Boom in tourism has multiple impacts. There are undoubtedly economic benefits at a national level due to the increased revenue available, but tourism requires the use of disproportionate shares of local natural resources, of which water is often the most crucial. Much of this water, when use, is disposed of without adequate treatment in ways that impact irrevocably on the surrounding water resources and their ecosystems. Tourism is vital to the economic well-being and the reduction of poverty in many developing countries.
Since natural resources are a powerful part of the attraction of this industry, our core focus is resource preservation. In many cases though, tourism leaves an undeniable ecological footprint. Countries that depend on tourism are making major efforts to simultaneously maintain their tourism industries and reduce the environmental impact of the industry.
Recreation is a major use of and a major issue in the planning of water resources in all parts of the world. The use of sports fields, beaches, lakes and reservoirs for recreation is an important consideration even in the prosperous countries of Europe and North America. It can add significant economic benefits to these resources, but also has implications on water quality in ecological terms.
Buildings, such as hotels and resorts, typically consume 30–40 percent of all primary energy used. Over 80 percent of the environmentally harmful emissions from buildings are due to energy consumption during the times when the buildings are in use.
Our concept of ‘simplification’ means decreasing the number of components and materials, simplifying the design of necessary components and using the same component or system for different functions and optimizing the whole building, not the sub-units. Not only does simplification lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system.
We will utilize our unique portfolio of technologies in our ‘Low Energy Building’ projects. These technologies include geothermal equipment and heating/cooling air pumps for the ground source and drilling installation applications; Intelligent energy storage battery system developed for PV solar and wind power installations into national or regional electric distribution grids; networked power management; solar panels and thin films; solar heat collectors; electric car stations and battery swappings; vehicle to grid battery storage; onsite energy generation and storage; building information management; building automation systems; real-time demand management.
Our projects will result in environmentally friendly and cost-effective hotel or resort, a building that can reduce energy consumption, and also lead to improved indoor climate and air quality. Not only does simplification lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system. Other principles include controlled ventilation and efficient heat recovery, improved thermal insulation and using structures as heat storage units.
Based on our diverse competence in economically efficient and environmentally friendly construction, together we enable the construction. We aim to combine several technologies for entire new and advanced solutions in terms of sustainable hotel and resort development.

Ecotourism is responsible travel to fragile, pristine, and usually protected areas that strive to be low impact and (often) small scale (as an alternative to mass tourism). Its purpose is to educate the traveler; provide funds for ecological conservation; directly benefit the economic development and political empowerment of local communities; and foster respect for different cultures and for human rights. Since the 1980s ecotourism has been considered a critical endeavor by environmentalists, so that future generations may experience destinations relatively untouched by human intervention. Several university programs use this description as the working definition of ecotourism.
Generally, ecotourism focuses on volunteering, or voluntourism, personal growth and environmental responsibility. Ecotourism typically involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. One of the goals of ecotourism is to offer tourists insight into the impact of human beings on the environment, and to foster a greater appreciation of our natural habitats.
Responsible ecotourism includes programs that minimize the negative aspects of conventional tourism on the environment and enhance the cultural integrity of local people. Therefore, in addition to evaluating environmental and cultural factors, an integral part of ecotourism is the promotion of recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation, and creation of economic opportunities for local communities. For these reasons, ecotourism often appeals to environmental and social responsibility advocates.
Agritourism is the practice of attracting visitors and travelers to agricultural areas, generally for educational and recreational purposes. Due to economic hardships and changes in the farming and livestock industries across the globe, many farmers, especially those with small, family-owned farms, have found they must supplement their agricultural business model and explore new ways of generating income.
Likewise, as the distance between the production and consumption of agricultural products grows, so too does consumer interest in how crops and livestock are raised. People want to reconnect with the agricultural practices of the past.
These two needs come together in agritourism which helps rebuild a relationship between producer and consumer that has all but vanished with the rise of heavily-industrialized farming methods.
