Costa Navarino, that is based in southwest Peloponnese and in particular in the perfecture of Messinia, was distinguished for its continuous commitment to sustainable tourism development and won a Silver Award at this year’s WTM World Responsible Tourism Awards.
Costa Navarino, a TEMES SA owned luxury hotel, won the award in the ‘Reducing Plastic Waste in the Environment’ category. The WTM Responsible Tourism Awards are granted to businesses and destinations that make responsible tourism their focus and inspire others.
Greece’s prime sustainable destination, Costa Navarino, has partnered with WWF Greece, with the aim to limit single-use plastics across its resorts and operations. Through joining forces, a full inventory report is carried out annually, measuring the amount of plastics used across the destination’s distinct resort sites, with the objective to reduce these as much as possible.
Aachieveing carbon neutrality for the GHG emissions resulting from the activities of the facilities by 2030 is yet a Costa Navarino's key target, through direct emissions reduction and on-site energy production from renewables.
Earlier in 2022, Costa Navarino also won Best Sustainable Destination in the Marie Claire Sustainability Awards, adding to its list of environmental accolades.
