PARIS--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2013) - Eco-friendly measures at a prominent downtown Paris hotel remain solid and unscathed according to a March 2013 re-certification process by SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification organization. 

As the first convention hotel in France to attain and maintain its ISO 14001 certification the distinguished Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Center involves its guests in eco-friendly measures that help define its dedication to the environment and sustainability. 

Guests of this sophisticated Paris business hotel are particularly involved in noted eco-friendly measures through actions like the Linen Program or Green Events, launched by Marriott in June 2009, which focuses on the use of eco-friendly meeting materials and menus featuring organic food. 

In addition to guest-assisted programs, respect for the environment based on awareness and specific training for associates defines the environmental agenda at the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Center. And, as a forerunner among Paris hotels initializing and maintaining a strong platform for the world's sustainability, this impressive property with its massive convention center, state-of the art meeting rooms and stylish restaurant in downtown Paris takes very seriously the criteria defined by SGS in attaining the respected ISO 14001 certification.

While certification is attributed according to a panel of criteria defined by SGS, the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche bases its participation on the goals of:

  • Reducing consumption of natural resources and energy
  • Reducing the amount of global waste
  • Improving discharges and industrial waste management
  • Increasing respect of environmental regulations

Thanks to the annual environmental analysis required to maintain certification, aggressive actions taken by the hotel to support its environmental policy have helped the lodging remain true to its standard of global sustainability. Key actions taken include the selection of an electricity provider who guarantees at least 25% 'green energy' and the choice of companies specialized in the collection and treatment of waste products such as cooking oils, cardboard, glass, paper and batteries.
