability.
The Verbier Institute will organise stakeholder events and seminars for the public and private sectors to catalyse projects and innovate sustainability within their organisation. Examples:
- Global – Global conference on sustainability and innovating industries, finance and communities bringing the best thinkers and doers in their fields.
- Local – Events convening people and resources for particular projects on the ground (transportation, infrastructure, renewable energy etc…)
- Corporate – seminars to brainstorm, or innovate corporate sustainability within their organisations. (In conjunction with the Performance Center & the Impact Academy.)
