Euro Disney Unveils Sustainable Resort Concept

Euro Disney Group and Groupe Pierre & Vacances Center Parcs have unveiled a new sustainable resort concept called Les Villages Nature de Val d'Europe ("Villages Nature"), located four miles south of Disneyland Paris near the Brie Forest.

The project-developed around a large geothermal lagoon-aims to provide harmony between man and nature through activities such as horseback riding, hiking, visiting an organic farm, and boating.

The companies have formed a Sustainable Action Plan that relies on the following 10 measurable targets geared at reducing the destination's ecological footprint, ensuring social responsibility, and developing synergies with local communities:

•Zero carbon
•Zero waste
•Sustainable transportation
•Local and sustainable materials
•Local and sustainable food products
•Sustainable water
•Natural habitats and wild life
•Culture and heritage
•Local partnerships and fair trade
•Quality of life and well-being

The project's first phase, which will include 1,730 apartments or cottages, is expected to open in 2015.
