At Electra Hotels and Resorts we believe that no business exists in vacuum, nor its sole goal is to maximize profits. For a business to flourish it must be well integrated within the community it operates in, serving with its growth the growth of the local community. This is why we are committed to giving back, as well as investing in the places where we live and do business in.
The Electra Hotels and Resorts Corporate Social Responsibility programs contribute regularly as well as on a need basis to NGOs working to help the less fortunate members of our communities: all of our hotels donate food, bed linen and blankets on a regular basis to various organizations and food banks, and also host various NGOs’ press conferences and fundraising events. Also, the staff and management of the Electra Hotels and Resorts hotels participate themselves in fundraisers, including the 2014 Make-A-Wish charity night marathon in Thessaloniki.
The environment is also very important to us: we are constantly working on reducing our carbon footprint and have been awarded year-on-year green key certifications in the process, for both the Electra Palace Rhodes and the Electra Palace Athens. We are also participating in the municipality of Thessaloniki’s advanced recycling program, recycling cooking oils and fat, as well as paper, batteries and other recyclables. In addition, we work hard in keeping the beautiful Trianta beach in front of our Rhodes property pristine and sparkling – so that it will keep being awarded blue flag certifications.
