There is a documented policy with specific objectives for Environmental Conservation and a commitment to reducing energy consumption and associated costs. Mas des Romarins and its employees are committed to the efficiency of their activity and to the preservation of the environment, assuming the well-being and conservation of our environment and community. Our community policy and main actions are as follows
1. Procurement, Energy Management and Saving Initiatives
We ensure energy control of all hotel operations by investing in class A efficiency equipment and we raise awareness of energy saving among our staff by developing the following initiatives and actions: Low energy lighting in all hotel facilities, guest information system to turn off air conditioning/heating in rooms when not present, replacement and maintenance of air conditioning systems, timers to control outdoor lighting, TV with low energy screen, heating/cooling of pool water by means of a heat pump, automated system of laundry and pool products.
2. Water management
The Mas des Romarins incorporates water-saving devices in its hotel that reduce water consumption, both in the taps and in the toilet cisterns. The gardens are equipped with a drip irrigation system.
3. Waste management
Mas des Romarins minimises waste production in all its areas, recycling glass and plastic containers. It also composts the vast majority of its organic waste.
4. Use of chemicals
Mas des Romarins uses biodegradable chemicals and safely disposes of hazardous waste. The use of a steam cleaner for the entire establishment considerably limits the impact of even environmentally friendly chemicals within the establishment.
The daily cleaning service is only carried out at the express request of the client in order to limit the impact of the use of energy and cleaning products.
5. Promotion of responsible tourism
The Mas des Romarins promotes and enhances the economic and social benefits of the community and its businesses to its clientele with the support of Luberon Mont de Vaucluse.
Mas des Romarins favours the purchase of local products over imports or external suppliers, and collaborates with official bodies to promote local traditions.
Mas des Romarins recognises the importance of hiring staff in the local area of its hotels rather than looking outside the community.
