At Hapimag Sea Garden Resort Bodrum, we are passionate about environmental policies that value the rights that our current and future generations are obligated to. With this long standing policy in mind, we have produced an effective action plan.
Our first priority is undoubtedly the environment our establishment is located in. Since our establishment is located in a forested area, we are most susceptible to the possibility of a fire. In addition to taking the necessary precautions and creating emergency plans, we have established a fully equipped fire brigade at our facility.
We have also created programs for recycling and water usage, to avoid a wasteful usage of water. A domestic waste water generator is located in our facility. The generator is able to convert the biological waste water of our facility at a capacity of 650 tons/day, this is done by purifying 87,000 tons of waste water per year. The treatment facility holds the Purification Environment Permit Certificate accredited by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization.
Moreover, the three Reverse Osmosis facilities are able to filter at a capacity of 850 tons/day and in this manner we are able to use sea water through the filteration process. By this way, we are positively contributing to the proctection of water sources both underground and on the surface.
There are series of targets that our establishment strictly follows in order to minimize and/or eliminate the environmental impact of our activities. These targets and procedures are throughly analyzed and inspect monthly by our Environmental Engineer consultants.
At our facility we are due diligent in minimizing the damage to the environment by reducing our water, detergent, and energy consumption by changing the towels used in our rooms upon the request of our guests.
An inventory study of plant and tree species in and around the facility was carried out by a team of expert forest engineers. As a result of this detailed study, the 117 species of tree and plant tissues were taken under careful care and protection. Visual information and infographics have been placed in the gardens of our facility to protect the endemic plants as well as the ecosystem.
Additionally, the specialized equipment in our guest rooms prevent unnecessary energy consumption by shutting off the heating and/or cooling system when the windows are opened.
Photocell lamps are used throughout the facility and personnel area, and all of the windows in the rooms as well as the main restaurant are designed to save energy by using heat glass.
Lastly, the mini bars, refrigerators, and TV units are eco-labeled technology which are high efficiency and consume low electricity; and our washer along with dishwashers have been carefully chosen to enable water saving technologies.
Through the use of automatic dosage and chlorination systems in the pools, we are able to avoid the use unnecessary portions of chemicals. Since 2016, our pools have been certified by the Ministry of Health with “Clean Pool Certificates”. We have contributed greatly to the economy and to the reduction of our carbon footprint by reducing electricity consumption by 2,000,000 Kwh/year. Furthermore, we have reduced our gas consumption by 135,000 kg/year, and we’ve reduced our water consumption by 30,415 m3/year in a 10 year period.
By ensuring the structural composition of the facility to be one and visually compatible with the surrounding nature of the facility, we ensured the protection of the habitat through landscape arrangement and afforestation. The diversification and production of our 160,000 m2 garden is done through our very own greenhouse, this greenhouse provides our garden needs. We are proud to mention that we produced 8,000 seedlings in 2019 in our greenhouse!
We periodically receive training for all our staff on environmental and actionplans, environmental policy, water and chemical use, and waste disposal.
As of 2014, we underline that we have received the “Environment Friendly Facility - Green Star” certificate by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and we have not taken a step back in our efforts to protect this honourable status.
As of 2015, we proudly carry our international “GreenKey” certificates.
We are proud of our “Blue Flag” certified, and we take every step decisively to maintain their unique and beautiful shades blue and cleanliness.
