The Tais Hotels & Villas is firmly committed to implement strategies promoting sustainable tourism practices and to uphold performance values aimed at protecting the wellbeing of our employees and the environment, while collaborating with community development projects. Sustainability is a key part of our philosophy; for this reason, we feel a great responsibility to help construct a better world.
The Corporate Sustainability committees of the Grupo CIO—the company to which The Tais Hotels & Villas belongs—are responsible for setting targets and performing a follow-up of the activities carried out around our three key pillars of action: our team, environment and community.
We encourage you to read about all of our activities in the Group’s annual Corporate Sustainability Report.
The wellbeing of The Tais Hotels & Villas´family is a key factor in the development of our staff. We strive to foster a high-quality working environment, conscious of the huge importance of the workteam for the success of our business. We are committed to internal promotion, ensuring the equality of opportunities, to continous training and to a two way communication between us who make up the soul of The Tais Hotels & Villas. We also endeavour to motivate our team through the implementation of strategies that allow them to refine their talents and boost their sense of company belonging.
The Tais Hotels & Villas is deeply committed to protecting the environment. Some of our key goals are to minimise our carbon footprint, reduce our consumption, emissions and the waste we produce, which we shall ensure through the rational use of natural resources.
We have a Sustainability Technician whose role is to establish our conduct guidelines and devise our environmental strategies. Among his objectives is the implementation of an environmental management system for all the establishments that make up The Tais Hotels & Villas, the promotion of the circular economy, efficiency and the fight against climate change, and the continuous training of our team in environmental matters.
Social action plays a key role in our corporate culture. The Tais Hotels promotes social development through our ties with the local and international community. We establish partnerships with third sector organisations and work with them on an active basis; we encourage our teams to engage in corporate volunteering programmes; and we promote local cultures, talent and traditions as a symbol of the identity of the destination.
