Reducing our ecological footprint
Since many years the Swiss Armed Forces is working to reduce the ecological footprint and sustain our planet. The Patrouille des Glaciers is not an exception. This ambition has been formalized with a strategy to reduce the impact on our climate. As a part of this strategy, analysis are conducted about carbon dioxide emissions caused by the PDG. Hereby all sources for carbon dioxide emissions are considered: all people and goods transports of the Swiss Armed Forces for the PDG, the private transports of spectators and athletes, food and beverages consumption or for example waste production.
