Greenevents has renewed, for the fourth consecutive year, the adhesion to the Biosphere -Responsible Tourism

We understand sustainable management as that which includes (1) social criteria (promoting the local economy, fair trade products, social and labor insertion of disadvantaged groups, ethical banking, strengthening the social market, and participation in associations that promote sustainable development), (2) environmental (prevent and reduce the impact on the generation of waste and the consumption of non-renewable resources, and choose the consumption of renewables) and (3) organization and work under the principles of cooperativism (participation , transparency, salary and gender equity, training, personal conciliation, sharing the knowledge generated).
