Eco-friendly accommodation

There is a growing consideration for accessibility and the environment in the Parisian hotel and restaurant sector. Here are some steps that make it possible to pick out green accommodation, including the signatories of the Bureau's charter ‘For sustainable accommodation in Paris’.

The Westin Paris Vendôme - Terrasse d'été

Programme ‘For sustainable accommodation in Paris’.

Since 2012, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau has been mobilizing hoteliers. After self-assessment via an online tool, establishments are visited in order to broaden their sustainable actions. Practical tools are given to them and themed workshops are offered. Once the required level has been reached, the official signing of the charter ‘For sustainable accommodation in Paris’ is organized and communication increased. For 3 years, the signatory institutions undertake to:

  • Promote the values of sustainable development both in its running of the hotel and in its relations with all its associates (transparency, ethics, observance of legislation and rules and regulations, respect for human rights, etc.);
  • Reduce its energy and water consumption;
  • Reduce and optimize its waste;
  • Have an eco-responsible purchasing policy;
  • Raise suppliers’ and collaborators’ awareness of sustainable development;
  • Share the values of sustainable development with its hotel guests andencourage them to become involved in this ecological approach throughout their stay;
  • Welcome disabled (physical, sensory or mental) guests in the best possible conditions and offer them appropriate information on accessibility to tourism establishments and activities;
  • Improve the working conditions of its collaborators and their well-being at work;
  • Highlight the natural and cultural heritage of Paris and the Paris region;
  • Measure its progress, continue to improve its initiatives and communicate about them to others.
