Cannes, a front runner in sustainable international destinations

The City of Cannes is one of nine pilot sustainable international destinations in the framework of the ISO 20121. In 2009, the Palais des Festivals and Congresses became the first European center to be triply certified: ISO 9001 - ISO 14001 - OHS18001 then ISO 26000.
CANNES SUSTAINABLE DESTINATION

The City of Cannes is one of nine pilot sustainable international destinations in the framework of the ISO 20121. In 2009, the Palais des Festivals and Congresses became the first European center to be triply certified: ISO 9001 – ISO 14001 – OHS18001 then ISO 26000. For 10 years, the city and its Palais des Festivals et des Congrès have stood out for their strong environmental initiatives: for the International Fireworks Festival, there is systematic cleaning of see surface and seabed; for each trade fair or congress, carpets are refurbished, just like the emblematic International Film Festival’s red-carpet which is 100 % recycled; for each event waste sorting is carried out and an onus is always placed on environmentally-friendly practices.

This certification, which combines foresight and responsible construction of the French events sector, further consolidates the strategy for ecological acceleration undertaken in 2014 by the Mayor of Cannes to benefit Cannes residents and visitors.

Says Mayor of Cannes David Lisnard: “We have a long-standing commitment to excellence in quality in environmental policy. For example, since this summer there has been zero plastic in the kiosks, and we have been developing information campaigns. The ports of Cannes are certified as ‘clean ports’ and have implemented a ‘0 rejection at sea’ policy.”
