BUSINESS: 338 PRACTICES
The CSR policy of Cactus Hotels derives from its business mission which is mainly related to the minimization of its environmental impacts and the maximization of safety and quality of services. Our main expectation is the continuous improvement.
Cactus Hotels sustainability program is based on a set of criteria set by the certification and quality assurance standards that the hotel holds.
The main concern, in a highly competitive environment of the tourism industry, is the continuous upgrading of the services provided to our customers. In every action in this direction we ensure that it is done with absolute respect and minimal impact on the environment and the local community.
The four main areas on which the strategy is designed are:
The working environment
Local society and
The natural environment
A key pillar for supporting sustainable development is shaping corporate responsibility. Corporate social responsibility creates a competitive advantage to enhance the company's reputation and performance.
The initiative is in progress and refers to the general philosophy of the company, so the offer to society as a whole has no time limit.
Theofilos Chalkiadakis SA - Cactus Hotels recognizes that a business should not be judged only on the basis of the quality of its services, its financial results but also on its contribution to society as a whole.
Our commitment to this direction creates the social profile of the company and the shaping of corporate social responsibility
The social responsibility is structured through a set of activities and actions:
• Series of events to promote the local element.
• Using local products and choosing local suppliers.
• Encouraging customers to buy products and services from local suppliers.
• Provide information brochures from local businesses to inform visitors about shopping, dining, entertainment, car rentals, etc.
• Provision of local transport information.
• Encourage staff to participate in hotel activities related to environmental issues or other voluntary actions.
