COMMITMENT TO THE

SUSTAINABILITY

Our responsibility with Sustainability

At Anaga Resort, we understand that our commitment to natural beauty and the environment is fundamental. Sustainability is more than a philosophy for us; it's a lifestyle. We are committed to protecting the natural beauty of Punta del Hidalgo and the Anaga Rural Park, while offering our guests a unique and environmentally friendly experience. 

Join us on a journey towards sustainability, where every small gesture counts and where nature is the true protagonist of our corner of Tenerife.

Km0 Products

Sustainable practices and support for our local community are part of Anaga Resort's operations. At the hotel we choose Km0 products, which are produced and supplied in our nearby community. 

This initiative supports local producers, reduces the carbon footprint and guarantees freshness and quality in our food. Our choice of Km0 products is a contribution to a more sustainable future and an authentic experience for our guests.

 

 

 

  • SDG 1. End of poverty: By strengthening the local economy and generating income for local producers, the hotel can help reduce poverty in the nearby community. This is especially relevant if the local producers are small farmers or artisans who can significantly benefit from the collaboration with the hotel.
  • SDG 2. Zero hunger: Choosing local products can encourage the production and availability of fresh, nutritious foods in the community. This contributes to the goal of “Zero Hunger” by ensuring that both hotel guests and the local community have access to quality, healthy food.
  • SDG 8. Decent work and economic growth: By opting for local products, the hotel supports local producers and suppliers, which can generate employment and economic opportunities in the nearby community. This contributes to promoting decent work and economic growth in the region.

  • TOIn addition to these specific SDGs, collaboration with local suppliers and choosing zero kilometer products can also have positive effects on other SDGs related to environmental sustainability and reducing the carbon footprint, such as SDG 12: “Responsible production and consumption” and SDG 13: “Climate action”.

Plastic reduction

At Anaga Resort, we are committed to reduction of plastic in our facilities. We recognize the significant impact that plastic waste has on our oceans and the wider environment. Therefore, we have taken concrete steps to minimize our plastic footprint and foster a cleaner, healthier environment.

We have reduced the use of single-use plastics in our facilities, including water bottles, straws, coffee stirrers and non-essential plastic packaging. We opt for more sustainable alternatives, such as  use of filtered tap water through our collaborator CULLIGAN in our restaurant and, soon, also in the rooms.

 We also actively promote recycling at our facilities. We place recycling containers convenient throughout the hotel and we encourage our guests and employees to properly separate recyclable waste.

Using filtered tap water instead of bottled water or water that requires additional purification processes has several health-related benefits. SDG 6. Clean water and sanitation:

    • Efficient use of water: Mains water filtration helps ensure that the available water supply is used more efficiently, reducing the need to exploit additional water sources or deplete local water resources.
    • Reduction of plastic waste: By not depending on bottled water, the hotel contributes to reducing the generation of plastic waste, which has a positive impact on water quality and pollution mitigation.
    • Promotion of water quality: Using filtration systems can improve water quality and ensure it is safe for consumption, which is essential for both guests and the local community.
    • Sustainable management of water resources: By taking steps to use water more sustainably, the hotel contributes to the responsible management of local water resources, which is essential for long-term sustainability.

Furniture restoration

 

At our hotel, instead of throwing away furniture in good condition, we choose to give them a second Life.  This way, we restore each piece, preserving the beauty of the wood and reducing waste.

Each restored piece of furniture tells its own story, and we are delighted to share that legacy with our guests. Every time you relax in one of our rooms, you will be enjoying a piece of furniture that has been carefully restored, uniting tradition with sustainability.

The reuse and restoration of furniture contributes in several ways to the SDG 12. Responsible production and consumption:

  • Waste reduction: By reusing furniture instead of throwing it away and buying new, you avoid creating solid waste, which helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
  • Efficient use of resources: Furniture restoration involves giving new life to objects that might otherwise have been discarded, saving natural resources such as wood, metals, and other materials used in making new furniture.
  • Responsible consumption: By taking steps to extend the life of existing furniture, the hotel is promoting a more responsible approach to the consumption and acquisition of goods, while reducing its environmental footprint.
  • Less carbon emissions: Manufacturing and transporting new furniture often generates greenhouse gas emissions. By reusing and refurbishing furniture, the need to produce and transport new furniture is reduced, contributing to climate change mitigation.

 

Local suppliers

At Anaga Resort, we embrace the beauty of our location in Punta del Hidalgo, Tenerife. We firmly believe that supporting our local community is essential to preserve authenticity and cultural richness of this region.

Our commitment to local suppliers is a fundamental part of our sustainability vision. We work in close collaboration with farmers, producers, artisans and local companies to offer our guests unique experiences and high quality products. Every bite you enjoy at our Platanera restaurant or every product you find in our rooms tells a story of tradition and commitment to the local.

Below is how these practices contribute to these SDGs:

SDG 1. End of poverty: Collaborating with local suppliers can help generate additional income in local communities, which, in turn, can contribute to reducing poverty in the region. By strengthening the local economy, economic opportunities can be created for people and communities that were previously vulnerable.

SDG 2. Zero hunger: By collaborating with local farmers, the hotel can promote the production and supply of fresh and healthy food. This supports the goal of “Zero Hunger” by contributing to the availability of nutritious and affordable food for both hotel guests and the local community.

SDG 8. Decent work and economic growth: Collaborating with local suppliers can create employment opportunities and generate income for the local community. This contributes to the promotion of decent work and economic growth in the region, as it strengthens the local economy and can help reduce poverty.

SDG 12. Responsible production and consumption: By collaborating with local suppliers to source fresh, quality products, the hotel promotes a more responsible approach to the procurement of goods and food. This encourages sustainable production and consumption by reducing the environmental footprint associated with transporting products over long distances and by supporting local producers who often have more sustainable practices.
