Nineteen economic actors of Cagnes-sur-Mer have received the Consume-Less label for their commitment to sustainable tourism. They thus reinforce the territorial attractiveness and visibility of their city.
Local restaurateurs, hoteliers, shopkeepers, artists and craftsmen who have taken part in the European ConsumeLess Plus* project are committed to taking action to reduce their water and energy consumption, to reduce their waste production and to promote local products.
As a city committed to sustainable development and labeled “Sustainable Territory”, the choice of the municipality of Cagnes-sur-Mer was an obvious one.

Preserve and promote our territories
The actions carried out by tourism professionals will also help to raise awareness among tourists and citizens of the importance of adopting sustainable behaviors by taking care of the territories they visit and, at the same time, promote the historical heritage, natural resources and local products.
The goal is to offer travelers an authentic and responsible tourism experience. Everyone can participate by adopting an environmentally friendly behavior and promote it with the #Consumelesstravelers.
According to Charles Galbois, representing the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry: “Faced with new consumer expectations and consumption patterns, the challenge is to promote a sustainable tourism model to make the Côte d’Azur destination even more attractive and stamp it as an ‘eco-responsible destination’. Much more than a simple trend, the ecological dimension is now an important criterion in travelers’ purchasing decisions. The Consume-Less label is a concrete step towards sustainable tourism. The Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry supports businesses in this commitment and I am proud to present the label to the shopkeepers, craftsmen, accommodation providers and restaurant owners in Cagnac who are committed to creating a stimulating dynamic in our region.
For Sylvain Roger, Director of Territorial Poles & Director of the Cagnes-sur-Mer Information Office for the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolitan Tourist Office: “Today, through the creation of a CSR department within the NCA MTO, we are showing that, like tourism as a whole, we need to be focused on the ecological transition and well-being at work. The issue of sustainable development is an argument in the decision and choice of a destination for both leisure and business tourism around the world. This commitment is also important in accompanying our partners on this path.”
For Alex Khalil, President of the Federation of Associations of Merchants and Craftsmen of Cagnes-sur-Mer: “Our commitment to a sustainable development approach continues, after the eco challenge label, today 19 establishments in Cagnes have received the Consume-Less label. It is a great pride for our federation to contribute to the fact that our town, in addition to its sustainable territory label, becomes a tourist destination committed to a sustainable ecological and environmental approach. I would like to salute the excellent work of the CCI and its teams who have led this project with efficiency and rigor without forgetting the involvement of the city services and the tourist office.
