The move will see the elimination of single-use plastics by 2022.
In addition to its previous commitment to eliminate all plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds, Accor now aims to remove individual plastic toiletry amenities and cups by the end of 2020.
It will also eliminate all remaining single-use plastic items in guestrooms, meeting areas, restaurants and all leisure activity areas by the end of 2022.
Sébastien Bazin, chairman and CEO of Accor, said: “We are aware of the significant impact we have on our planet and our responsibility to create tangible benefits for our employees, guests, suppliers, partners and host communities.
“What guides us is the consciousness and social awareness that drives every person who strives to be a good citizen. It’s about being aware, socially conscious and consistent.”
UN Environment Programme economy division director, Ligia Noronha, added: “Plastic pollution is one of the major environmental challenges of our time, and tourism has an important role to play in contributing to the solution.
“Through the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, tourism companies and destinations are supported to innovate, eliminate, innovate and circulate the way they use plastics, to advance circularity in our economies and reduce plastics pollution globally.”
