ITT Conference 2023

Sustainability at Porto Carras

The Porto Carras Resort keeps guests informed by communicating its green choices, with its everyday actions and some useful suggestions to safeguard the environment; reminding us how small gestures can have a big impact on the entire ecosystem.

Some of the resorts green choices are highlighted below:

  • Minimising waste and promoting sustainable green practices like recycling.
  • Eco Towel card: only if the towels are dropped on the floor will they be replaced, to save water and limit the use of chemicals.
  • Eco bed-linen card: housekeeping staff will await request if guest’s preference is to change bed linen every day. 
  • Ecological Cleaning products: the resort is engaged to increase the use of bio- cleaning products.
  • Use of energy-saving lamps: reducing electric energy consumption.
  • Flow-reducers in the sinks and bathrooms to save water.
  • Bath amenities without preservatives or artificial ingredients.
  • Anti-Plastics: using bio-straws, bio spoons, and other utilities helps minimizing the amount of plastic in the resort by using other materials such as paper, wood, polycarbonate items, and so on.
  • Botanical garden in the resort: mint, oregano, sage, basil, lavender are grown on-site and used to season our food and drink. Additionally, the resort’s olive trees provide the delicious virgin olive oil used throughout our restaurants.
  • Food preparation: integrating local products and using fresh, seasonal produce as well as other ingredients are emerging as a significant focus for the resort’s food and beverage programs.
  • More menu selections that integrate organic produce, hormone-free meats, and dairy.
