Since 2019, our purchasing policy is defined by two binding Sustainable Procurement Statements in line with European and International Directives and Regulations. The first defines the specifications of the products that the hotel uses in the context of its operation; the second guides procurement in constructions, building renovations and equipment. Challenges such as the pandemic, and the energy and climate crisis, negatively affect the supply chain; however, we continue to strive for optimal results where possible.
