The raison d’être of le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès was conceived with all the employees and stakeholders of the destination Cannes during multiple workshops held from 2021 onwards. Its definition has been the subject of in-depth reflection by the company on its identity and the stakes involved in its actions. It aims to unite all Palais teams around a common, responsible and committed project: “The (he)art of sustainable hospitality“. A purpose broken down into three major objectives: “Connect”, “Care” and “Reveal”.
“In view of the growing climate emergency and the scale of the environmental challenges we face, now is not the time for reflection, but for action. The commitment of Cannes and its Palais des Festivals must be total. By becoming a “Palais with a mission”, our flagship of Cannes’ tourism and events economy is confirming its determination to work every day for a sustainable and responsible events business.
I congratulate the SEMEC team, whose approach is in line with the actions put in place by Cannes Town Hall in favor of environmental preservation, notably through massive investment in clean energies such as green hydrogen, biomass or even solar power for the effective decarbonization of our living area in order to achieve our “zero carbon” plan by 2050.”
