In 2005 Daphne’s Club signed up to the Green Globe 21 environmental benchmarking and certification programme, with a view to becoming part of the global movement for sustainable tourism. Inspired by this scheme we created our Environmental and Social Sustainability Policy.
In February 2008, we submited our first energy and water consumption data to Green Globe 21. Click here to download our benchmarking results.
During 2007 we also became interested in the EU environmental certification scheme “Ecolabel” (the so-called “flower”). In March 2008, we submited our application for the European Ecolabel. In December 2008 we were successfully awareded the European Ecolabel. We renewed our certification in 2011 (available in Greek here). After its expiration we did not submit a new application for certification, as the cost was too high, both in financial terms and in terms of the bureaucratic procedures involved.
In June 2010 Daphne’s Club Hotel Apartments was awarded the international ecolabel “Green Key for the first time”!
The Green Key® is a worldwide available eco-label awarded to leisure organisations, such as hotels, youth hostels, conference- and holiday centres, campsites, holidayhouses and leisure facilities. To obtain The Green Key the company has to fulfil a list of environmental requirements. These requirements are contained in a number of criteria. Besides environmental demands (for example to control the production of waste and the use of water, electricity, etc.), the criteria include demands on policy, action plans, education and communication. Obtaining The Green Key shows the sense of responsibility a organisation has for its surroundings and society.
We continue applying and successfully obtaining the Green Key certification every year!
In 2020 we started to catalogue our “Best Sustainability Practices” with a view to informing our guests or our efforts, but also to inspire other hoteliers to follow our example.
Spurred on by the Green Key certification program, we have continued to update this document annually. Click below to see our latest report (2023-2024).
Since 2022 our hotel participates in the Zero Waste Future network, learning & doing more to avoid creating waste and to better reusing and recycling it. Measures include avoiding all single-use plastics, not creating food waster, composting food waste, recycling recyclable materials, etc
Here are some examples of our environmental commitments and actions:
In this process, you, our guests, will also be invited to participate! Here are some examples of the things you can do while staying at Daphne’s Club:
And here are some things you can do before coming:
On March 28th, 2009, Daphne’s Club participated for the first time in the global environmental event “Earth Hour”, by switching off the hotel’s lights for an hour. It was a most enjoyable hour, which we passed by the fireplace, playing music by candle-light. We are seriously thinking of having a daily “Earth Hour”!!
