Policies of Green PurchasesJul 31, 2014
Conscious of the problems that confront humanity in the environmental dimension, in the Punta Leona Hotel & Club we are committed to sustainable practices; we take into account that any acquired sustainable practice brings with it environmental impacts, from the extraction of the raw material, the processing, distribution, use and even in the final disposing of the product.
The decisions that we make at the time of the purchase and the hiring of the services can have a very important contribution in relation to respect towards the environment.
We are committed to having a policy of green purchases, meaning to work according to our budget, with providers whose products and services are environmentally friendly and devoted to the national legislation.
We support the environmental policies, the environmental rights principles and the national legislation that has as an objective to protect the environment, the wellbeing of the human being and the future generations:
Chapter 4 of the Agenda 21 of the United Nations: “Evolution of the methods of consumptions”, which indicates the necessity to promote methods of consumption and the considerable influence that they could have in public opinion as well as in the business.
The articles 46 and 50 of the Political Constitution of Costa Rica:
Article 46:”The consumers and users have a right to the protection of health, environment, security and economic interests; in receiving adequate and true information; to the liberty of choice, and to equal treatment.”
Article 50: “All people have a right to a healthy and ecologically balanced environment. Due to that you are legitimatized to denounce the acts that infringe that right and to require the reparation of the damage done.”
The articles 2 in section d) of the Organic Law of the Environment of Costa Rica (Law #7554):
“That who contaminates the environment or causes harm will be responsible in manner that the laws of the Republic and the current international agreements establish”.
The General Management and the Departments of Purchase and Corporate Relations and Diffusion of the Punta Leona Hotel & Club, commit to implement green purchases, advising us and updating us in a continuous manner about this matter.
