Our commitment to Sustainable Development
Every day, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo puts its expertise to use to meet its environmental, social and societal commitments. In March 2018 we signed up to the National Energy Transition Pact and in March 2019 we obtained our Green Globe Certification, both of which reflect our promise to be sustainable and responsible.
The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo is committed to a sustainable development management program, while constantly improving through its own environmental charter highlighting its key actions:
- Since January 2018, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has structured and formalised its approach to sustainable development by putting in place a dedicated team of twenty-three people to monitor all its actions in this area.
- We raise awareness of sustainable development among employees through annual training and a strong commitment from all the hotel’s departments.
- We have created a “Green Corner” for recycling and useful information about sustainable development.
- We have created a green library, the “Cave à livres” or “Book Cellar”, a nod to the wine boxes from the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo cellars that have contributed to the project.
- We have introduced a selective sorting system for waste in staff areas (ink cartridges, plastic, paper, card, etc.).
- We have implemented “Train the Trainer” training on the challenges of sustainable development, accredited by a specialist organisation, for all members.
- We have introduced water bottles for all of the hotel’s employees to eliminate plastic bottles.
- On one afternoon each week, staff are given free sweet treats (ice creams, pastries, seasonal fruit salads, etc.).
- We have installed a bike and scooter rack for use by hotel staff.
- For the well-being of employees, we have created a rest space with a television and comfy seats.
- To boost employee vigilance, we have posted a “don’t throw anything away, the sea begins here” message at the staff entrance.
- We collect plastic caps and corks and send them to the association Les Bouchons d’Amour in order to recycle them and help people with disabilities.
- We collect Guerlain soaps and send them to the association SapoCycle, which recycles them and gives them to families in need.
- Employees participate in the “No Finish Line” charity race, which raises money for Children & Future (an association that helps underprivileged or sick children).
- We collect work and personal clothing for the association PÂCOME.
- We collect toys for the SIVOM association of communes in aid of the charity Restos du Coeur and other local organisations.
- We collect corks for the association France Cancer, which recycles them to give them a second life. All profits go to cancer research.
- We continue not to buy bluefin tuna.
- We have purchased 20 beehives in the Gorges de Daluis for the preservation of bees.
- Hotel employees clean the Larvotto beach.
- We use clean vehicles: electric scooters.
- We have introduced a bug hotel in our gardens to help preserve the surrounding flora.
- In 2020, the Michelin-starred Le Grill restaurant signed up to the Mr. Goodfish programme and committed to the sustainable consumption of seafood products in its cuisine.
Managing energy use
- Our gardens are populated with Mediterranean species, which require less water and care.
- Toilets, showers and staff areas are equipped with motion sensors to ensure lights are lit for the shortest possible time.
- We purchase organic and local products (bread, wheat, red quinoa, olive paste, olive oil, balsamic vinegar) as well as wild-caught fish, with health and good quality food in mind.
- We support local food chains.
- We have replaced plastic straws with straws made from corn starch.
- We use Imprim’Vert certified eco-friendly paper.
Raising the awareness of our customers
- The concierge service offers customers the use of a Tesla car for their airport transfers.
- We have introduced a selective sorting system for waste in meeting rooms for our business customers.
- We offer to change customers’ bed linen and bath towels every two days.
- We have created a “Green Spirit” channel on the televisions in rooms and suites.
- Actions to promote sustainable development are highlighted on the screens on bedroom telephones from 9pm to 5am.
- The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo invites its customers to adopt an eco-friendly attitude in their daily activities by recycling their used Nespresso capsules, from which 890 soft drinks cans have been made.
