Eco+friendly

Eklo Hotels is a project that aspires to be more caring, more human, more respectful to the nature, with the desire to limit our impact on the environment.

We are very proud of our Low Energy Building projects (LEB) and of our eco-friendly approach, which allow each of us to save money and energy.

 


 

Rooted in Eklo’s DNA, the environmental approach is at the heart of the brand’s values.

At each facility in a city, the group conducts an in-depth reflection, from the construction of the facility to its operation. Being an actor in an eco-responsible hotel industry commits Eklo to a virtuous approach, with the objective of progressing every day.

Eklo chose the Nantes-based company Betterfly Tourism to evaluate and control the environmental and energy performance of its hotels through the environmental label. This official system, supported by the ADEME and the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, enables clients to be informed about the ecological impact of a night spent in the establishment with breakfast. Eklo Bordeaux obtained the A rating on the basis of the following four indicators:

• impact on climate
• water consumption
• consumption of non-renewable resources,
• share of organic or eco-labelled products in hotel supplies.

Our daily actions

  • Shower gel and towel to rent (1€ each), to reduce plastic and water waste.
  • Pay as you go services from 1€, to only pay for what you need, with no frills. 
  • Cleaning of the rooms on every departure and upon request, to make cleaning process more meaningful. 
  • Saving energy devices, to switch on electricity once the room is occupied. 
  • Water ventilation devices (showers) and small tanks (toilets), to reduce water consumption. 
  • Air Handling Unit, ingenious process which recycles the incoming air, keeping a nice and continuous temperature and ventilation.
