From construction to daily operations, sustainability is woven into every concrete action at Accor ౼ including low-carbon menus, waste management, energy and water consumption, eliminating single-use plastics and connecting each property with its local ecosystem.

Key takeaways

  • After investing $65 million and nearly five years of detailed planning and execution, the revamped Fairmont Royal York was unveiled in November 2023. This transformative renovation proves that even expansive legacy buildings can become sustainable;
  • The Tunisian seaside hotel, Mövenpick Sousse, is one of Accor’s GAIA 2.0 pioneers, a tool launched to monitor carbon monoxide emissions and optimize energy consumption;
  • The Sofitel Dubai the Palm takes full advantage of its tropical desert microclimate with its 232 rooftop solar panels. The 530 sq/m of panels generate 2,200 kw of heat output each day - enough to heat 50% of the hotel’s hot water.
