Our sustainable commitments

Positive hospitality at Novotel Chartres

Our Novotel Chartres hotel and its "A l'Epicerie" restaurant are implementing various sustainable actions and commitments with the support of Atypio Hotels Resorts and its franchisor Accor.  

Faced with the imperative need to act more effectively and to make a commitment, our aim is to ensure that all developments are sustainable. Our activities, our management of resources, the attention we pay to the well-being of our customers and employees. Working in synergy with local businesses to provide quality products and services.

Here are just a few examples of our sustainable commitments. You can also find out more on our "News" page or by following our social networks.

First concrete example Tri-recycling

Nespresso capsules are composed of 90% of coffee grounds and 10% of aluminium. The capsules sorted by Novotel Chartres are then sent to a recycling centre dedicated to recycling Nespresso capsules from several European countries.

  • The aluminium will be melted down to make new objects (e.g. cans or bicycles)
  • The coffee grounds will be used to produce compost, biogas, and in the greenhouse for flowers.
