Privileged and Socially Responsible
One of the greatest luxuries we offer our guests is the opportunity to participate in many initiatives toward the greater good. Discover how we’re investing in a sustainable future for the benefit of generations to come.
The Corporate Social Responsibility policy is managed by our dedicated BurleBirds Team, made up of members representing all professions in the Hotel.
Bed & Bath Linen
When staying at Palácio Tangará, you have the option of not changing your bed and bath linen daily. This action is part of our desire to protect the environment and enables significant savings in water and energy.
Save the Bees
Palácio Tangará and Chef Felipe Rodrigues are commited to the maintainance of the bees in the wildlive. Since 2019 we host a hive of stingless bees in the external area of the Hotel.
Our goal is to minimize our production of waste. For the remaining waste, we work with an external company which is permanently on our site to improve recycling management. Each garbage bag is opened to separate the different types of waste. They are then recovered, weighed and revalued.
Each year during Earth Hour, candles are lit to illuminate the hotel's lobby and restaurants. The facade lighting is also turned off. Palácio Tangará runs fully on LED lighting, the only exception being the emergency exits.
The Palácio Tangará parking garage features a charging station with a universal plug, suitable for charging all electric and hybrid vehicles.
Wellbeing at Work
Meat Free Monday
Palácio Tangará has set up one vegetarian meal per week at the staff cafeteria in order to reduce meat and fish consumption and thus reduce the impact on the environment. It is a known fact that farming is responsible for increased greenhouse gas emissions, high water consumption and massive deforestation.
In order to reduce the use of single-use plastic, Palácio Tangará acquired water bottles for employees and set up fountains to cover the water requirement of all services.
Every 3 months, a Palácio Tangará team member is awarded the Quality Award of Service Excellence (QASE) and receives a bonus and certificate. Each year's QASE recipients are nominated for QASE of the year, to win a 5-day all expenses paid stay in the Oetker Collection Masterpiece Hotel of their choice.
