Sustainable development


Signatory of the Relais & Châteaux manifesto and the charter on the preservation of biodiversity and natural resources, the Saint James Paris has always taken action to protect the environment. A strong and lasting commitment for all the team to fulfil our eco-citizen guests.


A corner of country in Paris, from the garden to the plate!

A herb garden has been created in our park. It is looked after by Andy, our gardener, and used by our Chef and his team but also by our barmen who pick the herbs and the flowers to flavor their creations.

In the heart of the city, the Saint James Paris is a peaceful oasis of green where Pilou, the house cat, enjoys taking a nap in the sun. At a few steps, in the beehives hidden in the trees and delighted by this vegetation, our best friends the bees work hard in order to produce a delicious honey that will be served at breakfast or used by our Pastry Chef Sophie Bonnefond.

Going green!

Complimentary bicycles are available for our guests wishing to go for a ride in the capital! For the others, an electric BMW i3 car can be rented for a small fee. Whatever you chose, the Saint James Paris offers you to move green!

The hotel also offers guests coming with an electric car to charge it free of charge. Various stations are available for Tesla, BMW and others.

Last but not least, the Saint James Paris is the first hotel in France to be ISO 50001 certified for the control and the reduction of its energy use. This certification implies a strong involvement of all the employees, with an audit taking place every year in order to check the efficiency of our energetic policy. We are all very proud of this unifying commitment for the protection of our planet and hope to be an example for many other hotels in France!
