Corporate Social Responsibility

Aware of the need to act sustainably and as leaders of a visionary luxury hotel industry, we put our knowledge to work through multiple initiatives. The Ritz Paris is committed to three pillars: heritage conservation, social commitment and environmental preservation. It is by learning from those around us and building sincere relationships that we promise to stand the test of time without compromising the future of the planet.

OUR VISION

Since its creation, the Ritz Paris has embodied the undisputed world reference in hospitality expertise and French luxury. It has always held in its genes, a pioneering and inventive spirit, as well as founding commitments around service and benevolence which are the symbols of an exceptional experience, imbued with refinement, kindness and emotions. Today the objective of the Ritz Paris is to perpetuate its historic commitments and to develop even more sustainable luxury. To shape this responsible future, the Ritz Paris is committed to respect the principles of the United Nations Global agreement.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION

The Ritz Paris has seen fashions and years go by while constantly renewing the hotel industry and its codes.
