Sustainability

In recent years sustainability matters have become increasingly important for European Union policies. The hospitality industry has always showed its interest in contributing to the environment aspect of sustainability by focusing amongst others on:

              • More efficient use of resources, including water and energy;
              • Handling of waste;
              • Application of new, greener technologies.
