Summit Foundation

Summit Foundation

The Starling Hotel Lausanne is glad to collaborate with the « Summit Foundation », an environmental foundation based in Switzerland.

“I was lucky enough to eat in your restaurant with this incredible view from the terrace. All of a sudden, the common point makes sense between your activity at the Starling Hotel Lausanne and ours at Summit Foundation.”Olivier Kressman, environmental advisor

This swiss foundation was founded in 2001 in Vevey by Laurent Thurnheer. With the help of his two collaborators, Olivier and Florine, their mission today is to reduce the environmental impact of human activities.

This NGO mainly focuses on ski resorts in winter and music festivals in summer (Paleo, Montreux Jazz Festival). Summit Foundation focuses on the natural environment because it is easier today to educate people by sending them environmental messages during a moment of relaxation such as skiing or during a festival between two concerts.

They work in very busy places. In Switzerland they could estimate more than 20 mio days of ski which represents tons of waste every winter.

They focus on 3 areas of activity

The awareness

Awareness through communication. Their main project is the comic bubbles. This campaign is present in more than 70 ski areas in Switzerland, France and Lichtenstein.
In order to raise awareness, a smartphone application has been developed for ski instructors so that they can communicate about the concept during ski lessons.

The solutions

There are many solutions to limit the damage: the pocket trash bin, sorting terminals or wall ashtray. The goal is to change the behaviour of people with fun solutions.

The events


We organize events in the tourism industry.

The Starling Hotel Lausanne has an Environmental Committee that supports and encourages employees’ environmental actions on a daily basis. Summit Foundation will complete our committee. This is a first for the foundation to collaborate with the hotel sector! It will enhance the work of our many employees concerned about the environment within the hotel.

The foundation will opt for an active communication through our website and our social networks.

In addition, it will put very concrete solutions within the hotel to preserve the environment. For example, the set-up of sorting terminals to improve the quality of sorting in different waste fractions.

The NGO has already set up a wall ashtray at the Starling Hotel Lausanne to reduce the littering of cigarette butts.

Auguste's interview

Title : Waiter

Departement : Stars*s Restaurant

Years working at Starling Hotel Lausanne : 1 year and a half

In your opinion, what makes a great waiter?

It’s important to satisfy the client.
We also have to know all the products that we propose for example all the ingredients and the preparation methods of the dishes.

Actually, when we anticipate the customer’s needs, we make the customer happy and satisfied.

What makes you the happiest in your job?

It really touches me in my job when the client shows me his gratitude.
It sometimes happens that he calls me by my first name or that he looks for me in the hotel at his departure to say thank you and goodbye.

Jean-Claude’s Interview

Title : Transfer Officer

Departement : Concierge service

Years working at Starling Hotel Lausanne : 7 years

What makes a good Transfer Officer?

My first goal is to respond to customer requests.
I fully enjoy the contact with them when I am at the check-in counter or in the shuttle bus.  Some people don’t know about this service so when I tell them that we have free transfer on our website and when I propose for a ride, the clients are very grateful and glad.

We also offer the shuttle to companies around us. The requests are different so we have to meet their needs: itineraries, flexible schedules, etc.

The location of the hotel and its ease of access are a real advantage.

In your opinion, what makes Starling Hotel Lausanne unique?

The hotel has a good relationship with the different companies. They regularly come back to the Starling Hotel Lausanne.

I think that unlike other hotels, our quality of service is higher.

Furthermore, we are a big family who enjoys collaborating together.
It is a real strength for the hotel.

What are the 3 characteristics you enjoy the most in your job?

I am a very versatile person, I very often lend a helping hand to my colleagues in the different departments. It is for this reason also that I like to move with the shuttle.

I like to be in contact with customers and colleagues.
The hotel is small so it’s easy to communicate with everyone. Moreover, I speak 4 languages so it’s not a barrier for me to communicate with customers. I am happy when I can answer them in their mother tongue.

Finally, I like to accommodate customers.
Once, a client was about to miss her plane and I brought her to the Geneva Airport. This kind of service is always a pleasure for me and for the guest who is more willing to come back to Starling Hotel Lausanne.
