SUSTAINABILITY | MIRAGGIO ECO-FOOTPRINT PROGRAM
Greece. Halkidiki. Kassandra. Kanistro. Every day at Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort we are engaged in the unrivalled miracles of this earthborn sanctuary. The sun-kissed sand, the warm air, cool springs and green trees of Kassandra, the birds, the blue sky, the lore and the myths for ancient deities, giants and nymphs… the mirage & reality of Greece.
In order to preserve this haven, we paid special attention during design and construction stages. The greatest consideration was taken in selecting and handling materials, in order to create a venue with a contemporary environmental significance.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort is founded upon green forethought and eco-principles. We are committed to operate and grow, maintaining the highest level of sustainability.
Minimizing the venue’s impact on the lush green forests, water ground springs, crystal seawater and sandy beaches, is a top-level priority, which stems from the top of the corporate ladder and is implemented down to the property level
Environmental Responsibility is an integral part of our business strategy. We develop and utilize different policies and constructions novelties that result in the lowest possible greenhouse gas emissions and inspire our guests and peers to contribute to a thriving and prosperous planet.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort’s enviromental footprint is minimal, due to the state of the art Geothermic Exchange System. It is the all same system that provides space cooling and heating, pool heating as well as hot water in the most energy efficient way.
The reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is equivalent of 632 tons of CO2 annually.
The 8300 sqm of energy efficient green roofs with drought tolerant succulents, offers support to the environment and also a visually aesthetic space for our guest to see and enjoy. This kind of flora is sustained in a shallow substrate layer and requires minimal maintenance. Moreover, it provides many benefits for the environment such as reduction of the heat island effect and contributes to the air and water quality of the area.
