Green Valamar is much more than a socially responsible business. It is the value, promise and business philosophy of the brand

first_imgImagine that each of the 1000 newly planted trees is planted by the hotel guests themselves. Thus, the family spends one day outdoors, in nature and with joint efforts, and they specifically participate in this action. Each tree can be marked with “cardboard – ecological paper” with the family name and date. So through a concrete action, not like on social networks, each guest contributed to the protection of nature – with a concrete action, he left a part of himself in the destination, spent quality time with a family he will never forget and will watch every year the tree grows. Phenomenal positioning on a conscious and unconscious level. It’s the power of emotion, it’s today’s modern marketing. Zeleni Valamar is one of the nine umbrella programs of the company’s socially responsible business, within which activities in the field of environmental protection are systematically carried out and in which almost HRK 100 million has been invested in the previous three years. Attachment: VALAMAR PLANS TO PLANT 1.000 TREES ANNUALLY WITH A NEW INITIATIVE In Valamar, 96% of accommodation units have the ISO 14001 environmental management certificate, and six camps have been awarded the EU Ecolabel. “The implementation of a number of initiatives within the Green Valamar program aims to emphasize the importance of sustainable tourism development and care for the environment as an indispensable criterion for creating new value and long-term quality of the tourist offer.”They point out from Valamar. Valamar’s nine umbrella programs for corporate social responsibility Valamar procures 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources. A great example of leadership, because being a leader also means pushing the whole system forward with your example. Leadership in a burst, first by example, as it should be, not just on paper. An ad that “sells” such values ​​is a new step forward and a step forward in promotion, not selling a hotel and a bed. Sell ​​me a story (true story – emotions, experience), not a product. Well done to Valamar, take the road and show us the way. You have something to brag about and show off. The values ​​that are an integral part of the business philosophy and that you live by. Namely, as his wife told me at the time, her husband worked constantly as a successful doctor in the hospital, he was never or very rarely at home, and he almost never had time to spend time with his family, especially with his children. And he also hadn’t been on vacation with his family for years. Until that year, when they finally spent the summer in Croatia as families. It was this banal animated water polo tournament that afforded him quality time with his son. A moment that is more valuable to him than all the diplomas in his career. And that’s why he put it on his wall of pride, because it was that little animation degree that reminds him of the moment he spent with his son and family. That image and moment remained in my lasting memory and a reminder that gave me a sense of the animator’s future work. Wow that talks, right? And all thanks to one worthless animation degree. So this “cardboard” on every planted tree has a terrible value and message. I would like to further emphasize the word through one personal anecdote – he spent quality time with his family. Although Valamar, in my opinion, brags too little about responsible business policy, because that is exactly what modern marketing does today. It is not about selling fog, but about the values ​​they live by and according to which they act concretely. It is the concrete value, promise and strength of the brand. As concrete green steps within the company, to reduce their environmental impressions, as well as concrete actions aimed at improving the society and the destination in which they operate. Today, more than ever, ecology and green business are imperative, and that is what guests are looking for (they will ask for more) and will therefore choose the companies in which to stay. For a long time now, global brands no longer sell products, but emotions and experiences, including tourism. Thus, over 1000 trees and more than 50.000 different seedlings such as tall shrubs and perennials have already been planted in 2019 in Valamar hotels, resorts and camps. The current plant fund of Valamar on a total area of ​​589 ha from Istria to Dubrovnik consists of 30.000 trees. Also, two years ago, Valamar completely eliminated plastic straws from use in its hotels and camps.center_img And when it comes to the use of electricity from renewable sources, this is not news for Valamar, in fact, but only a continuation of the development policy because from the largest tourist company in Croatia, for the sixth year in a row are HEP ZelEn (HEP hydropower plant) certificates , this means that 100 percent of the electricity used in hotels and camps is provided from renewable sources. PLASTIC STRAWS DECOMPOSE AS MUCH AS 500 YEARS, SO VALAMAR RIVIERA DISPOSES OF PLASTIC STRAWS OUT OF USE Cover photo: Valamar Well, back to Valamar. One of Valamar’s ecological actions was cleaning the seabed – I love the Adriatic Sea. Imagine that guests who are otherwise engaged in diving, in cooperation with the diving club in action, emerge garbage from the sea and leave one object of garbage to themselves as an eternal reminder (souvenir) of the day. Garbage as such has no value, nor does a diploma, but when we add a narrative to it it becomes a valuable symbol. Green Valamar is much more than a socially responsible business program. He is a value, business philosophy and currency that is increasingly sought after. Whatever they think about Valamar, they have the facts behind them, and that is that in 2019 alone, they invested 129 million kuna in CSR’s umbrella programs. Procurement of electricity from renewable sources and other energy efficiency and sustainability measures over the past few years have reduced total direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by more than 70 percent.  Valamar Riviera has developed nine umbrella corporate social responsibility programs, in which it invests minimally 2,5 place their annual income. In 2019, investments were made in these umbrella programs 5,8 place income, respectively HRK 129 million. One of the most famous actions is certainly last year’s Valamar initiative “1.000 Valamar trees”, otherwise the largest green initiative of this type in Croatian tourism, in which Valamar plants at least a thousand new trees a year in its destinations along the Adriatic coast. This largest green initiative in Croatian tourism emphasizes the importance of sustainable tourism development This year, Valamar successfully implemented a project aimed at increasing energy efficiency and ending the use of heating oil in the Corinthia Baška hotel complex on Krk, with a total value of as much as HRK 10,6 million, co-financed by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy. By the way, I had my first contact with tourism at the age of 16,5 when I started working as an animator. As part of the afternoon animation program, there was always some sports activity for guests, ie families, one of which was water polo in the hotel pool for guests. Two small goals were placed on half of the pool on each side and the guests were divided into groups and water polo was played through the entertainment (animation water polo for entertainment purposes, not a real tournament). At the end of the “tournament” we awarded diplomas for all couples and handwritten the names of the teams or the family name as well as a symbolic prize for first place. Nothing special. But the following year, an elderly woman from Germany approaches me, thanks me, and shows me a picture of her husband sitting in his office. At first it was not clear to me why she was showing me a picture of her husband, but when she gave me a narrative or a story with the picture (the power of storytelling with a photo / example Rob Walker and his eBay story SignificantObjects ) I got chills and then discovered my philosophy of tourism (tourism is emotions, experience and stories). Namely, her husband was then one of the three best doctors in Germany, and in his office behind a desk on the wall he had hundreds of various professional diplomas, recognitions and certificates as a result of his work and business success. But in the middle of the wall, among all those accolades, he had framed our animation degree in water polo as well! !! !! last_img read more

Byron prepares second Gulf of Mexico well for production

first_imgU.S. oil and gas operator Byron Energy has completed the second of three wells on the South Marsh Island Block 71 (SM 71) lease in the Gulf of Mexico, staying on track to start production at the lease in mid-March.The company said on Monday that the perforation and sand control operations have concluded on the SM 71 F2 well.It is worth reminding that the first well SM 71 F1 was completed in February 2018 and is ready for production.Back to the second well, Byron said that a 72-foot measured depth interval of the B65 Sand was perforated on February 26, 2018 and sand control measures were pumped across the interval on February 28, 2018. After rigging down the pumping equipment, 2 7/8” production tubing was run in the well. After the production tubing was landed, a short flow back to recover completion fluids and oil occurred before the F2 well was shut in by closing a surface controlled subsurface safety valve.No production rates were determined during this phase of the project due to limited oil storage tank capacity currently on location. As each SM71 well is hooked into the production manifold and SM71 lease pipelines, it will be individually tested, and optimal rates will be established based on reservoir pressure drawdown, the company explained.The F2 well is the second of three completions Byron will perform on the SM71 F platform. The Ensco 68 drilling has now skidded into position over the SM71 F3 well and completion operations in the D5 Sand have begun. The D5 Sand in the F3 well will be completed with sand control measures similar to the F1 and F2 wells. These sand control measures are designed to improve the production rate and to minimize reservoir pressure drawdown, resulting in better performance and longevity.The SM71 F3 well will be the last well completed for production during this phase of the project and production will begin shortly after the F3 well is finished.Final piping and instrumentation work on the SM71 F platform is nearing completion. Production start-up is targeted for mid-March. It is anticipated that the three wells will utilize a high percentage of the SM71 F Platform’s oil and gas production capacity.Byron Energy is the operator of SM71 and has a 50% working interest and a 40.625% net revenue interest in SM71. Otto Energy holds the remaining interest in SM71.Maynard Smith, Byron Energy Ltd CEO, had this to say about the SM71 F1 operations: “The completion operations at SM71 have gone to plan and the pressures of both wells have met our expectations. Our team of service companies and our consulting engineers have worked together very well, and we are right on schedule for a start-up of production in mid-March.”last_img read more

NFL decision on Tyreek Hill ‘stuns’ league observers

first_imgMany league observers expected Hill to face a suspension under the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. The NFL’s decision to allow him to begin training camp drew widespread surprise and condemnation by many, who noted that even if there is no evidence tying him to his son’s injury, the comments to Espinal should have been enough to merit a suspension.In sports and business: greater talent = greater tolerance. https://t.co/UCPPWOSbNh— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) July 19, 2019Criticism of Personal Conduct Policy discipline by the NFL is not due to it being too harsh or too soft. It is because it is too arbitrary. #tyreekhill— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) July 19, 2019If you were confused by how the NFL’s personal conduct policy was applied before, you’ll be even more confused by how it was not applied today. #TyreekHill #ConsistencyMatters— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) July 19, 2019Every investigation this league engages in is a PR stunt. #NFL https://t.co/9gi43XADcs— John McMullen (@JFMcMullen) July 19, 2019This should go over really well. Stunned the league would make this decision. https://t.co/NSYwbl2ccY— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) July 19, 2019Not surprised the league didn’t suspend Tyreek Hill for assault, given the lack of conclusive evidence. I am surprised he wasn’t punished for his threatening comments towards the mother. https://t.co/Z9OdJkM1uk— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) July 19, 2019At a minimum I’d like a public explanation from Tyreek Hill as to how his son broke his arm. I don’t think that’s asking too much.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) July 19, 2019Hill issued a statement after the NFL’s announcement thanking the league.”To my children, my beautiful children: I love you all dearly and I promise you all that I will continue to strive to be the best father, the best friend, the best role model, and the best mentor that I can be,” Hill said. The Chiefs had suspended Hill indefinitely in April after a recording of a conversation between Hill and his then-fiancée, Crystal Espinal went public. The two could be heard discussing their son, with Hill saying, “You need to be terrified of me, too, b—.” The NFL’s announcement Friday that Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill has been cleared to begin training camp was met with surprise by many league observers.The league said it had conducted a “comprehensive investigation” into allegations that Hill had abused his 3-year-old son in an incident in March, but based on the evidence available, Hill had not violated league policies. The district attorney in Johnson County (Kan.) declined to press charges in the case but said he believed a crime had been committed.last_img read more

A Bit of Ireland Comes to Red Bank

first_imgBy Mary Ann BourbeauRED BANK – Celtic Thunder is returning to North America for a 75-city tour, and the first stop is at the Count Basie Theatre on Aug. 19.“The first night is always very special,” said Ryan Kelly, who has been a member of the five-member Irish group since it was formed in Dublin in 2007. “Everything will be fresh. We’re happy to be kicking off our tour at the Count Basie Theatre.”Celtic Thunder celebrates the heritage of Irish and Celtic music. The members are known not only for their vocal harmonies and dramatic solos but their eclectic repertoire, which ranges from traditional Irish and folk music to adult contemporary, rock and classical numbers. There will be a mix of lively songs, including “Galway Girl” and “Raggle Taggle Gypsy,” and soft ballads such as “Danny Boy” and “Noreen.”The show also features dramatic, state-of-the-art lighting effects on a stage set resembling an ancient stone pathway, making it a theatrical event as well.“People love it because it’s a combination of things,” said Kelly. “We see three generations from the same family in our audience, and they all take away something different from the show. We have great pride that our music brings people together like that.”The shows also have a little comedic action, such as when the members perform the traditional Irish drinking songs.“We’re just a group of lads working together and we’re good friends as well,” he said. “The comedy adds entertainment for us and for the crowd. People want to sing along and have fun. It wouldn’t be an Irish show without a few Irish drinking songs.”Shortly after Celtic Thunder was formed, the group gained recognition from a performance broadcast on PBS, and they have been touring through North America, Australia and South Africa ever since. They have sold more than 2 million albums and topped the Billboard charts for world album.“Our fan base has been amazing since Day One,” said Kelly. “Irish and Celtic music is all about storytelling. We take people away from their lives for a couple of hours.”Kelly had always loved music but after graduating college, felt he needed a “real job.” In 2007, he was working as an accountant when he saw an article about auditions for Celtic Thunder.“I never really tried to do music full-time, but I thought I would give it a go and see what happens,” he said. “I never believed I had a chance. But lo and behold, here I am. We’re still going strong and about to embark on one of our biggest tours.”Kelly is also looking forward to his free time when he’s back in the United States. He is a big fan of American sports, and is hoping to catch a football or basketball game while he is here, in addition to seeing sights he has never seen before.“I love to travel and explore new places,” he said. “I’ve probably seen more of America than a lot of Americans.”Celtic Thunder will release its latest album, “Legacy, Volume Two,” on Aug. 12. It contains many of the best-loved songs from their tours, including “Streets of New York,” “Seven Drunken Nights,” “Isle of Innisfree” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”“Being on stage tops everything,” said Kelly. “Every night is different, and it’s always something very special. I know how lucky I am to have this job and do something I really love.”last_img read more
