CSR in the hospitality industry: what are the findings?
While the AGEC law (Anti-waste law for a circular economy) provides a framework for public worksites, Solenne Ojea-Devys, general manager of the Okko Hotels group, explains that there is no equivalent for private worksites. Therefore, in hotel projects, the follow-up of a CSR approach is more the result of the client’s will: “On the one hand, we want to show a good will in terms of CSR. On the other hand, our investors are looking to invest in greener buildings. And the ultimate goal on both sides is to successfully lower the cost of the bill.” However, on the question of furniture, she notes that it is still a “no-man’s-land which is not at all supervised and that decisions are thus made at the whim of the final decision-maker, namely the one who pays in the end.
