Comprehensive overview of Planète Barrière

With Planète Barrière, the Group upholds a development model that respects people, the environment and the local economy.

Planète Barrière - an ambitious, voluntary approach

The Barrière Spirit is a way of life. The Group upholds a development model that respects people, the environment and the local economy. This world of shared responsibility comes together under the Planète Barrière banner.


Helping to create the world of tomorrow, Planète Barrière, a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach, advocates a unifying vision. This all-encompassing ethical code considers social, economic and environmental aspects as a whole. It focuses on five areas: Governance & Dialogue, Customer Relations, Responsible Employer, The Environment, and Local Development.


The Group chose to structure its approach around the ISO 26000 international standard for Corporate Social Responsibility. This ambitious policy extends beyond the scope of Sustainable Development by putting people at the heart of the Barrière group's consideration and actions. In January 2016, the CSR Score evaluation carried out by AFNOR Certification highlighted the progress already made with an initial performance of 63/100. In each of the Group's establishments, a Sustainable Development representative acts as an ambassador and a catalyst for this corporate dynamic.


Strong local roots


The Barrière establishments embrace their role in energy transition and demonstrate innovation on a daily basis. Mindful of preserving biodiversity, they are involved in sorting waste, and its recycling and reuse (circular economy). While ensuring the establishments provide a healthy environment for its guests, the Group is investing in the construction of buildings that are more environmentally friendly. Its aim is to firmly entrench the concept of sustainable tourism.


The only one of its kind in France, Casino Barrière Royan's unique bio air conditioning process has decreased its energy use by 75%. Resort Barrière Ribeauvillé is breaking new ground with biogas heating, a 100% natural solution that covers all its heating needs for the balneotherapy centre and the hotel. A front runner in reducing its environmental impact, each year the Group saves the equivalent electrical consumption of a town of 20,000 inhabitants.


By supporting the local economy in the areas in which it operates, the Group favours local resources for its development. It does this not only by promoting regional culture and heritage; it also implements a local procurement policy. "Tables Barrière" advocates a locavore approach with seasonal and regional produce, even including the honey produced at Barrière establishments.


Benevolence and moral behaviour


The approach is centred on responsible management and is fuelled by reflection on how to improve company life. The promotion of diversity, the employment of disabled people, and employees' involvement in collective actions are just several examples of the day-to-day commitment of the Group's employees.


With Planète Barrière, relations are becoming increasingly more transparent. The company's governance ensures fair business dealings and dialogue with concerned parties. Employees are involved on a participatory basis with a consultation on CSR priorities. These are concrete initiatives that will be applied in the field.


The Group's responsibility also extends to its casinos, where Barrière's experience and expertise are put to good use to implement an exemplary Responsible Gaming policy. This means concrete action to support guests through an all-encompassing, innovative and unique approach.
