Sustainable Luxury and Biodiversity Co-exist at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc
August 8, 2017 Bradley Cox

Diverse and spectacular flora and fauna can be experienced at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc located on the French Riviera on the shores of the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounded by 9 hectares of gardens.

Green Globe congratulates Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on its recent recertification for the sixth consecutive year.

The property focuses on the development of social and environmental goals to ensure guests are offered a service of excellence whilst respecting biodiversity. And a dedicated CSR Team comprised of volunteers participate in various sustainability projects to ensure their successful outcome.

Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc is actively engaged in a number of ecological initiatives. The hotel supports the preservation of the coastline by working together with the Commune of Antibes and the association Pour une Planète Bleue to protect turtles in the Mediterranean Sea. Mission Caretta is an experimental ethological study designed to study the behaviour of young sea turtles. The turtles are bred in captivity then raised in a closed natural lagoon and the study will determine whether they can be released safely into the wild. It was reported that up to 70 turtles visited the area in recent times.

As part of its sustainability management plan, energy and water usage are monitored monthly and figures recorded each year. The property aims to reduce consumption in both areas by 2% when the property is open for business. In addition, to reduce carbon emissions, electric vehicles are available for use within the grounds and BlueTEC (gas filtration) vehicles can be used for trips or transfers.

A comprehensive and inclusive communication strategy plan is in place at the hotel. Staff as well as senior management regularly attend and contribute to meetings addressing specific areas of sustainability. Employees are also trained on the environmental and sustainable initiatives of the hotel and CSR quizzes are organized to test the knowledge of staff members.
