Sportstages has developed a label with which it wants to inform its customers about which hotels and sports facilities from its range are making extra efforts to prevent and combat Covid-19 and other possible infections.
Sportstages has been working behind the scenes for a while on its own sustainability label, because traveling and sports are not without consequences. We are thinking of the sustainable use of energy, water, materials and dealing responsibly with nature.
Because of Covid-19, we have also developed a second label in addition to the development of our sustainability label. We were inspired by the initiative of Turismo de Portugal, which launched the Clean & Safe label for the tourism sector. The label requires the implementation of hygiene and cleaning measures to prevent contamination risks and safe procedures to ensure the exploitation of tourism activities. In Portugal, more than 4000 companies have already applied for the Clean & Safe label. This demonstrates the commitment of the Portuguese companies to welcome tourists in safe conditions.
Sports internships drew up a list of measures that hotels and sports facilities must at least meet in order to be awarded the label. As soon as the accommodations have submitted a declaration of commitment, Sportstages will award the Clean & Safe label.
The sustainability label will be further developed and launched later this year.
