This environmental rating system calculates the ecological footprint of a night at the hotel taking into account all the steps in the life cycle of every piece of equipment, food for breakfast, toiletries, cleaning products and textiles.

Did you know? 

  • Average CO2 emissions for breakfast weigh 28 tons per year for a hotel with 80 rooms, the equivalent of 14 round trips between Paris and New York!
  • The average weight of waste at breakfast is 185g.

Following the data analysis, the Winggy® software designed by Betterfly Tourism gives the hotel a rating between A and E (A is the best) based on 4 indicators: impact on the climate, use of non-renewable energy resources, water consumption and the amount of organic or eco-friendly products in the hotel's supplies.

This official system is supported by the Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition of France. The rating is updated every year based on the establishment's annual results.
