We want to transform the way we operate hotels by putting sustainability at the heart of everything we do, says Brune Poirson, Chief Sustainability Officer at Accor. We achieve this through concrete solutions, tools and the implementation of best practices that enhance the guest experience. BE WTR is a perfect partner to accelerate the elimination of plastic water bottles from the guest experience, while promoting innovations and high-end hospitality products that our guests are looking for.

BE WTR, founded in Switzerland in 2019, has expanded rapidly to span Europe, Middle East, Southeast China and North America.  The innovation and mission-driven company is today the obvious choice of many of the world’s best chefs and hoteliers. – This collaboration is an important milestone for us, says Mike Hecker, founder of BE WTR.

We want to help the world getting rid of single use plastics, and at the same time offer a better, premium hydration for people. I am happy and proud that Accor shares the same values, and during the development of this partnership I could really witness how important sustainability is for Accor.
