Towards a more sustainable tourism: our CSR plan

Marie Nonell
Head of CSR Louvre Hotels Group

“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 “Objective 2025”

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.

Our environmental priorities

We have identified four priorities inherent in our sector of business:

  • Reduce energy consumption with a goal to reduce our consumption by 40% by 2030.
  • Favor circular economy by educating our partners in the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
  • Eliminate single-use plastics by offering alternatives
  • Reduce food waste by reducing by 50% food loss by 2050.

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.

Louvre Hotels Group is also a member of the Actors For Sustainable Tourism and C3D associations (Unit of Directors for Sustainable Development).

Our sourcing commitment


  • We commit to use exclusively cage-free eggs by the end of the year 2025 . This commitment includes both fresh eggs and the eggs used to make egg product, and concerns all of the group’s brands worldwide. Here are the progress of the group on this topic :

In France: In 2022, our purchasing platform offers 90% of cage-free eggs references (code 1 and code 2). The group is working to reach 100% cage-free eggs referenced on its purchasing platform in 2025. Moreover, in 2022, 12% of consumed cage-free eggs are free-range eggs, that to say 14 tons/ year.

Rest of Europe: In Europe, more than 80% of referenced eggs and eggs products of our purchasing platform are cage-free eggs (code 2, code 1 and code 0) Poland 95%, Netherlands 95%, Belgium 95%, Germany 95%, Spain 30%

  • By 2026, we commit to sourcing 100% of our chicken meat from farms and slaughterhouses that comply with all the criteria of the European Chicken Commitment. This policy applies to all our locations in Europe. In addition, in France, at least 20% of these chicken meat volumes will come from farms that meet the criteria and guarantee that the birds have access to free range or to a winter garden.
  • In 2021 as part of our environmental responsibility and animal well-being commitment, we have identified a line of black chickens, raised from a heritage lineage, slow growth. The black chicken respects the criteria of the European Chicken Commitment (ECC). They are raised for a minimum of 63 days, in small groups, in small traditional chicken coops with natural light and access to a large outdoor yard. Their feed is OGM-free and 100% vegetable, mineral and vitamins, including 65% of French grains.
