Sustainability at Hotel Altéora Futuroscope

As a long-standing sustainable hotel in Poitiers, Hotel Altéora has been committed to sustainable development for many years now, through an environmentally friendly approach to tourism.

Our efforts to protect the environment

Un Toit pour les abeilles

We have been working to save the bees since 2015, by developing colonies and supporting beekeeping by sponsoring beekeepers.

Planting 2000 trees

To offset the carbon footprint of our customers, partners and suppliers,
in 2019 we made the decision to sponsor a forest regeneration project in Senillé, 30 minutes from the hotel.

Reviving the Poitevin poplar

We are supporting the launch of an initiative to replant and revive the Poitevin poplar.

Waste recovery and recycling

What we’ve achieved


19% less water use per customer


38% drop in electricity consumption per customer


45% reduction in non-recyclable waste


We collect and recycle face masks.

To reduce waste and recycle masks, we have set up collection points for used face masks in partnership with PLAXTIL and Essaimons


Cigarette butts

We collect cigarette butts which are recycled by MéGO and converted into street furniture.

We collect corks, which are reclaimed by Echo-Mer and used for sound and heat insulation for flooring and ceilings, as well as upholstery for footstools and cushions.

Recovering and recycling

Other waste that we recover and recycle:

We recover cooking oil used in the Le Bistro restaurant to make biofuel and collect cans to be recycled.

In 2013 Recy’go partnered with La Poste, the postal service, to provide collection bins. As a result, 500 kg of paper was collected in 2014.

In 2015 we introduced

recycling bins in our rooms and car parks, leading to 1.02 tons of waste being recycled.

We collect:

  • Coffee grounds which release methane and are used as compost and to make electricity;
  • plastic, cardboard, and glass for recycling;
  • ink cartridges for Xerox to recycle;
  • non-recyclable waste such as cans of paint and solvents to be disposed of;
  • batteries to recover the metal that can be reused to make everyday items, such as hardware of car bodywork;
  • and light bulbs, lamps and neon lights.

Raising awareness all round

What’s more, in addition to our energy-saving facilities, we invite our staff and customers to join us in our efforts, by not changing bed linen and towels every day.

We can go one step further:
