Initiatives for a sustainable future
At Hôtel Château Bellevue, our commitment to sustainable development and ecoresponsibility is reflected in everything we do.
At Hôtel Château Bellevue, we care about the things we do that impact the environment. Which is why we’ve introduced a Sustainable Development Policy that’s one of the strictest in our sector.
Every year, we make substantial investments to guarantee sustainable development in our operations. The $300,000 we had invested to date earned Hôtel Château Bellevue a “Three Green Keys Eco-Rating” in March 2010 for significant advances in protecting the environment.
Eco-responsible hotel practices at Hôtel Château Bellevue include…
- Recycling. Bins are placed in all hotel passages.
- Biodegradable personal care products in hotel rooms (including dispensers), as well as housekeeping and custodial products throughout the hotel.
- Smart energy practices in our heating systems, electricity and water use.
- Recovery. Used furniture and supplies (like bedding and towels) that no longer meet 4-star hotel standards are donated to local charities.
The “Bellevue Library”
We think this is a great idea… a “green” library that’s open to all hotel guests.
You can borrow a book to read as long as you like in your room, on a bench or under the trees in the Parc des Gouverneurs just outside Hôtel Château Bellevue.
If you haven’t finished your book, you can take it along when you check out… as long as you leave another book in exchange.
