The hotel

  • An Environment, Social & Corporate Governance team is committed to training staff in eco-gestures at the hotel but also at home.
  • A colleague is assigned to analyse our water consumption as we undertake a monthly reading of it. Our recent and standard sanitary water use system also reduces our consumption.
  • To fight energy waste, our hotel is partially equipped with LED lamps with motion detectors and we closely monitor lighting and temperatures within the building.

In room

  • Our water bottles are either made of recycled and 100% recyclable plastic or reusable glass.
  • The minimize the use of paper, the Room Service menu has been dematerialised in QR code.
  • The beauty product miniatures have been replaced by larger, reusable containers by luxury cosmetic brand Byredo.
  • With UNISOAP, we recycle our used soap bars to allow the people in need to access hygiene.
  • Our guests can choose whether or not to change their bed sheets and towels during their stay.

At the restaurant and bar

  • To minimize food waste, chef Mathieu Charrois and his brigade recycle food peelings, buy calibrated vegetables to limit the loss of processed products or even create syrups from champagnes that no longer sparkle.
  • We choose local and/or committed suppliers for all of our raw materials and are transparent about their origin.
  • With Les Alchimistes, we have created a system for sorting organic waste in order to make compost for local soils.

At the Concierge

  • We recommend that our guests carry out non-polluting outdoor activities: hikes along the river banks, bike rides, discovery of the Parc de la Tête d’Or and its many activities, etc.
