To meet the expectations of visitors keen on responsible tourism, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau is encouraging Paris hotels to undertake a sustainable approach to operations through its programme 'For Sustainable Accommodation in Paris'. Through an audit following a visit to the establishment and themed workshops, hoteliers are helped to enhance sustainability: environmental, social and societal.

Launched in June 2012, the Charter for Sustainable Accommodation in Paris has 467 signatories. These hotels commit to making their best effort to:

  • Promote sustainable development goals, whether in terms of in-house management or vis-à-vis everyone they have dealings with (transparency, ethics, compliance with laws, respect for human rights, etc.);
  • Reduce water and energy use;
  • Reduce and recycle waste;
  • Implement an eco-responsible purchasing policy;
  • Make suppliers and staff aware of sustainability policies;
  • Inform guests of sustainability goals and encourage guests to participate in green effort during their stay;
  • Welcome disabled (physical, sensory or mental) guests in the best possible conditions and offer them appropriate information on accessibility to tourism establishments and activities;
  • Improve working conditions for staff, and their wellbeing at work;
  • Promote the natural and cultural heritage of the Paris region;
  • Measure progress; durably implement and publicize their policy.
