Towards a more sustainable tourism: our CSR plan
“Sustainable tourism has become an essential criteria for our clients: 74% of French people think that ecological commitment is an important criteria when they choose a hotel, a café, a restaurant. It is the entire hospitality chain of value that we are transforming by engaging our teams, our clients, our partners and investors. Responsible for 11% of carbon emissions in the world, tourism is changing and Louvre Hotels Group wants to actively contribute to this historical transformation.”
Our Corporate Social Responsibility plan is based on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
We worked with all of our participating actors on 26 environmental, social and societal objectives to reach by 2025 in terms of product conception, exploitation, services, catering and human resources. Additionally, the Group is a partner of the World Travel & Tourism Council in its Hotel Sustainability Basics initiative.
We have identified four priorities inherent in our sector of business:
In order to contribute to sustainable tourism, we also work with innovative actors that allow us to develop our positive impact: Too Good To Go, to combat food waste, Solikend to offer nights to social justice associations, as well as several partnerships offering electric recharging stations to incite guests to use less carbon-producing means of transportation. Our goal is to outfit 100 establishments with electric recharging stations in 2022.
Additionally, we encourage our establishments to develop their own local commitments to favor sustainable mobility, biodiversity or inclusion, by giving them several tools which allow them to offer more responsible stays to their clients.
Lastly, each group brand engages in their own commitments towards sustainable development.
