Off-setting our CO₂ emissions

We’re glad to announce that we have now joined the non-profit organization myclimate to off-set our carbon emissions.

What myclimate does?
Once a part of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, myclimate spun off as a non-profit organization, leading local and global projects to reeducate and restructure society with more sustainable actions, promoting effective manners to protect our climate.
You can learn more about them here if you wish to.

How are we helping?
From January 2020 we will be carbon off-setting every single skydive with a donation of CHF 6.40 to myclimate, which will support many climate protection projects around the world. Projects that we are helping to fund are projects of education, sustainability and effective protection of the environment, both local and globally.
Although our customers also have the option to make a donation upon booking, Skydive Interlaken will cover the full payment of the carbon fee associated with the whole jump.

Why have we joined? – A testimonial from Christian

Our social commitment

I grew up in the former glacier village of Grindelwald. I say former because unfortunately, due to rising temperatures it is not possible to see the upper and lower Grindelwald Glacier from the village anymore. Global warming is a reality, and here in the Swiss Alps, the effects are blatantly obvious.

Switzerland’s clean air, mountains, glaciers, lakes and forests draw people in from all over the world. Tourism is a big part of Switzerland’s economy, so we must think about the future and do all that we can to protect and preserve the environment.

The whole world is affected by climate change, and therefore everyone should be contributing to reducing/offsetting greenhouse gases. So, in hopes of lessening our carbon footprint, we have taken the opportunity to work with « myclimate », and offset our emissions with climate protection measures. From 2020, every Skydive Interlaken helicopter flight will be offset, at no extra cost to our guests.

As we make this contribution, we hope that we can lead the way and inspire other businesses in the industry to follow our example.
Skydive Interlaken believes in quality over quantity. This motto accompanies us in all of our actions, and being a small business means that we have the space to make this priority. We strive to give our employees the best possible working conditions so that their passion for skydiving and customer service can shine through. As soon as each guest walks into Skydive Interlaken, they can immediately feel the friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

So if you ever want to go skydiving, come to Skydive Interlaken. We will show you the beauty of Switzerland while giving you a bit of adventure at the same time.
We are a passionate, professional team, have the highest safety standards in the world and how you can see we act responsibly in all aspects.

POURQUOI NOUS CHOISIR?

Chez Skydive Interlaken, nous sommes fiers de vous proposer une ambiance conviviale et détendue tout en offrant une expérience unique. La seule façon de manœuvrer à travers vallées, glaciers et sommets montagneux est avec un hélicoptère et c’est la raison pour laquelle chez Skydive Interlaken nous choisissons de sauter depuis ce genre d'engins. Cela rend le saut très spécial et rare car il n’y a pas d’autre endroit dans le monde qui propose le saut uniquement depuis un hélicoptère.
