Eco responsible stay Paris
Sustainable tourism in a few words…
According to the World Tourism Organization, sustainable tourism is responsible tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, meeting the needs of visitors, professionals, the environment and communities.
An eco responsible stay therefore reduces your carbon footprint. By different means: choice of soft mobility, green activities, local and organic consumption, ethical shopping, behavior that cares about the environment… All this applies to the Hotel Trianon Rive Gauche, by all the staff and in our Sustainable development Convention.
Paris green city, sustainable city
The green/electric transport network in Paris
RER, Metro, Bus and Tramway cross Paris and allow anyone to move around comfortably, while reducing their carbon footprint.
RATP buses consist of 100% electric buses, such as line 115 or line 126. By 2022 to 2023, no less than 450 100% electric buses will be available on the Ile-de-France network. With these new vehicles, the RATP hopes to become a global benchmark for low-carbon transport in Paris
A new generation of soft mobility
- Bicycles/ e-bikes
The best known in the capital remains the essential Vélib, with its colorful green (mechanical) and blue (electric) bicycles. Accessible via the Vélib mobile application, choose between the different packages (hourly, 24h or 3-day pass).

Towards a greening of the city
Major green urban projects are coming to Paris, very promising! Thus, the Eiffel Tower and its surroundings will be revegetated by 2024, as the Paris Olympics approach. Citizens and a special jury voted for the “OnE I” project by the agency Gustafson Porter + Bowman.
A bold project aiming to further pedestrianize the space, promote soft mobility and of course, develop nature in the heart of the city. It is therefore the Place du Trocadéro which would be pedestrianized, leaving a green esplanade and an exceptional view.
In the end, it will be more than 16,000m² of additional green spaces, 35,000m² of roads returned to pedestrians and transport such as bicycles and scooters. More than 200 trees will also be planted, in order to perfect this veritable green lung.
