THE GRIMALDI FORUM: ECO-RESPONSIBLE FROM THE START

From the very beginning, the Monaco Government Congress and Cultural Centre has incorporated the key concept of respecting the environment into the specifications for the construction of their building, whether insulation, energy use, air treatment, etc. A company in full economic growth, since its first ISO 14001 certification in 2008 it has still managed to improve its energy efficiency by 35%, multiply its sorting rate 2.5x, and divide water consumption per visitor by more than half.

A WELL-KNOWN AND CERTIFIED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Grimaldi Forum Monaco is one of the first European Congress and Cultural Centres to obtain ISO 14001 environmental certification.

THE GRIMALDI FORUM ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

In line with H.S.H. Prince Albert II's proactive policy in favour of sustainable development, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco runs a management system that aims to reduce the impact their event activity has on the environment, and is also a participant in the National Energy Transition Pact. Alongside their employees, suppliers, partners, customers and visitors, the Monaco Government Congress and Cultural Centre is making their daily activities increasingly more eco-responsible, while still maintaining the excellence of their services; their efforts are concentrated on 6 priority areas of action:

A COMMITMENT INCORPORATED
INTO THE ENVIRONMENTAL DYNAMIC
  OF THE PRINCIPALITY OF MONACO
WORKING ALONGSIDE THE PRINCE ALBERT
II OF MONACO FOUNDATION

Promoting a new balance with Nature was already at the heart of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco's concerns in June of 2006 when he decided to create his Foundation as a means of protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development, both at home and abroad.

Active on a global scale, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (FPA2) has set out to unite scientists, politicians and economic and civil partners around an objective that is central to our future - protecting the ocean and the earth. The Foundation's ongoing work has made it possible to take encouraging steps forward, both in terms of safeguarding endangered species and improving the living conditions of rural communities by implementing new ethical, sustainable solutions.

MISSION FOR THE ENERGY TRANSITION OF MONACO

Since its construction, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco has been committed to reducing the impact that its events have on the environment, which is reflected in the ISO 14001 certification that it has held since 2008.

In 2018, the Forum wanted to further increase its engagement within the Principality and became one of the first economic actors to join the National Energy Transition Pact overseen by the Mission for the Energy Transition of Monaco, which manages projects that limit greenhouse gas emissions and develop renewable energy in the Principality. 

WORKING WITH THE TOURIST AND CONVENTION AUTHORITY FOR A MORE RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

The tourism sector in Monaco follows the environmental policy implemented by the Princely Government. All stakeholders are committed to a more responsible tourism and put solutions in place that optimise resource management.

Destination Monaco and its partners are working to preserve water, biodiversity, and to fight against global warming. 

For example, the majority of hotels have opted for environmental certification, and emphasis is placed on soft mobility thanks to the development of a public transportation network and efficient intermodality solutions. Activities are regularly organised to raise awareness about topics like sorting, the fight against food waste, protecting biodiversity, etc.
