History

Founded in 1990 – within the André Jordan Group -, the Planbelas, Sociedade Imobiliaria, SA is the promoter and manager of the project Belas Country Club. The commitment of Planbelas to manage the estate in accordance with principles of sustainability is reinforced through mechanisms implemented to continually evaluate its economic, environmental and social performance.

Benefiting from André Jordan Group’s highly proactive environmental management philosophy, Belas Country Club was born with the aim of safeguarding an area of great natural beauty, adapting it to an urban project where the previous environmental qualities were rigorously preserved. The project was designed in accordance with a high landscape framing, a sensitive use of topography and protection of natural habitats, as well as promoting a diverse fauna and flora.

Sustainability

Benefiting from the management philosophy of the André Jordan Group, extremely proactive on environmental issues, the Belas Country Club was born with a concern to safeguard an area of great natural beauty, adapting to an urban project where old environmental qualities have been rigorously preserved. The project was designed according to a high landscape framing, a low population density, a sensitive use of topography and protection of natural habitats and promoting a diverse and native flora. Therefore, the entire construction and operating phase is conducted according to the most demanding environmental requirements.

Confirming our strong commitment to good sustainability practices is the recent award of the Sustainable Development Award promoted by Diário Económico and Heidrick & Struggles, which aims not only to assess the state of sustainability in Portugal, but also to identify and recognize the best national reference practices that are contributing to the country’s progress.

The 18-hole golf course has been integrated into the natural landscape and, since its construction phase, minimizing the environmental impact. Its maintenance and operation is subject to rigorous environmental control, attested by the achievement of environmental certification by Norm NP EN ISO 14001. PLANBELAS, SA was, in fact, one of the world pioneers in the environmental certification of golf courses according to this standard, extending then the certification to all the Belas Country Club and also to quality issues.

Conserving wildlife, controlling the use of chemicals and fertilizers, optimizing water consumption and control its quality, proper management of produced waste, controlling energy and fuel consumption, noise control, respecting the safety and hygiene standards as well as an effective Objectives And Targets Program and audits, are the key to a proper environmental and quality management of the Belas Country Club’s activities.

However, good environmental practices for the management of Belas Country Club go beyond compliance with current environmental legislation, as well as training, awareness and information of all stakeholders – employees, residents, golfers, visitors, shareholders, community, NGOs, suppliers, competent authorities, among others.

Thus, PLANBELAS, SA, assumes a clear philosophy in its Quality and Environment Policy for the correct management of natural resources, meeting the concept of “sustainable development” and for the satisfaction of the customer regarding Quality, having been recognized in recent years by several entities, including the National Geographic magazine.
