Sustainable living on Ibiza - How to protect nature on the island

Live like in paradise: With the purchase of a property on Ibiza, the dream of your own house, apartment or villa in front of a Mediterranean backdrop can soon become a reality. With its breathtaking beaches, azure waters and hospitable inhabitants, the beautiful Balearic island offers the perfect backdrop to forget even the most stressful everyday life. This unique flair attracts people with a taste for the exquisite lifestyle from all over the world. This has many advantages and is part of Ibiza's charm - after all, the Balearic island is also characterized by its diversity and the peaceful coexistence of many interesting cultures. Nevertheless, this lively hustle and bustle is not always very sustainable. In order to preserve the island's natural resources and maintain the high quality of life of its inhabitants, the government has launched "Ibiza Sostenible" (Sustainable Ibiza). The real estate agents at Engel & Völkers Ibiza know exactly what you can expect from this.

Sustainability with a high volume of tourists: These are the government's plans for Ibiza 

The "Ibiza Sostenible" platform is promoted and run by public bodies, institutions and companies on the island. The aim is to achieve the United Nations' plans for the sustainable development of the island by 2030. This is intended to make the Balearic island stand as a global role model for responsible tourism. "Ibiza Sostenible" also focuses on people with special needs, the promotion of the culture and tradition of the islanders and regional products. In this way, a sustainable circular economy is promoted. Importantly, the government does not want to reduce the number of vacationers in any way. On the contrary - its program includes tourism promotion campaigns. Environmentally conscious visitors who respect the island's culture and want to get to know it enable it to develop fairly in economic and social terms. Thus, a variety of joint bicycle tours, visits to wineries, herbalism workshops and much more are regularly offered to anyone interested in exploring the regional offerings while enjoying the diverse nature of the beautiful Mediterranean island.

The program also frequently distributes reusable bags and beverage containers, as well as sustainable ashtrays, to raise awareness among both visitors and residents of the island about the issue of environmental pollution caused by plastic waste and cigarettes lying around.

How Ibiza's environmentally conscious living enhances the quality of life 

Ibiza's residents feel once again, through the new environmental campaign, that their well-being is of extraordinary interest to the government. Those who stay here should feel safe and comfortable. The measures taken to preserve the paradisiacal natural environment and the respectful interaction between residents and visitors are the hallmarks of the island's peaceful character, leading to an even higher standard of living.
