THE PLANET 21 PROGRAMME

We have 3700 hotels around the world because we love Planet Earth.

To use its resources without jeopardising its future, we have joined the PLANET 21 programme.

These 21 concrete and quantitative objectives relate to local sourcing, diversity and water, energy and waste management.

Some figures

The equivalent in energy consumption for French homes saved thanks to better management.

4 000 000

The number of trees planted by Accor since 2009. That's a lot of football pitches! 2,400, to be precise.
