After a lot of effort, ARTIEM has become the first hotel chain corporation in Europe and third of the world obtaining the certificate. We tell you why.

ARTIEM was born from a family business, that currently it is making its transition from the 3rd to the 4rth generation. During these 45 years, we have always believed that the only way of growing, it is working together taking care of our environment.

That is why we work carefully on each of our actions, getting to cause a positive impact on our society, the environment, and the economy.

  • FreshPeople: Our work contributes on helping our society to make a step forward. Our mission is “to inspire people to be happy”. This commitment makes us build long-term relations with every person around us.
  • FreshPlanet: We are committed to respecting the nature. With all our joy, taking care of our environment every day with more sustainable actions.
  • FreshProfit: We focus on innovation and improving ourselves every day. Our highest award is the recognition from those around us. The benefits are not our main goal, it is the consequence of acknowledge that we are doing the right thing. We want to be the company that society wants to exist.

These are the three pillars that have led us transform into the first hotel chain corporation and third of the world to obtain the B Corp certificate.
