We are subscribers to the Sustainability Charter of the Azores, an initiative of the Regional Secretariat for Energy, Environment and Tourism, which aims to support the adoption of Sustainable Development principles in an inclusive and comprehensive manner in the various sectors of our society. As such, we have made a public commitment to responsible and transparent management, guided by the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Our Sustainable Development Goals (Moinho Mó da Praia):
1. Collect and use rainwater for irrigation, washing and disposal in the toilet, measuring wherever possible. (SDG6)
2. Provide an environment guide to our guests to motivate them to have good environmental practices, including: meeting goal 1 and saving water (reporting on Graciosa water scarcity over time); separate and recycle using the containers we provide; replace the use of plastic bags with cloth bags that we offer. (SDG6, SDG12)
3. Meet the requirements to achieve Level 5 Miosotis Azores Award in the next certification renewal. Already implemented the tank for capture rainwater and the use of rechargeable batteries; in preparation the guide to teach and motivate the realization of domestic composting. (SDG6, SDG11, SDG12)
