Environmental sustainability is a factor of fundamental importance for the protection of our future and that of our children. Sustainable development is the type of growth that allows new generations to carry out development while preserving the cultural and environmental heritage.
A development that must keep economic growth and the ecosystem in balance, guaranteeing environmental balance.
A concept that is based on ethical and political principles and which implies compatibility between modern economic systems, the conditions of daily life and respect for the ecosystem.
Generally speaking, we talk about the balance of the three Es: economy, equity and ecology. Thus, in summary, sustainable development is the union and balance between three dimensions: sustainable economy, environment and society.
Since we decided to open Casa San Giorgio, we have wondered how we should have guaranteed respect for nature with a sustainable tourism model that respects the beauty of this magical place.
We have therefore decided to take concrete steps in this direction, making the most of the resources that the planet makes available to us without wasting them.
For us at Casa San Giorgio, being a host means welcoming and allowing guests to enjoy the beauties of nature in total respect and harmony, without sacrificing comfort.
Casa San Giorgio . . . Have a Break!
We have installed a 15 Kilowatt photovoltaic system with storage batteries for night use that allows us to heat the water, to cook, illuminate the house and gardens at night, only thanks to the solar energy collected during the day.
At Casa San Giorgio we heat domestic water thanks to a new generation heat pump, limiting the use of fossil fuels as much as possible.
We collect and reuse rainwater for the garden.
We do not use chemical pesticides in the gardens and in the vegetable garden. We raise chickens, quails and other animals, for amateur purposes.
For most of the year we collect fresh eggs for our family and guests, as well as fruit and vegetables.
We decided to buy an electric car many years ago. . . as a natural consequence of our vision.
Thanks to our Nissan Leaf "Black Edition" we can access the restricted traffic areas of our beautiful Bergamo, without polluting.
