Environmental, social and societal emergency. What roles can the tourism industry play in these global issues? What concrete benefits can be derived from a sustainable development policy? What are the impacts on the management of accommodation units?

Overtourism, carbon footprint, energy consumption, personnel management, destruction of natural habitats... all these attacks on the blue planet and its inhabitants can oppose solutions. Schooling, responsible travel, staff training, short circuits, renewable energies... there is an infinite array of possibilities, multiplied even further by the progress in R&D driven by new technologies.

The intelligent building is no longer a utopia but is becoming a reality that makes it possible to create positive energy units. Nothing is simple and everything has a cost so where to place the cursor? What are the best practices to adopt and why? What are the benefits for operators, investors, promoters?

Since it has become impossible to not think about the future of our planet and its inhabitants:

Nicolas Dubreuil, expedition leader at Ponant  - Christian Caye, representative for sustainable development at Vinci - Arnaud Herrmann, vice president sustainable development at AccorHotels

Dev durable

Will testify, reflect, share, exchange about this often theoretical question that must nonetheless be integrated into the operations of tourism products.
