FGC Turisme wants to continue consolidating its commitment to sustainability, seeking a balance between economic profitability, social inclusion and respect for the environment.
The certifications of the Family Tourism, seal of all FGC Turisme ski resorts, promoted by ACT distinguish us as ski resorts especially sensitive to the demand of this segment.
The implementation of Environmental Management Systems based on the ISO 14001:2015 of the different FGC Turisme business units, certified by an accredited external entity, help us identify, control and minimize our environmental impacts.
Towards sustainable management
What is FGC Turisme's policy?

With the aim of leading sustainability initiatives in the tourism services and leisure sector of the Catalan Pyrenees, we remain concerned about minimizing our impacts on ecosystems, favoring the fight against climate change and the availability of natural resources in the operational control of our activities.
The Q for Tourism Quality is a certificate granted by the Spanish Tourism Quality Institute (ICTE) to those establishments that meet the requirements of the UNE 188002 Standard for "Ski and Mountain Resorts”.
