HI France acts in favour of sustainable tourism

While tourism is far from being an environmentally friendly activity, there is much that each of us can do to reduce this impact while traveling.
Moving towards sustainable tourism means adapting and changing to find a balance between limits and resource use.
The issue of Sustainable Development is far from being a novelty for HI! France which has remained faithful to its founding principles.

The “Green Key” international labeling

Always more concerned about preserving the environment by committing itself in an active approach of sustainable development, HI France has invested in the implementation of the “Green Key” label for some of its establishments. Created in 1994 in Denmark, it is an international label that rewards tourist accommodations for their dynamism in environmental management. It was adapted in 1998 to French campsites, then extended to hotels and gradually developed to all categories of tourist accommodation.
