Sustainability at the Facilities

Villages Nature Paris
Center Parcs Villages Nature Paris is a unique eco-tourism destination in Europe, leading the way in sustainable tourism since its inception. It holds three prestigious certifications—ISO 14001, ISO 50001, and Green Key—reflecting its commitment to positive environmental and social impact. The site distinguishes itself through its use of carbon-free geothermal energy, which supplies all of its hot water and heating requirements. It also implements an ecological management plan for its green spaces, has on-site recycling centres to process waste, and actively promotes environmental awareness among both visitors and staff.

Disneyland Paris
The Walt Disney Company has one of the industry’s most ambitious and wide-reaching strategies when it comes to both social and environmental responsibility. Zooming in on Disneyland Paris, presentations and behind the scenes tours will focus on the resort’s commitment to leaving a positive environmental legacy. This tour will showcase initiatives including one of Europe’s largest solar canopy plants, as well as technology aimed at increasing geothermal energy, water reduction, as well as programs aimed at recycling, upcycling, and leveraging the circular economy.

Futuroscope, one of France’s largest theme park resorts, is in the process of a 300 million Euro expansion plan. Projects include Aquascope, Futuroscope’s themed indoor waterpark, as well as the Ecolodgee ecological village concept. Investments in sustainability include a commitment to energy transition, targeting zero carbon emissions and zero use of fossil fuels, 70% self-produced energy consumption in the park and resort project, 100% waste recovery, and a fleet of zero-pollution site vehicles.

Puy du Fou
Since its creation in 1977, respect of the environment and the preservation of the Vendéen history, architectural, cultural, and social heritage has been an integrated part of the Puy du Fou DNA. To pursue its commitment, the park has several certifications, and organizes its sustainability work within five pillars: environment, talent, culture, community, and animal welfare. As one of the largest and most recognized attractions in France, Puy du Fou’s commitment to sustainability is an integral part of both the business model and the strategic direction of the company.
