Bensaude Hotels Collection — promoting sustainability

Bensaude Hotels Collection is committed to promoting social, economic and environmental sustainability. That is why the company takes action to minimize the impact of its activity on the environment, while developing the regional economy.

Among these measures, the company gives preference to regional and local products, promotes sustainable fishing, uses renewable energy, sponsors local traditions such as the "Maios” and "O Espírito Santo”, and celebrates the World Environment Day.

Certified for more than 10 years

In line with the company’s strategy and philosophy, the Bensaude Hotels Collection implements good environmental practices. Among other actions, the company performs waste separation, monitor emission levels and carries out daily measurements to assess water and energy consumption.
