Our body, like our planet, is made up of approximately 70% water. This element is as vital for us as for the rest of the living beings and therefore it is very important that we all make a responsible use of it.
Why should we take care of our water?
Because it is necessary for life. We could not last more than three or four days without drinking water. It is essential for the development of organic processes such as digestion, as well as in the absorption and elimination of waste. Besides, it provides structure to the circulatory system and distributes nutrients to the whole body through the bloodstream.
Because it is necessary for the environment. Water contributes to the stability and regulation of environments and the organisms that inhabit them, thus becoming a factor that determines the survival of the planet’s fauna and flora. It also plays a role in the photosynthesis process of plants, which has a great impact on ecosystems.
Because it is scarce. Although many of us have easy access to water through a faucet, not everyone in the world is as fortunate. Water scarcity affects more than 40% of the world’s population. Experts from the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs report that nearly 1.2 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water and are forced to travel long distances to find it and meet their most basic needs.

What are we doing at Grupo Piñero to take care of our water?
In our Group, we are very aware of the importance of water and therefore our commitments in this regard are:
1. Making responsible use of our supply sources, for which we monitor consumption through the installation of smart meters and analyze the status of aquifers through the monitoring of exploitation
2. Offering quality water in all processes through primary treatment of drinking water and quality control of water at source and consumption points.
3. Ensuring the adequate treatment of liquid waste through treatment plants in all our hotels, complying with the parameters established by law for its discharge to the subsoil.
4. Promoting its reuse in secondary uses in the surroundings of our hotels and residential areas, through tertiary treatments that guarantee the safety and health of our clients.
