â€œIt is fantastic to see our collaboration with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort come alive with the winter event series,â€ says Chip Coe, CEO of TEKO. â€œWe have found a great partner in JHMR and their outstanding commitment to preserving the environment.â€
This partnership brings together two organizations with longstanding and successful environmental records. JHMR has long respected the natural beauty and ecological significance of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that surrounds it. The resort maintains a comprehensive environmental program that was developed in harmony with its environment. In 2006, JHMR achieved ISO 14001 certification, the second of only two ski resorts, and one of the smaller companies in the US, to achieve this recognition. ISO 14001 certification is the most widely known and respected environmental stamp of approval, which demonstrates responsible management of environmental impacts.
