At Hotel Carlos V it not only matters what we create, but also how we create it and what we refuse to destroy, that is why we join the sustainability and development objectives set for the 2030 Agenda.
These are our small gestures for a more sustainable planet:
We collaborate with Action Against Hunger through its "Solidarity Restaurants" program. We also promote among our customers a "0" waste policy encouraging them to serve only what they are really going to consume and offering the possibility of takeaway food for the uneaten.
We promote among our team a healthy lifestyle by increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables in our employee dining room. We make available to all employees an annual medical check-up for the correct health surveillance. Every year we carry out a work environment survey to know what the needs of our entire team are.
We have an equality plan through which we establish guarantee measures for equal treatment and opportunities between women and men in the workplace and in which we recognize the right to the reconciliation of personal, family and work life. The 90th of our management team is made up of women.
With our activity we promote the creation of local employment and population fixation.
More than 90% of the people who work at the hotel have a fixed stable contract.
We work with local associations and NGOs that focus on the labor insertion of people with difficulties in accessing the labor market, either because of their different abilities or because they belong to socially disadvantaged classes. We help in their training and offer paid employment to those who pass their internship with us.
Our hotel is located in a historic and emblematic building of the city thus contributing to the Protection of Heritage. The constant improvements carried out during all these years are focused on improving both the comfort of our customers, as well as the quality of materials and the energy efficiency of our company.
One of our criteria in the selection of suppliers is proximity, being the purchase of Km 0 products, along with quality, one of the fundamental pillars in our purchasing process. We also select seasonal products for the realization of our menu and menus.
We plant trees in your name; Every day you give up the cleaning of your room (except the day of departure) we will plant a tree in your name, thus contributing to the improvement of the forest mass and the reduction of CO2 in the environment. We are committed to eliminating single-use plastics both in the rooms and in all the materials used in the hotel gradually.
We establish relationships of trust with all our suppliers to achieve the objectives of development and sustainability. We collaborate with different programs such as "Hoteles Amigo Unicef" in order to promote responsible, sustainable and committed tourism.
