The programme Seeds is based on gestures, actions and dynamics for a better and more responsible future.
It resulted from the need to highlight the sustainability practices adopted by hotels.
The Seeds programme reflects concern with the environment, and the surrounding economy and community.
Seeds are gestures that sow the future.

CO² & Climate ChangeCompanies’ activities contribute significantly to climate change, due to both the consumption of energy in the different phases of the production cycle, and the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) resulting from their activities. Thus, arises the need to undertake sustained efforts to limit the average temperature increase to 1.5ºC, in line with the commitment made in the Paris Pledge for Action.More

PlasticWe appreciate the role of plastics in society today and we understand the enormous environmental challenge they pose, namely due to the proliferation of single-use plastics and the inefficiency of recycling policies. Given the nature of our activities, we felt compelled to jointly develop more sustainable production, logistics, and consumption processes.More

Nature & BiodiversityThe fact that our companies depend strongly on Nature's capital and they can either directly or indirectly change or destroy natural habitats means we take issues related to the protection of nature and biodiversity very seriously.More

Inequalities & Inclusive developmentThese are some of the most pressing challenges of our times, towards which we can contribute in different ways. As employers we have an important role in creating skilled jobs, in implementing staff development policies and promoting diversity in its different forms. In terms of the community, we see in education an important, powerful tool for combatting inequalities and creating a more just and inclusive society.More

Supporting the CommunityIn the scope of our activities, we seek to reinforce the resilience and autonomy of the communities around us, contributing to the eradication of poverty in its different forms. This is closely linked to the previous point, taking into account that we seek to enhance the impact of our actions for empowering communities and increasing their resilience.More
All our hotels have practices that ensure effective and responsible environmental management, with special focus on issues related to the optimization of water and energy consumption, preservation and dissemination of the destination's natural values and favor seasonal products from local producers in the majority of the catering spaces.
Sustainable resource management
The business has been developing environmental awareness with regard to the consumption of water and electricity. This is a particularly sensitive area, since these elements are absolutely indispensable for the hotels to carry out their business. However, there is the clear notion that the various hotel users - employees, suppliers or guests- must be made aware of the need to reduce the use of water and electricity and, in this way, reduce more and more the ecological footprint.
Waste management and separation
Waste management and separation are assuming ever greater importance for all units. Several actions have been implemented to raise the awareness of employees to the sorting of waste, while mechanisms were put in place to ensure guests also separate waste effectively. We intend these actions to become reality and a regular practice in all hotel units.
Recycling of cooking oil
Delivering cooking oil and its substitutes to the competent entities for recycling and reuse is a concern that has become increasingly present in all units. Here, too, the commitment of our employees is paramount. We have conducted several actions to raise their awareness to help lower waste oil production.
