Six milestones have marked the operation of Creta Maris in 2017. All of them have played an important role in the resort’s Sustainability Program:
Creta Maris a Sustainability promoter
Intensive briefing of our staff on sustainability issues through personal communication, and organization of lectures and seminars.
Zero Waste Hotel
In cooperation with the F4F program and in order to become the first Zero Waste hotel in Greece, we proceeded with recycling and waste management within the hotel facilities, which will lead to the elimination of food waste from the hotel's dining areas and will make Creta Maris Beach Resort the first Zero Waste hotel in Greece.
Promotion of “We do local” philosophy
Better provision of information to the staff and guests regarding the “We do local” philosophy that Creta Maris embraces. Establishment of a special thematic day of the week and throughout the tourist season, during which Greek/ Cretan actions are carried out (Greek cooking lessons, Greek language lessons, etc.)
Actions to reduce energy and water consumption
Continuous effort to reduce energy and water consumption in order to protect the environment.
Actions to strengthen the local producers
Measurable influence of the hotel towards the local suppliers aiming to branded and quality local production of edible products.
