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.


The Ritz Paris is the first hotel in France to obtain certification from the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The GSTC is a non-profit organization recognized by the UN and its agency UNWTO (UN World Tourism Organization), which is responsible for establishing the highest sustainable tourism standards for the industry worldwide. These policies guarantee that an establishment meets "the highest social and environmental standards in the industry.”

A strong commitment

"This process has enabled us to structure, mobilize and unite all the teams at the Ritz Paris with the aim of pursuing our commitments and enhancing our initiatives on a daily basis." - Audrey Peguret, Chief Sustainability Officer at Ritz Paris.

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.


The Ritz Paris has seen fashions and years go by while constantly renewing the hotel industry and its codes. At a time of climate emergency and its associated upheavals, we are once again reinventing luxury to give it a new ecological conscience. Our brand and our business model have therefore taken the path of reason without diminishing the Ritz Paris experience, thanks to the ingenuity of our partners and employees.
