Promoting the local

Local Engagement

No hotel is an island. Anchored in Zermatt and the alpine region comes with a social and ecological responsibility. CERVO takes this into account by focusing on the local.

Why stray into the distance? The surroundings of Zermatt have incredibly much to offer. That is why CERVO has set itself the goal of sharing and supporting the regional characteristics with its guests. This not only ensures an authentic experience of the region, but also avoids long transport routes and the waste of resources. The rule of thumb is a distance of 150 kilometers from where we source our products for kitchen, equipment or services.

The mostly long-term cooperation
are based on the relationship of trust that arises from direct, personal exchange. We have known our farmers for years. For all products outside this framework, we have chosen sustainable companies. Their social or ecological commitment leaves a positive impact on the environment.

Community is what makes the CERVO special
and the connection to the community in Zermatt is important to us. In addition to supporting local initiatives, we also set up our own projects: once a month a soup table and a vegetable market takes place regularly, as well as our annual Sustainability Day. In this way we bring CERVO’s nature-oriented way of thinking to the people and get in touch with those who share this spirit.
