Green and responsible is better. ArchiMete is official supporter of WTM World Responsible Tourism Day

22 Settembre 2012 | By

Many small individual actions to reach a great goal: protect the environment and have a better world to live. And…, of course, where to spend unique holidays!
It is the spirit of our company, that operates in the hearth of north-west Sardinia, in the Regional Natural park of Porto Conte and in the Marine protected area of Capo Caccia-isola Piana.
For us the “green philosophy” it’s a must. And we believe in it strongly.
That’s why in this first year we chose to participate at the World Travel Market in London (5-8 november), and we joined the WTM World Responsible Tourism Day 2012, planned on 7th november.

 

WTM WRTD has four realistic objectives for this day of action and with support from the UNWTO wants the industry to work together to:
• help drive change by educating more responsible behaviour with the travel and tourism industry and travelling public;
• explore the issues of how countries and destinations are made more sustainable including case studies of best practices;
• educate the marketplace and debate key environmental related issues to push the agenda and be a catalyst for change;
• harness the influence of World Travel Market as an international business forum to encourage the industry to drive the responsible tourism agenda forward.

At the end of the touristic season 2012, we decided to restructure our headquarter and include new green services, such as a tourist minibus (fewer cars on the road is better!) and energy and water savers for the building (fully agree with the campaign “Just a Drop“, supported by WTM). The same eco-friendly philosophy was applied to the equipment belonging to both the tourist centre and diving center: for example all rubber boats are equipped with the latest generation in engines, which protect the environmental resources of the marine area and the land park.
Our aim is to promote a system-tourism based on love for culture, nature, active tourism, for activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, horse riding and many other opportunities that allow people to enjoy a period of relaxation innovative, original and sustainable in an enchanting setting of the north west Sardinian coast.
Considering this green philosophy, World Travel Market team granted to ArchiMete the use, as official supporter, of the WTM World Responsible Tourism Day 2012 logo.
We are proud of this acknowledgment and is an incentive to pursue the path of environmental protection, for a truly responsible tourism.
Because what we do today will have a strong influence on the kind of international travel and tourism industry we have in the future. We are in this together, and everyone must play their part.
So, if you come in London at WTM 2012, we’ll be happy to meet you and collaborate with in the organization of responsible holidays in Sardinia!
