AlmaVerde comes "Highly Commended"

whatgreenhome.comPioneering eco-resort developers AlmaVerde Village & Spa in the Western Algarve of Portugal has received a ‘Highly Commended’ Award as a result of its commitment to sustainability by the independent eco-property website, www.whatgreenhome.com. The award was received for a variety of environmentally friendly initiatives, including Coolhouse, AlmaVerde’s innovative air cooling technology which reduces carbon emissions by a staggering 94% compared to conventional air conditioning.

The website independently reviews eco-properties for sale on more than 70 developments in 22 countries worldwide, including the UK. It awarded four out of five green ticks to AlmaVerde for its green measures that include reduced energy consumption, the economical recycling of waste, the use of sustainable building materials and water conservation, all of which are in operation at the development.

Gordon Miller, editor of whatgreenhome.com, said: “AlmaVerde Village & Spa is one of the pioneers of eco-friendly development, having begun building sustainably at the resort in the early years of the Millennium. Principal architect Jes Mainwaring and his team have taken a long, hard look at the environmental conditions locally and applied a joined up thinking approach to sustainability that makes AlmaVerde one of the greenest resorts in Europe.”

Managing Director at AlmaVerde, John Tranmer says:  “Buildings are responsible for half of the world's total energy consumption, and for half of the resulting carbon dioxide emissions. We were determined that our development should adopt better practices and are delighted that whatgreenhome.com should recognize us in this mission.”

Best House – Portugal (Silver), Best Landscape Design (Gold) and Best Innovation (Silver). It has also won the prestigious European Royal Award for Sustainability.
