All aspects of life at Fajã dos Padres are deeply rooted in preserving the rich land that feeds us. So we shape our decisions and ground our community by a common goal: care for the land that has sustained us for centuries.
Given today's circumstance, there´s no doubt a space like this is considered a hidden gem. Since the Jesuit establishment in the 16th century, its abundance, biodiversity, and immense natural beauty has not been lost. While we are fortunate enough to experience its immense natural beauty, we must remain conscious of its vulnerability and accountable for its preservation. We are learning and evolving to adapt to our uncertain biosphere as we consider its protection our unequivocal duty.
This duty extends beyond our coastal stretch, and involves our entire island of Madeira, and even further- mother earth herself. This plants the foundations of our corporate responsibility- one built on integrating and evaluating all environmental performances of our activities. So we have thoughtfully created the following Sustainability Policy to ensure we can safeguard our classified Cultural and Natural Space.
Our efforts to minimise negative environmental effects will remain a constant priority. Not only does our mission allow for natural benefits, it also sets the stage for significant community guidance and engagement. Like the islands, we believe that we are separated on the surface but connected in the deep; and we are proud that our positive influence is amplified through our wonderful team and guests, their families, and everyone else along our local supply chain.
