We are proud to announce that the Aqua Pedra dos Bicos has won the Green Key 2017 award, at a ceremony held on 2 June in Funchal, Madeira. The Aqua Pedra dos Bicos has thus become the sixth hotel in the Algarve to win this prize and the only one this year to receive its first “Green Key” certification.
The “Green Key” programme, created by the European Blue Flag Association, is an award that rewards sustainable tourism practices. This is done by recognising tourist complexes, local accommodation, campsites and restaurants that implement good environmental and social practices, diminishing their negative impact on the places and communities in which they operate.
In a press release, the Details group explained that it had received the award in recognition of its pro-environmental practices. The group’s efficient management model values the use of practices aimed at reducing its environmental footprint and ensuring the sustainable – and increasingly ecological – growth of the tourism sector in Portugal and, more especially, in the Algarve.
