Sustainability – a heartfelt concern
Supposedly, you love travelling. Us too? We adore the diversity in our world, but also, in particular, this lovely spot of earth around Golden Hill. Thus, we are seeking to safeguard this precious heritage for the following generations. To achieve this, we believe in a new form of economy that takes into consideration the well-being of both humans and wildlife. Consequently, sustainability is for us not only a central feature of our corporate culture, but also involves a conscious life-style aiming at a perfect well-being.
Apart from respecting the principles of a sustainable architecture, we are particularly mindful of taking into account social and ecological issues in all what we do.

“I like the approach conciliating human and environmental requirements with profitability, hence an economy focusing on human well-being and being in harmony with nature and the universe. In my way of life, I am focusing on health, sustainability, quality, local roots, ecology, fair trade, well-being and fitness. This is not a vain saying, but an essential part of our corporate philosophy according to the motto: “Be the change you wish to see in the world!” (quotation from Mahatma Gandhi).
