- VIK hotels group's commitment to the environment has led the hotel chain to opt for greener hotels and guide their business activity under the principles of sustainable development.
In order to seek not only energy savings but to contribute to the use of virtually inexhaustible natural sources, VIK hotels group is positioned as one of the pioneering hotel chains in the promotion of ecological hotels in the Canary Islands and in the use of sustainable techniques with the environment in the tourism field.
Since 2007, the VIK Hotel San Antonio in Lanzarote uses solar cooling technology with a solar thermal system in which heat is used to generate cold, considered the first of its characteristics and the largest in its segment in the Canary Islands, with a solar catchment area of 2,894 m2, which makes the VIK Hotel San Antonio a leading eco-hotel in its sector.
The sun's rays affect the solar thermal panels, covering a large part of the most important energy demands in the hotel: the hot water, the air conditioning of the pools and the excess of heat through absorption machines is cooled, and It is used for air conditioning.
The solar thermal installation generates an environmental benefit equivalent to stop emitting 700 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere. These avoided CO2 emissions are the equivalent of those that would be generated by a car that went around the world 35 times, or the environmental benefit that the set of 4.5 million trees would bring in 25 years.
VIK hotels group has turned sustainable development and its commitment to ecological hotels into a reality, becoming aware of its importance and contributing in this way to create, not only a more competitive and more sustainable tourism model, but more respectful with the environment and durable.
