Sustainability at SENTIDO Hotels & Resorts
Travelife is an independant, internationally recognised sustainability award scheme for the tourism industry. Around 100 criteria are assessed, including fair wages for staff and measures to minimise energy and water use, reduce waste and to give preference to local suppliers.
The concept of the Travelife organisation fits perfectly with SENTIDO Hotels & Resorts. Responsible treatment of nature and the environment is fundamental to SENTIDO. Our own quality management provides products and services that need to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Each hotel must demonstrate responsibility towards the environment, must use natural resources such as water and energy conscientiously. It must also maintain good relations at the destination and preferably source from local suppliers.
The Travelife Award is given to hotels that assume special responsibility for sustainability in tourism. With approximately 100 individual criteria to meet, hotels are under the microscope when being assessed. Some of these include fair wages, reducing water and energy consumption, reducing waste products and sourcing mainly from local suppliers.
Many SENTIDO hotels have so far been rewarded by Travelife with an award.
