Accor Reinforces Commitment to Lower Carbon Emissions and Greater Energy Sufficiency
Accor was the first international hotel group to make a long-term commitment to decarbonize all its operations and achieve net zero by 2050 – including a 46% emission reduction by 2030, validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative. Given that 63% of the Group’s carbon footprint is energy related, accelerating energy transition is central to this commitment and depends on a low-energy, low-carbon approach. Accor has long been committed to transitioning to low-energy buildings with the double benefit of reducing carbon emissions and operating costs. Securing the future also means continuing to innovate by choosing low-carbon building materials that can be recycled, including high-performance insulation that significantly reduces energy consumption. It also means accelerating the purchase, production and use of low-carbon energy sources and, when possible, generating renewable energy directly on site. Accor signs an average of one new hotel every day worldwide. Every year, several hundred establishments are also renovated. For construction and major renovation projects.
