In line with the values of the Mérieux Foundation, Les Pensières Center for Global health is committed to global health. Inseparable from the commitment to protect our planet and its inhabitants, this duty places man and nature at the heart of its concerns.
Being receptive to the environmental and societal concerns of today, we wish to carry out our activity respecting nature and people, and to contribute to a more just, fairer, and greener world.

OUR DAILY COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND RESPONSIBLE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
At Les Pensières, we have the opportunity to grow and develop in an exceptional natural environment, between lake and mountains. These surroundings have undoubtedly contributed to the success of the conferences we host.
Looking after the environment is the commitment of all the team at Les Pensières. Haut-Savoyard through and through, by birth or by adoption, our equal (8 men; 8 women) and multicultural team is involved every day in promoting and preserving the region, each person aiming to reduce their carbon footprint.
Since 2014, we have worked with the APEI association based in Chambéry, which prints our notepads on paper from eco-managed forests and offers work to people living with a disability. Similarly, the local social reinsertion firm Seforest looks after our green spaces.
