The first "green" hotel appeared at the Krasnaya Polyana resort in Sochi, Russia

 ibis Styles, a design four-star hotel located at 960 Polyana, has been certified by the international Green Key. Compliance with the award's rigorous standards has been verified against more than 100 criteria by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) auditor. The Green Key Award recognizes hospitality properties that conduct business in a sustainable manner.

According to Andrey Krukovsky, General Director of Krasnaya Polyana Resort, over time, other resort hotels will also become “green” at the resort, and they are already successfully introducing environmentally friendly technologies and practices: “In accordance with our sustainable development strategy, we have switched to a system of environmentally responsible procurement - many product groups have requirements for ecolabelling. This already applies to paper products, cosmetics, and daily room cleaning products. We intend to further transform our business in order to develop in harmony with nature."

Part of this transformation is the implementation of the Smart Resort system, which ensures the careful use of resources and the safe operation of all engineering systems. All hotels in the resort are equipped with water-saving devices, and only energy-saving lamps are used for lighting.

Krasnaya Polyana resort actively cooperates with all interested parties, creating conditions for the preservation of a favorable environment. The Accor hotel chain, which is represented at the resort by the brands ibis Styles, Novotel, Mövenpick and Rixos, has its Planet 21 sustainable development program, which is also actively implemented at the resort. For example, hotel restaurants do not serve endangered fish species. On the other hand, local products are widely represented: in the award-winning ibis Styles hotel, more than 80% of food products are produced in Sochi and the Krasnodar Territory. Their delivery time to the table is minimal, which ensures high quality and maximum nutritional value.
