The Group’s dedication to the principles of sustainability is reflected in the programme’s 5 pillars:

Concerned about the planet: We minimise the environmental footprint of our 19 hotels and protect the biodiversity of our 5 destinations
“We remain committed to our social responsibility and ensure ethics and transparency in all our operations. We recognise that our progress is inextricably linked with the prosperity of the local communities in our destinations, we continuously improve our environmental performance, and
we invest in digital transformation and the professional development of our employees. At a time when tourism’s shift from quantity to quality and the need for the protection of the environment are more critical and relevant than ever, sustainability is a lever of growth and a key criterion for our competitiveness”, notes Stavros Mitsis, Managing Director of the Group.
