Why should you act?
hôtel Key

Why you ?

You can create change because:

As a hosting provider, you have a great deal of power to act, whether it's :

  • in the structure you manage (materials, insulation, energy consumption...)

  • or in terms of raising awareness among the public with whom you are in direct contact!

  • As an accommodation professional, you are directly concerned by the impacts of climate change: heatwave summers or lack of snow in the mountains, for example, depending on your location, impact your occupancy rates.

  • The adoption of environmental sustainability criteria is increasingly becoming a genuine criterion of choice that weighs heavily on travelers' decisions: hotels that have been renovated and repositioned on the market experience almost immediate growth on average!

Why now ?

To become a change maker, you have to go through four stages that can be summed up in these words: 

Measure - Reduce - Contribute - Adapt
