Mangalis actively implements its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy in all of its activities.
Our teams work hard to respect our Fair Trade policies and build or renovate our properties in accordance with Green Hotels guidelines. We are also strongly committed to supporting entrepreneurship and fostering and facilitating the development of local talent.
At the same time, we constantly implement and develop ambitious international standards to decrease energy consumption and CO2 emissions, remove architectural barriers, reduce noise pollution and promote conscientious waste management and recycling.
Mangalis also stands by the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) initiative.
We support the personal and professional growth of our employees, celebrating diversity and human dignity.
We favour hiring local people, to ensure local residents benefit from the opening of one of our hotels, actively participating and contributing to local economic development, as well as the professional education and general well-being of the population.
We contribute to the development of local crafts and industries by supporting entrepreneurial ventures in the local community.
We play an active role in the positive economic development and well-being of the local populations, reducing our carbon footprint, by purchasing from local companies as much as possible.
We support Fair Trade, promoting conscientious buying practices and choosing suppliers the respect the environment and human rights.
A hotel needs to buy thousands of items and, whenever possible, any item that we reference or purchase nearly always carries the ‘Fair Trade’ label.
UNIQUE ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS
We promote the sustainable development of our hotels with the objective of reducing CO2 emissions, energy consumption, water consumption and waste production, so we can stay as competitive as possible.
Mangalis is also developing environmental-training programmes to increase employee awareness, so they can improve their daily habits, both in the workplace and at home.
