Our environmental philosophy is based on the adoption of a new eco-culture and the enhancement of the environmental awareness that extends throughout bluegr Hotels & Resorts.
A water management system is in place to preserve and maintain the sustainable consumption of resources including automated irrigation systems, smart usage policies, efficient water saving equipment and continues staff training. Our solid waste management system is focused to reduce waste at the source by using reusable materials and minimize the use of plastic in all processes. The recycling performance is monitored monthly and our plan includes the recycling of glass, paper, batteries, light bulbs, scrap metals and electronic devices. Recycling policies are followed by staff members, and our guests are also encouraged to participate.

Construction and building elements come from local vendors and are eco labelled. A KNX automation system is installed in the redesigned guest rooms making them energy efficient by controlling heating, cooling, ventilation, and lighting. Led lamps provide 85% of hotel’s lighting and reduces the energy consumption. Solar energy collected by individual panels is used for warm water throughout the hotel.

Pollution of natural resources is controlled by conducting monthly chemical and microbiological analyses by a certified laboratory member of Tentamus group. A strategic partnership is made with Diversey Inc. and most of cleaning agents and detergents used are eco labelled and plant based. Our environmental management system is certified under ISO 14001:2015

The landscape of our hotel is part of our environmental culture preserving local flower and herbs species with a low a structure factor. Our Beach is annually awarded with Blue flag since 1993. The «Blue Flag» is a European symbol of water quality and is awarded under strict criteria to organized beaches and marinas managed by coastal municipalities, hoteliers and other bodies. The «BLUE FLAG» Voluntary Program started in the 80’s. Today, 51 countries from almost all continents, not just Europe, are participating in this voluntary program. The internationally responsible operator of the Program, the Fee (Foundation for Environmental Education), in collaboration with the Coordinators of its member countries, from time to time reforms the award criteria, making their implementation more stringent, with the aim of improving coastal conditions and eliminate the sea pollution.
