Parco San Marco
Hotels & Beach Resort

Parco San Marco's commitment to sustainability extends to its daily operations: the entire resort team lives and breathes sustainability, incorporating it into every action and daily decision.


By promoting eco-conscious practices in every aspect of operation, the resort not only provides a luxurious retreat for its guests but also sets a commendable standard for responsible and environmentally respectful tourism.


Protecting the environment is a task to which every employee must contribute according to their responsibilities, knowledge, and abilities. Furthermore, we aim to motivate our guests and suppliers to act responsibly towards the environment.


At Parco San Marco, we are firmly committed to operating responsibly towards the natural environment that surrounds us. We recognize our responsibility in protecting and preserving the beauty and biodiversity of our ecosystem, and we actively strive to minimize our impact on the environment. Our environmental policy is based on the following fundamental principles:

Environmental Conservation and Protection

We are committed to protecting the flora, fauna, and delicate ecosystems found near our resort. Through conservation and environmental protection measures, we strive to maintain a harmonious balance between our activity and the surrounding environment.

We believe that education and awareness are essential for promoting responsible behaviour towards the environment. Therefore, we are committed to actively informing and involving our staff, guests, and the local community about the importance of environmental sustainability and the actions they can take to contribute to the safeguarding of our planet.

Eco-friendly Gastronomic Delights

Our guests can enjoy the flavors of sustainability in our restaurants, where we combine farm-to-table practices, local sourcing, and eco-conscious gastronomic approaches:

  • Supporting local producers through meticulous ingredient sourcing, promoting meaningful relationships, and contributing to the well-being of the community.
  • Embracing the farm-to-table movement with our gardens for zero-mile freshness.
Innovations for Conscious Stays

We have bid farewell to harmful materials and embraced eco-friendly alternatives and structures for a guilt-free stay:

  • Electric vehicle charging stations for modern and environmentally friendly travel options.
  • Takeaway containers made of biodegradable materials or cardboard, paper bags, 100% sustainable glass or aluminum bottles, and paper straws.
  • Preference for recycled paper and digital menus (where possible) to reduce paper waste.
Other Green Team Initiatives
  • Monitoring paper usage to reduce it.
  • No use of plastic in all outlets.
  • Reviewing the current configuration of recyclable trash bins in the hotel.
  • Free personal bicycle for each employee for commuting during working hours and leisure time.
  • Acquisition of land where we grow our chemical-free wheat. With the wheat, we produce our pasta served daily to our guests.
  • Use of 100% natural Lapitec material and solar panels to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • The BeeHome and insect hotel: in collaboration with "Wildbiene + Partner IG" under the patronage of WWF, we host a bee house and a real insect hotel to preserve biodiversity and the ecosystem.
  • Integration of low-energy consumption technologies, such as solar panels and LED lighting, to reduce carbon footprint.

By choosing Green Globe standards, we have chosen to participate in a globally recognized certification program. Green Globe is awarded to companies in the tourism and events sectors that adopt a business approach aimed at responsible and efficient use of resources.
