Environmental Responsibility

The environmental changes in Monte Carlo

Since the year 2007, the Société des Bains de Mer, which owns the Monte Carlo casino and many more famous buildings in that area, has been taking part in many actions to protect the environment. The first Environmental Charter, which explains all the commitments made by this organization, was signed during 2007-2012. As environmental issues constantly grew larger and larger, it was decided to take new actions and this situation led to the signing of the second Environmental Charter on 3rd of December in 2013 agreeing to 39 different actions for 2013-2016, all of which were launched previously.


There were actions regarding these areas:

  • environmental management
  • information, awareness and stakeholder involvement;
  • energy management;
  • control of water consumption;
  • actions relating to ambient air, atmosphere and transport;
  • preserving biodiversity;
  • responsible purchasing;
  • selective sorting and collection of waste;
  • renovations and sustainable construction.

The Société des Bains de Mer now has a strict policy of protecting the environment, and it has become an important part of its development strategy, which includes such areas as games, accommodation and catering, organization of shows or events of any kind.

The organic way of thinking


Moreover, there has lately been a higher number of customers who are specifically sensitive to environmental issues and because of this reason the environmental policy was successfully carried out by the company under the signature “Be Green”.

This decision is connected to the wish of the Société des Bains de Mer to actively contribute to the many commitments made by Monaco in favour of the protection of the environment and, to be exact, the Kyoto Protocol.

In April 2014, Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort and Monte-Carlo Beach were finally recognized for the first time by Green Globe, which is a certification for sustainable tourism. This certification, which was granted after an audit, was renewed on April 23, 2016 for the third year. The Thermes Marins obtained this certification for the first time just on January 8, 2016.

The Elsa restaurant, which is on the Monte Carlo beach, is currently certified as an 100% organic restaurant, which means that all the ingredients that are being used for the dishes come from organic farming and they are ensured by a complete traceability. There has also been a decision to manage responsibly both the waste produced by various activities and the origin of the paper which is used there.

The actions which were made by the Société des Bains de Mer were a success, and they are a sign to environmentalists all around the world that Monte Carlo is taking serious actions to protect nature. This is a great time to start planning your trip to this beautiful and now environment-friendly place, and since Monte Carlo is mostly known for its casino, it would be a good idea to learn more about rules of casino games. Whether you are a professional who wants to refresh knowledge or someone who is just starting to get involved in the interesting world of casino, has everything you need. This is an excellent way to make sure that you will truly be able to enjoy Monte Carlo in all of its glory.

The path to a successful future

Obtaining these certifications by external organizations was a great success because it ensures the longevity of the environmental policy of the Société des Bains de Mer. Since the Société des Bains de Mer has agreed with the criteria which were used in the certification, it is an assurance for third parties and theclients of the casino of the actions which are being carried out by the organization to protect the environment. This has also raised the level of awareness regarding environmental issues.
