Making a positive impact
Our sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives are focused on the following key areas:
- community engagement
- environment & biodiversity
- health & safety
All three outlined pillars have a strong link between them and we therefore think of them as a Venn diagram when planning our initiatives.
Providing a holiday destination of the highest health and safety standards is a crucial starting point and a leeway to making our team members, guests and the locals feel part of the Malama family. This sense of trust, friendliness and togetherness is key for all stakeholders to develop a sense of community, grow fond of the local environment and wildlife, and thus preserve it as if it is their second home.
environment & biodiversity
Plastic Free Event was hosted at our hotel in early June 2022 and was attended by local municipalities, hoteliers and ministry of Tourism, TUI foundation, Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative, Travel Foundation.
Since 2021 the following single-use plastic items have been removed and replaced by eco-friendly alternatives:
paper cups & reusable acrylic glasses
bamboo & paper straws
paper take-away boxes/bags for snacks
wooden take-away cutlery
refillable bathroom toiletries
fresh ingredients for cocktail garnishes
Cyprus is renowned for its sun-drenched coasts and sapphire waters of the eastern Mediterranean. The island is the proud recipient of 69 Blue Flags (2021), a highly regarded eco-label awarded to beaches across the globe that meet its high standards. Cyprus’ beaches have the best water quality in the EU, according to the European Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA).
Promotion of Circular Economy in Hotels and Tourist Accommodations
The resort participates in the Measure “Promotion of Circular Economy in Hotels and Tourist Accommodations“, which aims to guide and facilitate the transition of the Cypriot hotels and tourist accommodations to a green and circular economy.
The measure is funded by the EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility, within the framework of Cyprus Recovery and Resilience Plan for the period 2021-2026.
