The Environmental Charter of Monte-Carlo SBM
Monte-Carlo SBM has set up an action plan aiming to encourage eco-friendly conduct and to meet international goals in environmental matters. This plan features 23 measures covering the following areas: information and awareness, energy and water consumption, waste management, reduction of greenhouse gas emission, use of recycled paper and eco-friendly products, and the reduction of the use of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides in green areas. The implementation of the plan in all SBM hotels and restaurants is subject to annual evaluations. To learn about these measures of the SBM Environmental Charter, please check out:

The Eco-Meet program is offered by Fairmont at all its properties throughout North America and at the Fairmont Monte Carlo. Eco-Meet is a green meeting and conference planning alternative which helps planners by providing a meeting structure that encourages maximum waste diversion and environmental awareness for conference delegates. Eco-Meet consists of options that can be tailored to the individual needs of the client. They can meet their environmental goals while choosing how "green" they want to go. Eco-Meet provides meeting planners with "disposable-free" food and beverage services, meeting room recycling stations, edible/organic or reusable centerpieces and the option for purchasing energy/emissions offsets.

Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo Takes the Green AttitudeMetropole Green Attitude
Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo believes that its own development should include the pursuit of a healthier way of life for guests and staff members.

A "Green Advice" document is presented to clients and a Green Attitude logo has been designed and is put on all marketing and PR documents to underline the hotel's commitment to environmental protection.

Columbus Monaco, a Pioneer in Waste Sorting and Recycling
Columbus Monaco has a longstanding commitment to sustainable development in the area of waste management. In 2005, the hotel signed a partnership with SMA, a local company specializing in decontamination, for waste sorting and recycling. SMA invested 16,000 Euros in two waste compactors imported from Finland that the hotel leases for 400 Euros a month. The machines store paper and cardboard, which are then treated. Used printer cartridges are sent to charities supporting children's care. A new system for breaking down fats, using an environmentally-friendly process, will soon be implemented.

Green Rooms at Le Méridien Beach Plaza
Le Méridien Beach Plaza is also following the green path. Among other initiatives, the hotel's guest rooms offer its clients the option of keeping their linen for several days. Televisions are no longer turned on before guests' arrival and low consumption light bulbs have replaced the energy inefficent ones. For more information, please visit
