Responsible for 8% of the emission of greenhouse gases, the reasons for which tourism pollutes are multiple : the disproportionate consumption of our natural resources (for hotel benefiting from a swimming pool or a golf course for example) and the use of aircraft as a means of transportation.
Ecological consciousness is spreading and the tourism sector is now impacted: tourists opt for eco-responsible tourism and prefer green cities. The Hotels must, therefore, align and now offer environmentally friendly services.
The environmental impact of a hotel stay
In a few figures, the environmental impact of a hotel stay corresponds to :
- 6,9 kgs of Co2 released into the atmosphere
- 178 liters of water
The processing of hotel linen represents, in France, 470 000 tons of Co2 emitted per year, more than 10 million m3 of water and 15 000 tons of laundry products.
