The Green Group would like to thank the nearly two-hundred AC members who contributed to our recent survey on climate change. As well as helping us to establish the position of the membership on this issue, your many suggestions and details of your personal environmental projects have given us an excellent starting point as we decide where to focus our work in the coming years.
You can read a summary report of the results here and we will feedback a more in-depth analysis in the coming months.

Not only does travel form a key component of climbing, and particularly exploratory mountaineering, but the effects of climate change are also acutely felt in the mountain regions that we visit.

To assist members and the wider mountaineering community to make more sustainable decisions about travel, we have produced a guidance document which lays out some key principles and offers a number of helpful resources. We hope this document provides a useful starting point for those who are looking to reduce their environmental impact.
