Delphina uses Ecolabel products for ordinary cleaning, and the courtesy line of SPA products is eco-bio certified and paraben free. The hotels and resorts provide electric vehicles for guests, which are recharged on site.
Vegetable-based inks are used for printing catalogues, with paper and covers all made with certified ecological cellulose to ensure entire recyclability.
To create an authentic and sustainable stay for guests, Sardinian arts, crafts, entertainment, manufacturers and services are all sourced locally. Food and wine are also preferably sourced locally through the Genuine Local Food Oriented® project, a Delphina quality brand focusing on a healthy, high-quality cuisine based on genuine ingredients that respect seasonality, ideally at 0 km.
One of Delphina’s hotels in Badesi, Resort & SPA Le Dune, houses a five-hectare vegetable garden with a range of aromatic herbs and fruits trees for guests to enjoy, while serving an educational role for children. This also acts as a source of supply for zero km ingredients across all resorts.
Delphina is also a Corporate Golden Donor in support of the FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano in the protection of the Italian cultural and naturalistic heritage.
‘Sardinia’s unique nature is our primary resource and has always been at the centre of our projects. Winning for four consecutive years the title of Europe’s Leading Green Resort and being awarded as Europe’s Leading Green Independent Hotel Group 2022 is proof that we are on the right track. It is a sign of how it is possible to do business whilst respecting and enhancing the environment.
‘From the very beginning, we have ensured that every single building fits harmoniously into the surrounding landscape, is close to nature and respects the traditions of this land. We would like to thank all those who have rewarded our actions and our green philosophy, which from the very beginning has been based on sustainability, love for nature and providing a local and family touch that we continuously try to convey.’
