Green Globe recognitions take Monte-Carlo SBM one step closer to eco goals

Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, Monaco’s biggest hotel and restaurant portfolio, is celebrating a significant milestone in its journey towards becoming the world’s first completely Green Globe-certified resort with a raft of new and renewed certifications from the sustainability-focused brand. 

The Green Globe certification standard, which assesses environmental impact and energy usage in hospitality establishments and groups around the world, is widely recognised as a reputable global benchmark for excellent sustainability practices in tourism.  

Its latest round of certifications have just been announced, and the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM) resort has performed very well.  

Among the biggest winners are the Hôtel Hermitage, which received gold level certification for its five consecutive years of environmental commitments, while Monte-Carlo Beach has been awarded platinum status after a decade of sustainable practices. Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort is also poised to attain platinum status within the month.  

Other SBM properties, including the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo and the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, have also been awarded Green Globe certifications. This recognition extends to the One Monte-Carlo conference centre and the Aigue Marine headquarters, indicating a widespread commitment to sustainable practices across SBM’s diverse portfolio. The Casino de Monte-Carlo is currently in the process of obtaining its first certification. 

“The final objective is to become the world’s first completely Green Globe-certified resort,” said a spokesperson for SBM of the recent recognitions.
