Elite Exped passionately believes the mountains are there for everyone to enjoy, but must always be respected and protected. On expedition, we are considerate and committed to preserving the natural wonder these majestic environments hold.
We are all too aware of the destructive nature many commercial expeditions have had on the mountains and the knock-on effects to the communities within them. This is not our way, Elite Exped strongly believes and follows ‘Clean as you go’ and ‘Leave no trace’ policies and insists all its climbers and guides comply with the environmental rules, regulations and guidelines.
All team members are well-trained and educated in the environmental issues regarding mountaineering and climbing, from the proper disposal of garbage to the recycling of oxygen cylinders, to name a few. In addition we actively operate with a Recycle, Re-use & Improvisation (RRI) approach to expedition equipment whenever appropriate.
