Generally when hotels talk to you about the environment this involves a small card asking you to use your towel more than once. The cynics will rightly see that this is a simple plan to reduce work instead of trying to really preserve our environment. During the renovation of the Nordet, we were in a unique position to update the systems to facilitate our use of valuable resources and enhance your experience! Here’s a list of the changes we’ve made and the systems we’ve put in place that impact our natural resources:
In order to optimize the service offer of the motel, modifications were necessary. Residual waste reduction is considered using composting. We added water reducers on the showerheads and toilets to the sanitary services. The use of alternative energy such as solar panels (thermal) reduces our ecological footprint.
In its quality policy, the Nordet places great emphasis on local and organic purchases. From its installation in this exceptional place, we wanted to ensure that the Nordet is part of the community honoring the work of local artisans.
During the renovation, only noble materials will be used such as wood for the ceiling and the floor. In addition, our choice was directed towards wood from the region to reduce transport and promote the local economy, one of the basic principles of sustainable development.
As for sanitary ware, to reduce the impact, we used only recycled ceramics.
We are concerned about the very large use of water in our sanitary facilities and shower rooms. While wanting to reduce our consumption, we do not want our customers to feel it negatively. That’s why we opted for the installation of high-efficiency water-saving aerators in shower heads and faucets. According to studies, these should allow a saving of water of nearly 80%.
