Planet 21


For almost 30 years, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has been committed to proactively protecting its local environments. At Carton House, A Fairmont Managed Hotel, we believe in not only protecting our own 1,100 acres but the whole planet. We have many sustainable initiatives in place at the resort and continue to work to achieve platinum status of the Accor Planet 21 after achieving gold status at the beginning of 2023. 

In 2021, Fairmont was awarded 'Best Sustainable Hotel - Global Group' in the Marie Claire UK Sustainability Awards.
