RESPONSIBLE TOURISM POLICY
Aware of the importance of maintaining sustainable tourism development, and assuming the principles specifically adopted in the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism, Casa do Cabeço undertakes to carry out a sustainable management of its activities, through the adoption of commitments aimed at preventing, eliminating or reducing the impact of our facilities and activities, both internal and external, as well as optimising the establishment’s sustainability by improving its behaviour towards the environment.
For this purpose, Casa do Cabeço has adopted the following responsible tourism policy, through which it undertakes to comply with the requirements established in the Biosphere Hotel reference, which includes, among other things, the legal requirements that regulate the effects generated by the tourist activity.
Thus, we are committed to motivate and develop ourselves with training and awareness actions on the principles of Responsible Tourism, to promote good environmental practices and participate in external activities, and to informe both internally and externally about environmental advances and actions from the company.
We are also committed to fight sexual exploitation, or any other form of commercial exploitation and harassment, particularly against children, adolescents, women and minorities. We also include a commitment to adopt accessibility measures for people with disabilities (sensory, physical, intellectual and psychological).
One of our main objectives is to improve sustainable management, assuming the commitments of continuous improvement in all areas of sustainability: social, economic and environmental, as well as customer satisfaction. For this, future projects to expand facilities or activities will be subject to criteria of sustainability and efficiency in the use of resources.
This Responsible Tourism Policy will be updated whenever circumstances require, adopting and publishing new sustainability objectives in both cases.
