Green Transition


Project description

Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas has adopted several programs over the past year to reduce its carbon footprint while continuing to be an inspiring model for the hospitality industry in Greece. The programs address water consumption and quality, energy efficiency, constant monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions, reducing the use of paper and plastic, and establishing an in-house composting system. Each program presents innovative solutions that complement traditional best practices that are now quite widespread. Innovations include effective staff training in water-saving techniques, the use of robots to clean swimming pools to avoid frequent water changes, the installation of electric car charging stations, and the use of heat pumps that provide great energy savings for air conditioning and heating of common areas. Paper and plastic are practically banned, while 80 percent of organic waste from the kitchens is turned into a top-quality compost used in the hotel's organic garden. Finally, all new buildings at Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas include "green roofs" thanks to planting techniques that allow the creation of autonomous ecosystems, encouraging local flora and fauna to remain in the environment.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
