RESPONSIBLE TOURISM POLICY
Acknowledging that it is paramount to keep a sustainable tourism development and taking into account the principles adopted specifically in the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism, the Évora Olive Hotel undertakes to carry out a sustainable management of its activities by embracing commitments aimed at preventing, eliminating or reducing the impact of our facilities and activities, whether indoors or outdoors, as well as to optimize the sustainability of our establishment by improving its behaviour towards the environment.
For this purpose, the Évora Olive Hotel adopted the following responsible tourism policy, through which it undertakes to comply with the requirements set out in the Biosphere Hotel referential, which includes, among others, the legal requirements that regulate the effects caused by the tourism activity.
Therefore, we undertake to motivate and train our collaborators with training and awareness actions on the principles of Responsible Tourism, to promote good environmental practices and participate in external activities, and to inform both internally and externally on the progress and environmental actions of the company.
We also undertake to fight against sexual exploitation or any other form of exploitation and commercial harassment, in particular of children, adolescents, women and minorities. We also commit to adopt accessibility measures for people with disabilities (sensory, physical, intellectual and psychic).
One of our main objectives is to improve our sustainable management by committing on the continuous enhancement of all sustainability scopes: social, economic and environmental, as well as customer satisfaction. For this, all future projects for the extension of facilities or activities will be subject to criteria aiming at sustainability and efficiency on the use of resources.
This Responsible Tourism Policy will be updated whenever circumstances demand it, adopting and publishing new sustainability goals.
