To avoid any Legionella issues, we conduct a bacteriological analysis each year and hotel managers check on the hot water tanks’ temperature daily to ensure that they are at a minimum of 60°C.
We introduced LED lights in all hotels, in the rooms and lobbies,as well as during renovations to prevent heat loss and therefore lower our CO2 emissions.
We monitor the energy, gas, and water levels on a regular basis in all hotels with a tracking system to reduce consumption where KPIs are too high.
We have initiated partnerships with certified sustainable/renewable energy suppliers.
We are introducing chargers for electric cars so our guests can recharge their vehicles when staying in our hotels in an attempt to reduce CO2 emissions.
We have recycling systems implemented in 50% of our hotels in France and in all hotels in Italy. In Germany, we hold recycling certificates for over 90% of our waste.
We use mixers/aerators in a majority of our hotel showers to reduce our water consumption by 50%
We have reduced our plastic usage in our hotels by using recycled materials
EcoLabel duvet and pillows: mattresses are changed according to use and demand (on average every 7 years). They are then recycled in a number of countries such as Germany. EcoLabel shower gel, toilet paper and paper towels to be used in all Hotels
We participated in “Earth Hour” by symbolically turning off the lights in our receptions, common rooms and outdoor areas. This is done to reduce our carbon footprint while also being able to observe the beauty of the night sky without the interference of lights.
We are increasing our responsible behavior, notably with a purchasing charter by requiring its suppliers to respect the principles of the UN Global Compact, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the fundamental conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
We are testing with Betterfly Tourism to evaluate the carbon footprint in each of our hotels.This system is supported by the Energetic Transition Agency (ADEME), which primarily calculates our carbon footprint, energy/water consumption, as well as percentage of organic and eco labelled products.
