Our vision is to drive the change towards positive, more socially responsible and innovative hospitality.”
In the Greater China region, AccorHotels has made significant progress in reducing water consumption by 3.1 percent per hotel guest and lowering energy consumption by 6.7 percent per available room since the Planet 21 programme was launched.
