Property's Green Action

Desalinization, Portugal
The Alvor desalination project is a pioneering action in Portugal. It was distinguished with the first prize for Environmental Sustainability by Turismo de Portugal. The desalination plant allows the use of sea water (after treatment) in the irrigation systems of green areas, in pools and lakes of Hotels located in the region of Alvor.

Internal campaign to reduce the use of water, electricity and paper
All the locations were distributed posters and stickers, which were strategically placed and aimed at raising awareness of the reduction of water, paper and electricity consumption.

Paper for Food
The Food Banks launched a “Paper for Food” campaign with environmental and solidarity goals, in which the paper collected (newspapers, magazines, leaflets, etc.) was converted into food products.

Biodiversity Preservation
In Portugal, there are Pousadas located in protected areas (e.g. Pousada do Infante located in the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina). Hotels located in Mozambique occupy 6,500 m2 of protected area and those located in South Africa occupy 50,000 m2 of protected area. All these locations are subject to biodiversity preservation regulations, which are supervised by the managing entities of the respective areas. In this context, our locations cooperate with the initiatives carried out by these entities.

Certifications

WWF

WWF aims to build a future where human needs are met in harmony with nature.

It is focused around 6 ambitious goals with people at the center:
WWF's work has evolved from saving species and landscapes to addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Recognizing that the problems facing our planet are increasingly more complex and urgent. The new strategy puts people at the center and organizes our work around six key areas: forests, marine, freshwater, wildlife, food and climate. By linking these six areas in an integrated approach, WWF can direct all resources to protecting vulnerable places, species and communities worldwide.

People are at the center because together we can change the trajectory of the threats to nature, and help ensure nature's ability to provide - for the sake of every living thing, including ourselves. To accomplish goals, WWF works to educate and influence people into making sustainable choices and decisions, including those who work in business and make decisions around the use of natural resources, and those who work in government and set policy that impacts nature.
