Back to News & Events List
World's most progressive sustainability program to involve all
Accor hotels, employees and guests Building on almost two decades
of best-in-class performance in sustainable development, (including
EarthCheck Certification) Accor is taking its commitment to
sustainability to a higher level with the launch of PLANET 21, a
comprehensive sustainable development program involving
environmental, social and community support programs.
PLANET 21 covers all of the Group's environmental, social and
community investment actions and aims to place sustainability at
the core of its business strategy worldwide. With PLANET 21, Accor
is making 21 commitments and the same number of quantified goals
for the year 2015, including: a 15% reduction in water consumption,
a 10% decrease in energy use and 85% use of eco-labelled products
at Accor's owned and leased hotels worldwide.
The name PLANET 21 is a direct reference to Agenda 21, the
environmental action plan signed by 173 heads of state at the 1992
Rio Earth Summit, and reminds us of the urgent concerns that face
our planet in the 21st century and the need to change our methods
of production and consumption patterns to ensure the sustainability
of the planet.
Global GreenTag is the EarthCheck Certification system's
preferred certified for its 'Green Product Pipeline' that includes
Accor and many other hotels and hospitality venues.
