Environmental Commitments

In order to preserve the quality of our environment and limit our impact linked to tourism activity, since 2019 we have decided to commit ourselves to tourism that respects nature, people and the territory that hosts it.
We are therefore proud to have been awarded the Green Globe label in 2021, an environmental and societal certification program dedicated to the tourism and hospitality sector.

The certification was renewed in 2022 and 2023 thanks to our constant efforts to improve our environmental impact.

 

Our guests' well-being

Responsible cocktail

Part of the profits from the sale of our Coco Loco cocktails is donated to coral restoration associations around the island. By consuming these cocktails, our customers are helping to preserve our environment!

Sisley Spa

Our Sisley Spa offers our guests a range of wellness packages, including pilates classes and pochon massages. Yoga classes and sports sessions are also offered every week by our infinity pool.

Bed and bath linen

To preserve the environment and save water and energy, our guests have the option of not changing their sheets and towels on a daily basis.

Tropical garden

Our guests can discover the local flora by taking a stroll through our tropical garden, made up of over 16 different varieties of local flowers and plants. All in-room flowers are also tropical plants, helping to reduce CO2 emissions linked to transport.

Responsible cuisine

Our chef Arnaud Faye offers several vegetarian or vegan options on the RIVYERA menu to satisfy different diets and reduce meat and fish consumption. The restaurant also offers a selection of organic wines and works with local suppliers, such as for bottles of “Jackson” rum made on site, St Barth beers and Café de St Barth.

Environmental commitment

Ecological and healthy cleaning

Our cleaning products respect the environment and the health of our employees. Our floors and surfaces are also cleaned ecologically using dry steam.

Mangrove plantation

Together with the INE (Island Nature Experience) association, our employees have taken part in Mangrove replanting operations around the Petit Cul de Sac pond.

Clean-up operations are also regularly organized on the island with the help of our employees.

Elimination of plastic

All in-room water bottles have been replaced by bottles made from renewable and recyclable raw materials, eliminating 32,000 plastic bottles a year. All Christopher products have eco-responsible packaging.

Water conservation

The hotel has its own water treatment and desalination plant, making it completely self-sufficient in terms of water production for the entire site. The hotel’s equipment, such as the watering system and the water regulators on the taps, are designed to optimize water management.
The Christopher is also working with ACQUACHIARA to offer its own drinking water solution, using reusable glass bottles.

Waste management

Our teams sort the contents of room waste garbage cans for subsequent recycling. We avoid the use of single-use items wherever possible. We provide newspapers, magazines, menus and room information in digital formats; paper newspapers are on request only.

Energy efficiency

All the machines used in the hotel have been replaced with energy-efficient equipment. All lighting is low-energy LED.

Responsible cuisine

Our head chef has signed a pact on food waste, pledging to reduce food losses by 50% by 2025. The local fishermen with whom the hotel works have committed to responsible fishing by signing a fishing charter.

Construction

The Christopher is committed to working with local architects and companies to rethink the design of its new buildings to meet new territorial environmental standards. This was notably the case for the construction of its three villas.

Social commitment

St Barth’s Market

Once a month, our employees take part in the St Barth market in aid of an association: the Gustavia school association for school projects, the Coral Shepherd association to replant coral around the island… Profits are donated to local social and environmental projects.

First dives for children

L’hôtel Christopher a organisé avec l’association Coral Sheperd des baptêmes de plongée dans la piscine de l’hôtel, sur donation. Les bénéfices sont reversés au profit de l’association.

Wellness workshops on donation

Our Spa Sisley organizes wellness workshops open to all and accessible by donation, with proceeds going to local associations such as St Barth Handicap.

Kids workshops

Hotel Christopher organizes free workshops for local and client’s children, offering them an entertaining hands-on activity for events such as Christmas, Carnival or Easter.

Partnerships

Hotel Christopher supports a number of local associations, including the Croix Rouge St Barth, St Barth Handicap and the Sargasse Project, a St Barthélemy-based start-up aiming to give sargasse algae a useful purpose.

Promoting local heritage

Our concierge service offers a wide range of activities and experiences linked to the local environment and culture. The hotel regularly exhibits the work of local artists in the lobby.
Guest relations highlight offers to discover natural and cultural heritage, as well as protected areas.

Biorock

Hotel Christopher is located in a protected natural area and supports the Artireef project led by Ouanalao Reef teams to restore the Pointe Milou reef, using the Biorock process.
To support the Ouanalao Reef association, the Christopher hotel has contributed financially and invites all guests to make a donation at the time of booking.

Employee well-being

Coral restoration

Some of our team members with diving certificates were able to take part in clean-up and coral planting actions with the Coral Shepherd association.

Training and awareness-raising

We make all our employees aware of environmental issues during their induction day and by organizing “green meetings” every quarter. Every year, we invite all our staff to create a commitment sheet for each department, to encourage them to think about the right environmental gestures and stick to them throughout the season.
Last but not least, the hotel offers reduced rates to all our employees for scuba diving baptisms and sessions to raise their awareness of the seabed.

Employees of the month.

Every month, department heads and management elect an employee who has demonstrated an outstanding attitude or action.

Cleaning actions

Every year, the hotel and its staff take part in the island’s Clean Up, organized by the Lions Club and the Rotary Club. The Christo team Clean Up group has also been set up to organize the clean-up of Pointe Milou.
