For Accor, first global hotel operator, Energy Observer is much more than a simple operation of sponsorship, it is really an opportunity to engage its employees and its customers in the energy transition.

An integral part of the Group's sustainable development approach, Accor group’s sustainable development programme, the ambition of this partnership is to reproduce, along with the CEA-LITEN, technologies proven by Energy Observer within AccorInvest pilot facilities in order to test them within a hotel environment before considering a largerscale deployment.

Victorien Erussard in conversation with Sébastien Bazin, CEO of Accor and Nicolas Hulot, sponsor of Energy Observer

“Energy Observer is a promising epic that will contribute to propel Accor forward. Each year, the Group consumes over 400 million euros in water and energy. We managed to reduce this consumption by 7% in five years, but we must go even further, and our partnership with Energy Observer and the CEA-LITEN will help us do this. By committing ourselves alongside Energy Observer, Accor reaffirms its ambition to be pioneer in today's energy transition. To move faster in the search for new, clean, and sustainable energies- this is the objective of this partnership.”
