CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility. If we check Wikipedia’s definition, it is “a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into a business model. CSR policy functions as a self-regulatory mechanism whereby a business monitors and ensures its active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards and national or international norms”.
To us, this acronym involves much more tan a kind of responsibility for the Company; it involves a way of understanding business, strong values; a commitment to society that allows us to develop business without neglecting tax obligations and legislation.
“Marketing”, many would say. We say it is a matter of morality and common sense. After 20 years of providing guests with different bind for waste separation, and after being one of the first Hotels to install solar panels to heat water, we can also say it is a matter of economy. Reduce, recycle and reuse.
Solidarity. Solidarity with people and society, with animals, plants and culture. Houm Hotels collaborates with altruistic association Es Refugi and “Operación Kilo” donating food. We also donate blankets to animal shelters so that abandoned animals have a warmer winter. We sponsor sports events that focus on social causes. We prune and care for our low water-consumption plants so that guests have a singular, unique place in Playa de Palma. We are responsible.
Commitment. Every two years we renew our Travelife award, a certificate created by Tour Operators and other competent bodies in environmental management systems. With this we make sure all activities of previous years are registered, and we create social, environmental, spending, and social goals for the next year.
We also renew our environmental report to remain signing members of UN Global Compact.
