“We do not inherit the land from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”
SUSTAINABILITY IS AT THE HEART OF OUR MISSION
For some time now, the Splendide has begun to undertake tangible commitments in order to be able to offer its contribution to environmental issues, and it is working on various projects to review the hotel’s present and the future, step by step. The decision to invest time and resources into its own Sustainability Programme stems from the awareness that the Hotel can also play a part in the green cause, by making its own local contribution and pursuing the goal of creating a Splendide that is increasingly tinged with green.
Each individual action within this multi-year plan has the ultimate goal of reducing the Splendide’s ecological footprint to reshape its offer to guests, with a view to eco-sustainability that can serve as encouragement for other organisations driven by the same goal.
The commitment that the Splendide is making for future generations has thus been transformed into a full-time job, a mission has taken on at least the same priority as that of hospitality.
Making sustainable and innovative choices, becoming promoters of a new way of traveling and experiencing the local area: the hotel’s mission is composed of many everyday challenges that it faces on a daily basis.
The project is organic and actively involves the Splendide’s “body, mind and soul” :
– the building is evolving, and its equipment is becoming increasingly cutting-edge with a view to drastically reducing emissions. There are new equipment, new systems, new technologies and even new spaces for an important expansion project with an even greener outlook. In fact, a future-oriented version of the Splendide is under construction which will keep the historic charm of the Hotel intact today while moving towards highly reduced emissions in the next few years.
– the Splendide team, in turn, is already an integral part of the mission, being oriented towards a more ethical direction that empowers individuals and leads them to participate in the project with daily actions in keeping with its green philosophy, also thanks to an on-going training plan. The supply chain and the local context obviously also play an important role.
– the guests, the true soul of the Splendide, are also part of this mission. By promoting a new way of staying in and experiencing the area, the Hotel will accompany visitors as they move towards more conscious behaviours, transforming their stays into refined but low-impact experiences. At the Splendide, there are packages and promotions aimed at reviewing waste habits, guiding guests towards greater sensitivity in relation to their own environmental footprint and offering the possibility of a “carbon neutral” stay.
The Splendide has drawn up a programmatic manifesto, which lists the commitments it has made today and for the coming few years. Transparency is an integral part of this project, because it guarantees a constant exchange with the community and with guests, building a direct line between the objectives and results, working towards an ever greener Splendide.
What we do: commitment
To reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible, we have identified five areas of action on which we are working and will continue to work by setting ourselves progressive and constant objectives.
