Mallorca leads the way with environmentally-friendly homes

As Mallorca charts its path towards sustainable tourism, the selection of environmentally-friendly homes for sale on the island is growing as local developers and architects look to eco-solutions for new construction.

Mallorca is committed to looking after the environment. Perhaps it comes from living on an island with an increased awareness of global temperatures and sea levels but the Balearic government is leading the way in the Mediterranean toward sustainable tourism with a strategy based on a circular model of use and recycling, and a goal of becoming the world’s first ‘circular model’ tourist destination.

The Balearics also aim to have 35% renewable energy sources by 2030 and 100% by 2050, with 46 solar energy parks installed by the end of this year generating over 326,000 MW of energy for the island.

The clear sense of direction towards a sustainable mix for the economy and the environment has already led to the development of a hydrogen plant in the centre of the island that is expected to generate 300 tonnes of green hydrogen – the first plant of its kind in the Mediterranean.

Shared goals

Everyone in Mallorca understands the need to move towards more sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices, including our developers and architects, who are now designing and building homes with high energy-efficiency and low carbon-footprints. Mallorca is on course to become one of the most sustainable communities in the Mediterranean, with an unbeatable choice of green homes.

Engel & Völkers Mallorca understands the importance of working towards a sustainable model but also sees a great opportunity for Mallorca to attract tourists and home-buyers looking for environmentally friendly homes and lifestyles.

“We support the Balearic Government’s commitment to the long-term sustainability of the region,” says Florian Hofer, the MD of Engel & Völkers in the Balearic Islands. “There is growing interest among our clients for new construction projects with innovative architecture, environmentally friendly technology design and energy features that positively impact the value of the property. Making the most of the island’s 300 days of sunshine and turning that into sustainable energy is increasingly in demand”.
