Sustainability Policy

DCI’s sustainable development strategy is explicitly organized through several commitments and key priorities such as:

  • Minimal carbon footprint. Energy efficiency, use of renewable energies, introduction of innovative technologies and adoption of best practices towards zero carbon emissions on all our projects
  • Sustainable resource management by introducing best practices and state of the art technologies at all stages of development in order to minimize energy and water use, emissions and waste production
  • Responsible golf course design and management by promoting reuse and recycling, integrated pest management, use of organic fertilizers, planting indigenous species, encouraging wildlife
  • Green certification for hotel, resorts and golf courses through global and/ or regional certification schemes for tourism products and environmental management systems (wherever possible)
  • Sustainable consumption and responsible purchasing by introducing cultural and environmental aspects into relevant policies and practices
  • Green architecture by integrating local/traditional architectural influences, introducing low build up areas and bioclimatic principles (i.e. green roofs)
  • Biodiversity conservation by implementing campaigns and projects, as well as by forging new forms of collaboration with civil society, local stakeholders, NGOs and policy makers
  • Monitoring and reporting continuously at the destination, corporate and project level on DCI’s impacts for driving innovation, information sharing, transparency and constant improvement
  • Education and research through establishing partnerships with leading academic institutions and sustainable development networks as well as by awareness raising campaigns for employees, visitors and local population
  • Social commitment and responsibility by sponsoring education, knowledge, culture and sports as local communities are vital partners in DCI’s value proposition
