Within the French government, Poirson championed the anti-waste law, which among other things addressed plastic pollution, and has been a member of major organisations both in France and internationally.


“I am delighted to be joining a global leader in hospitality and to be able to contribute my experience and beliefs, and to take action,” she said. “Through more than 5,100 hotels worldwide, hundreds of owners and partners, several hundred million guests and the experienced teams in the field, we have a wonderful opportunity to take practical and decisive action on a daily basis. In this new role, I want to help to further the vision that Accor has had since its creation – bringing to life positive, contemporary and responsible hospitality.”


Poirson began her career in London, within NESTA, the UK-based Innovation Foundation, subsequently moving to the French Development Agency, and the Veolia group in India, before working in a green start-up incubator in Boston.


Accor’s programmes around business ethics, responsible tourism, environmental sustainability, community engagement, diversity and inclusivity include Planet 21 – Acting Here; Accor Solidarity; RiiSE and the ALL Heartist Fund.


Earth Day is an annual event first held on 22 April, 1970, which now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally, including one billion people in more than 193 countries who demonstrate support for environmental protection.
