Responsibility and sustainability declaration

We put high emphasis on eco-friendliness in our actions because we want to ensure our responsibility of protecting nature and culture. We are convinced that every company’s and individual’s contribution is important.

Running our business in an eco-friendly way and sustaining the cultural environment is a strategic decision.

Environmentally friendly activities reduce the burden on nature and at the same time, is economically clever. Our goal is to implement responsible business considering the economical profitability and competitiveness without omitting the environmental and social effects of our operations.

The working environment at Krapi is safe and we have taken risks and crises under consideration.

We train our staff and communicate our staff and guests as well us our partners to improve sustainable development.

We are committed to the equal treatment and rights of all people and fight against corruption and commercial, sexual, or other exploitation of those in a vulnerable position, as well as all kinds of harassment. We work for social sustainability in our area for the benefit of both our staff and our guests.

Our biggest direct environmental impact comes from the consumption of resources such as energy and water. We actively try to reduce the consumption of the earth’s resources and minimize the generation of waste and improve its sorting. We use 100% renewable electricity, environmentally friendly products, and resource-efficient technology. We measure and monitor our environmental efficiency regularly, also by measuring water, electricity, and energy consumption, as well as the amount of waste generated in our operations.

Our purchases also have a large indirect environmental impact, for example in terms of food and chemicals. That’s why we commit to use as much locally produced, eco-labeled and seasonal products and food as possible, and not to use meat, fish or shellfish products originating from endangered or protected stocks or species. We minimize food waste; we minimize the use of use disposables. The cleaning and washing agents and tissue paper we use are eco-labeled.

Compliance with laws, regulations and other requirements is the minimum level for us, and we are committed to exceeding current laws and regulations related to sustainable development.

We want to be at the forefront of creating a sustainable tourism industry and inspire other actors, customers, and personnel to participate in sustainable development activities.

Providing environmentally friendly services is good service. We also want to encourage our guests to participate in environmental responsibility. Our services must be able to be produced and enjoyed with an ecological conscience.
