Taking care of the planet

Our commitment to the environment

At MedPlaya, we have an environmental policy designed in alignment with our mission to care for the planet. To fulfil this vision, we have implemented measures aimed at significantly reducing our environmental impact.

Firstly, we have taken concrete actions, such as optimizing energy and water usage in our hotels, striving for efficiency and the reduction of unnecessary consumption. Additionally, we have worked on waste minimization, adopting eco-friendly practices that go beyond conventional regulations.

However, our environmental policy extends beyond operational actions; it encompasses a commitment to education and awareness. We believe in the importance of spreading the message of sustainability among our guests and employees. This approach reflects our conviction that true sustainability is intertwined with awareness and collective action.

Commitments and actions

MedPlaya's journey towards sustainable tourism

Energy sustainability

At MedPlaya, we are determined to lead the way towards energy sustainability. That's why we have made a significant investment in installing solar panels in several of our hotels. This investment not only demonstrates our steadfast dedication to energy efficiency, but also our commitment to using renewable energy sources. We are determined to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable world.

Plastic and waste reduction

Reducing plastics and waste is a priority for us. We strive to minimize the use of single-use plastics and promote environmentally-friendly practices in our hotels. This commitment goes beyond environmental concern; it reflects our strong purpose to keep the destinations where we operate clean and healthy.

Environmental initiatives

At MedPlaya, we don't settle for the conventional. We strive to be pioneers and innovators in the field of sustainability. Projects like "Agua KM0" to reduce plastic usage and "Winnow" to reduce and monitor food waste using artificial intelligence reflect our commitment to pushing boundaries and contributing positively to the community and the environment. These initiatives mirror our long-term vision and profound social responsibility.

Together for a greener planet

As a hotel group, we actively promote environmental awareness among our customers and take concrete steps to care for the planet. We encourage our guests to reduce their ecological footprint by promoting sustainable practices such as reducing plastic consumption, using public transportation, and offering bike rental services. We are committed to contributing to a more sustainable world and inspiring our customers to join this cause.

Social development and conservation of culture and nature

Social development and conservation of culture and nature

In MedPlaya hotels, social actions are carried out in various areas and for various purposes.

On a local level, our actions are primarily focused on treating illnesses, caring for flora and fauna, promoting local festivals, local culture, assisting less protected individuals, or collaborating with educational centres.

On a national or international level, our efforts are directed towards aiding disasters, poverty, or childhood issues, partnering with exemplary organizations such as Caritas and the Red Cross. Additionally, we also contribute to projects aimed at the training and employment of people with disabilities or at risk of social exclusion.

At MedPlaya Hotels, we maintain an active commitment to the most disadvantaged social groups and work alongside NGOs, foundations, and institutions in the development of numerous social action programmes.

Our mission is to promote sustainability and contribute to improving the social conditions in our areas of operation.
