Tignes is the world’s first ski area to earn Green Globe certification thanks to efforts led by the area’s lift company, the STGM (Société des téléphériques de la Grande Motte).
In February 2015, the STGM started the process to comply with Green Globe standards. The ski area received official certification this September, an achievement made possible thanks to the hard work and implication of the STGM’s 290 employees.
