Acknowledgement for our environmental work

EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) and ISO 14001certification is proof of how Hotel Jardín Tecina has set out, documented and implemented, with continuous upkeep and improvement, its Environmental Management System in compliance with the ISO 14001:2004 standard.

Our actions are guided by our Environmental Statement, which sets out the environmental management of resources and our commitment to achieve harmony between our activity and the environment.

We have reduced our carbon footprint considerably since 2014.

This tool allows us to calculate the environmental impact of our activity, measuring energy use and determining our CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. We are currently in the process of registering the hotel’s carbon footprint with the Spanish Climate Change Office.
