Each product goes through a test on environmental conformity and results are certified by an independent organisation. The certificate guarantees that your location uses energy in an effective manner, respects the natural environment and offers you all it takes to profit from your holidays.
The ecolabelised hotel respects the environment by using renewable energies, reducing water consumption, reducing the quantity of wastes and by training their staff to adopt an ecological behaviour. An eco-labelised hotel is therefore “naturally” better.
