Our 100% organic commitment
The Monte-Carlo Beach’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programme is part of a group-wide initiative launched by the Monte-Carlo SBM Group in June 2007. In 2013, the Group also began its second environmental charter for the 2013-2016 period and is moving towards a complete, three-fold CSR approach encompassing its environmental, social and societal aspects.
The Monte-Carlo Beach has developed its strong commitment to sustainable development though its own environmental charter signed in June 2013, which highlights and showcases the establishment’s key actions:
- Beach goes bio!
The Elsa Restaurant at the Monte-Carlo Beach is the first gourmet restaurant in the PACA region to have obtained the “Organic” certification in the strictest category - Category 3 - by the certifying body Ecocert.
The Elsa Restaurant offers 100% organic and locally-produced cuisine.
- Recycling of towels and table sets
All towels and table sets are provided by the My Drap company and are recycled in partnership with the Pacôme Recyclage association, which collects them.
- Transport policy
In terms of clean transport, the Monte-Carlo Beach has electric vehicles as well as a private electric bicycle station.
- Energy policy
Purchasing renewable energy for 100% of its electricity consumption from EDF.
- Stakeholder involvement
The hotel raises awareness and informs its teams (forums, e-news and internal blogs), clients (press releases, environmental charter and flyers in hotel rooms) and partners, who receive an ethical charter to respect.
- Green Globe Certification
In 2014, the Monte-Carlo Beach became one of the first two hotel establishments in the Principality of Monaco to receive the Green Globe certification.
Green Globe is an internationally recognised certification programme designed for the travel and luxury tourism industry.
This prestigious label is awarded based on four types of criteria: management of sustainable development, social and economic aspects, cultural heritage and the environment. There are 321 indicators used to evaluate each establishment’s approach to encouraging sustainable development. The label’s demanding criteria confirm the Monte-Carlo Beach’s green stance and sustainable tourism.
“In the short term, our aim is to make the Monte-Carlo Beach the first hotel to be eco-certified 100% organic in all its food services: gastronomic restaurant, room service, minibar and hotel bar”, Danièle Garcelon, Director of the Monte-Carlo Beach.
