OUR FOUNDATIONAL PILLARS.
We make a strong commitment to sustainability in the way we restore, develop & manage our destinations. We strive to find efficient & sustainable ways to develop our hospitality activities.
Guest experience is key to our vision and can only be realised by taking special care of our collaborators. As we structure our strategy, people remain at the center of everything we do.
We wholeheartedly believe that we can only prosper as a group if all stakeholders, close and remote, share in this prosperity. From our supplier approach to our efforts to give back, it forms our third core pillar.
Feeding from these 3 pillars is an approach
that focuses on pragmatic & sustainable development.
Restoring & Rehabilitating
Our approach focuses on giving existing properties a second life. We bring our hospitality expertise to these legacy establishments, breathing new life into them by blending differentiated, unique concepts, bringing them up to our sustainability standards and promoting them to our global audience.
Supporting the local economy

Sustainability & social responsibility
We take great care to minimise our environmental impact when restoring and operating our properties. From material to supplier selection, energy production & preservation, we strive to put into action our environmentally-friendly aspirations.
Developing our people
We aim to change the way the hospitality industry manage human capital, by putting our collaborator at the center of our approach, helping them develop in and beyond their current role, as well as sharing our growth & prosperity.

In our pursuit to enhance our social and environmental footprint, we enrolled in the Swiss Triple Impact (STI) program in 2020, an initiative by B Lab Switzerland. Leveraging the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guiding framework, the STI enables Swiss businesses to quantify their SDG contributions, thereby elevating their sustainable development performance.
Utilizing this foundation, we identified and prioritized SDGs paramount to our business and developed a comprehensive action plan. These objectives underwent an eligibility review process wherein B Lab Switzerland assessed the impact and relevance of each sustainability commitment and the associated action plan. Such diligent procedures have culminated in our listing in the STI Directory.
