How Gozo holiday villas, Malta makes a difference
Energy: We reduce our energy and find local renewable energy sources for our energy with solar panels. This way instead of wasting energy, we can use the natural energy from the sun, and save the environment and pollution, and also reduce costs within our company. This is a new initiative and we will be using them this year.
Water: We show we understand why water is too precious to waste and, when it rains, we savour every drop into our private water reservoirs . All excess water is collected from the roofs of our accommodation which end up in reservoirs used for watering plants and cleaning around the pool areas.
Our goal must be to meet the economic needs of the present without compromising the ability of the planet to provide for the needs of future generations.
Reducing the threat of global warming requires, above all, that carbon emissions be reduced. The burning of fossil fuels, which still provide more than 75 per cent of energy worldwide, produces most of these emissions. The rapidly expanding number of automobiles around the globe threatens an even greater escalation in emissions. The need to promote energy-efficiency and greater reliance on renewable resources is obvious.
With regards to rubbish, we provide proper bins where clients can separate their rubbish ready for collection. With regards to construction, we build our properties up to a modern standard; however we feel the need to add old artefacts within our properties, to create a unique look, thus also preserving our history and the way houses were built in the olden days. All material used is bought and produced locally, however we do try to preserve what we can from old renovated properties.
We support the local community by offering very low prices at Ta Frenc Restaurant which is part of our group as well. By this way we help the fundraising of different associations. In addition we do support charities such as by giving mainly prices for weekend break in our accommodations.
