Water and energy are key challenges for a major luxury resort
In just a few years, the establishments belonging to the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group have significantly reduced their water and energy consumption. For example, the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort has reduced its energy expenditure by 30% in just 8 years! The Group also differentiates itself by purchasing clean energy (98,5 % of the electricity certified as from renewable sources) and offsetting its gas consumption. Finally, water consumption has fallen by 35% in 10 years.
And because the fight against food waste concerns us all, the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group has adopted the “Gourmet Box”, a customised version of the “Petite Boite Monégasque” initially launched by the Monaco town hall, which consists of a box for taking home the leftovers from a meal after lunch or dinner. A simple way to make the “doggy bag” a habit for its customers!
Well-being on the plate
Sustainable development is also evident in the Resort’s kitchens thanks to Chefs who promote a healthy and authentic cuisine, using local, seasonal and fresh products. All allergens are also specified on our menus.
The Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort boasts its own organic kitchen garden, working in close partnership with the start-up Terre de Monaco which creates urban organic gardens.
Finally, the Hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo and its restaurant L’Hirondelle, the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo and the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo have signed the Mr Goodfish commitment to respect marine resources with an emphasis on fish from sustainable sources.
Preserving biodiversity, a priority for everyone
From the green spaces showcasing Mediterranean flora to the Marine protected areas of the Larvotto managed by the Monegasque Association for the Protection of Nature, as well as Pointe de la Vigie at Monte-Carlo Beach, which was officially classified as a bird refuge by the French Bird Protection League (Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux) since 2019, the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group is surrounded by an exceptional natural heritage that must be respected and protected. The green spaces are maintained without pesticides and also include several hundred-year-old trees along the Monaco Heritage Tree Trail.
