Our Sustainable commitment

Our guests and staff well-being cannot be separated from that of the environment.

Principe Hotel is increasingly involved in the concept of sustainability and eager to encourage their guests to know about its stronger commitment to a healthier and safer environment.

Sustainable tourism is on the rise: consumer demand is growing, travel industry suppliers are developing new green programs, and governments are creating new policies to encourage sustainable practices in tourism.

“Sustainable tourism” develops four main themes:

  • effective sustainability planning;
  • maximizing social and economic benefits for the local community;
  • enhancing cultural heritage;
  • and reducing negative impacts to the environment.

 

Being a hotel, our supply chain is composed of many subjects: our guests, suppliers, external clients, and all the different department within the hotel. Our goal is to measure our supply chain performances not only in economic terms, but also its social and ecological impact, achieving great results as regards sustainability.

In order to reach all of this, our deepest commitment is in strengthen our ecological approach, confident that it will be easy to overcome all possible limitations by relying on our General Manager and our staff focus on the subject.

While we are putting in place our sustainability system, we can tell you about some of our actions:

  • Energy rating

Principe hotel was built in 2010, and in 2020 reached its energy rating at class A2.

  • Eliminating Plastic

We have abolished single use plastic in all our hotel outlets.  We now only use reusable plastic, for example cleaning refill products.  When water is given in glass bottles we use biodegradable containers.

  • Encouraging guests to be green

Adding the environment friendly card to take care of your linens. To encourage guests not change their linen each day, also introducing a towel reuse option.

  • Conserving energy

We are already underway with renewable energy as we use solar panels.

Hotel illumination :energy efficient lights are installed throughout the hotel, this has reduced energy waste.

Air conditioning / central heating : we have our own centralized air conditioning and heating, this controlled by us to stop waste.

Temperatures in common areas are set to respect the environment.

  • Paperless hotel

We are using recycled paper throughout the hotel when printing. Less paper has been reduced as it always gets reused.

  • Recycling bins

Separate bin collection have been put in place.

Organic – unsorted waster – plastic – glass – paper

  • KM Zero food products

Fight against waste and circular cooking to make it possible to enhance the waste parts. Local products and producers to enhance it and reduce pollution from transport and packaging.

  • No pollution

We provide complimentary bicycles to all guests to explore the town center and stop them using their vehicles.

  • Water consumption

The hotel has modern implants.

The garden uses native plants that do not require a lot of water. Through an osmosis process we use water from a well regularly reported to water the plants

  • Employees

The organization offers equal employment opportunities to women, local minorities and others, including in management positions, while restraining child labor.

 

We know this is just the starting point of a long journey: the path to a more sustainable hotel is a never-ending journey made of many small steps. Principe Hotel wants to take this as an opportunity to improve his performances and align his values with the surrounding territories and cultures.
