The first French EU Eco-labelled hotel participated to the European mobility week
Within the framework of its environmental policy, Hotel Les Orangeries***, the first EU Eco-labelled French hotel, participated to the European Mobility Week, from September 16th to 22nd.
This participation consisted in 3 concrete measures, all aiming at reducing the environmental impacts of transport:
· In partnership with the company Veloscoot, Hotel les Orangeries acquired 3 electric bicycles, enabling its customers to discover the region in a quiet and less polluting manner. Moreover, during the Mobility Week, clients arriving by train to Lussac-les-Chateaux, where the hotel is located, were offered free picking up of their luggage at the train station and special refreshments and food at their arrival to the hotel.
· A special menu, called Terroir Eco-Fret, where all food are produced and processed maximum
· The third action, targeting professional clients coming to the hotel for a seminar, consisted in the setting up of a car-sharing system. By means of a blog created on the hotel web site, participants are informed of the location of the different car parks where they can meet to share a car.
