MAX Tourism has labeled us as an example when it comes to committing ourselves to the environment and citizenship. The following article develops details of how the hotels of Barcelona and Negresco Princess minimizes the impact by implementing the Princess 360.
A business model committed to the environment and citizenship
Hotel Barcelona Princess and Hotel Negresco Princess, both hotels belonging to the Princess Hotels & Resorts chain, have spent these days looking back to remember the most important moments of a solidary year that has left its mark in its history, 2018.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is one of the values that defines Princess hotels, which are committed to their immediate environment, respect for the environment and citizenship. They are constantly looking for the minimization of their impact, as well as the implementation of a responsible management based on honesty, family conciliation and trust with your team.
Following this premise, the hotels carry out their own sustainability policy implemented in 2016 and baptized as “Princess 360º”, in which the “Princess & You” program was presented, until now the mainstay of its CSR Plan, and to which has been added the new side “Princess & Me”, driven by Laura Fernandez, new addition to the team as head of CSR and Innovation for the two urban hotels of the chain in Barcelona, this combining the internal and the external part of the hotel and completing its 360 virtuous circle:
Princess & You: It includes the environment, customers and society and since its beggining, actions such as participation in solidarity activities such as the Inter Hotel Games or the Clean-up of the Marine Fund, or innovative initiatives have been carried out within it at the Negresco Restaurant to join the realfood movement.
Princess & Me: This mainstay incorporates the internal client and aims to promote a healthy culture in all areas, which ensures the well-being of its employees, as well as promoting the culture of recognition by ensuring their commitment and pride.
Likewise, under this solidarity, responsibility and commitment to the environment, Hotel Negresco Princess and Barcelona Princess, at the same time that they assists in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals established by the World Tourism Organization in its organization, each year it allocates part of its benefits to a different solidarity cause by voting of all its employees, as is the case of the Abracadabra Foundation that has been chosen this year as the global cause solidarity of the Negresco Princess and the case of Make-A-Wish Spain, chosen charitable cause of Barcelona Princess.
As every year, all the people who are part of the Negresco Princess Hotel in Barcelona, choose a solidary cause that will be our active and voluntary contribution to the social, economic and environmental improvement of our society.
For the whole team, choosing which will be this annual social action represents an important decision and a commitment. This year, after studding several proposals, our winning cause was the Abracadabra Foundation. A solidarity project that gives magic and smiles to children staying in hospitals to make them have a more pleasant stay. As they say: “Thanks to the solidarity magic we managed to provide an extra dose of illusion very necessary to overcome the difficult moments.”
Last Sunday we were lucky to have a very special magician at the Negresco Princess hotel in Barcelona. Carles Mag, a solidary magician of the Abracadabra Foundation who came to bring us plenty of illusion to adults and children with their visual and participative games. Incredible effects, cards, impossible knots, sponges, coins and many other things that impressed all of us.
An event for all customers and friends who wanted to share with us the illusion of solidarity magic, both in La Terrazza Negresco and in the Negresco Restaurant.
In addition, coinciding with the # SetmanaTerrasses18 that takes place in Barcelona from June 1st to 10th and that organizes the Gremi d’Hotels de Barcelona , on the 3rd we will also have Carles Mag who will once again bring the illusion to all of us, and on Sunday 10th June will be the magician David el Mag who will surprise us with live and impressive magic at the Hotel Barcelona Princess.
