Everything to be Happy
Responsible Tourism Policy
Aware of the importance of maintaining the development of sustainable tourism, and accepting the principles and objectives specifically adopted at the World Sustainable Development Summit 2015, COP 21 and the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism + 20, Arenas de Barcelona undertakes to engage in the sustainable management of its activities by adopting commitments aimed at preventing, eliminating or reducing the impact of our facilities and activities, both internal and external, and by optimising the sustainability of the establishment, thus improving its behaviour towards our surroundings.
In this same sense, our institution has adopted the following Responsible Tourism Policy, through which it endeavours to fulfil the requirements established for BIOSPHERE certification, including the legal requirements regulating the effects generated by tourism activity, among others.
Likewise, we are committed to motivating and training our staff through different training and awareness-building activities addressing the principles of Responsible Tourism, to promoting good environmental practices in our surrounding area and to participating in external activities and reporting internally and externally on the company’s progress and environmental actions.
Along the same lines, our establishment expressly states our commitment to fight against sexual exploitation or any other form of exploitation and commercial harassment, particularly of children, adolescents, women and minorities; we undertake to adopt measures of universal accessibility.
One of our main objectives is to perfect sustainable management, assuming commitments to continuous improvement in all areas of sustainability: social, economic and environmental, as well as customer satisfaction. To accomplish this, future projects to expand our facilities or activities will be subject to criteria of sustainability and the efficient use of resources.
This Responsible Tourism Policy will be updated as circumstances so require, adopting and publishing new sustainability objectives in both cases.
