Corporate Responsibility


Water supply from local sources

With a view to holistically managing all of the hotels’ water use and limiting the impact on local resources, Accor is seeking to identify all of the water withdrawals connected with its operations.

To date, the proprietary MACH Asset Management application, currently being deployed, has identified:

a 22 hotels using desalination facilities;

a 76 hotels using wells in addition to the public water system;

a 66 hotels equipped with a water treatment plant;

2.3.5. ENERGY

a 38 hotels with rainwater cisterns.

Comparing the MACH and OPEN data will help to make the data inputted into OPEN more reliable.

As part of the water use reduction programs, Accor intends to pursue this commitment to managing water use, in particular in regions suffering from water stress, i.e. where there is not enough water to meet the needs of the population and the environment, or where resources are being depleted.

Several actions have already been initiated in line with Charter 21, and 189 hotels are equipped with rainwater recovery systems, 28 more than in 2011.
