SUSTAINABILITY & CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Sustainable tourism promotes the respect towards the natural environment and ensures that local communities obtain their fair share of economic and social benefits from the tourism activity.
And therefore in Georgioupolis Resort&Spa we are committed to take the necessary actions for the progressive reduction of the environmental impact generated by our activities as well as to enhance the advancement of the local society. In this sense we have adopted this philosophy and actively apply its principles through enhanced sustainability actions, some of which refer to:
- Implementing an organic waste-water treatment process.
- The use of bleach free cleaning products.
- Implementation of a Recycle Policy.
- Clean Ocean Project.
- The Use of Solar Energy.
- We apply energy consumption control procedures.
- We promote a healthy lifestyle.
- We buy locally produced goods.
- We invest and expand locally.
- We provide stable employment opportunities for local working staff.
- We share economic benefits with the local community.
Furthermore, via targeted actions we participate to fund rising community actions and we offer the opportunity to the local society to receive part of the economic growth generated by the tourism activity through stable round the year employment.
In order to ensure the implementation and maintenance of a management system that assures the compliance with the aforementioned sustainability objectives set by Georgioupolis Resor&Spa in accordance with our commitment, we apply Total Quality Management procedures led by the idea of efficient ecofriendly business techniques and tangible results for our guests, for the environment of Crete as well as for the local society.
In this context, your contribution and your help through little actions can make a big difference overall. Please find below some ideas and recommendations which our nature as well as the local society will mostly appreciate:
