Costa Navarino

Costa Navarino, developed by TEMES S.A., is a project that begun to be materialized following the vision of the late Captain Vassilis Constantakopoulos (Founder of Costa Navarino), to establish his homeland Messinia as a high-end sustainable tourism destination, and to enhance the local economy with respect to the environment, history and traditions, local communities.

Our company promotes the region through the development of the destination, while preserving its natural beauty and heritage. Costa Navarino is now considered among the top quality tourism destinations in the Mediterranean. At the heart of our philosophy lies a strong commitment to environmental and social responsibility, aiming at a sustainable tourism development in harmony with the natural environment and local communities of Messinia. The project we introduce to the Best Initiative in Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility , is our Navarino Pet Community. The initiative was born in 2015, to take care of stray dogs and cats of the area in difficult or dangerous situations, while raising awareness and engagement among employees and guests. It is a volunteering program, providing food, shelter and medical care to the area’s stray animals whilst developing a new pet-friendly mentality through its activities.

Navarino Pet Community is an innovative initiative, and reflects our approach to holistic sustainable development, in alignment with the local communities and environment. Volunteer staff members focus their efforts on providing treatment and finding a permanent home for the stray animals of the area ranging from eight months to four years old. Housed in a specially designed space with five kennels and a garden, the shelter can accommodate up to 10 adult dogs and four or five puppies at any given time. To date, over 30 dogs have been adopted by partners and guests of Costa Navarino and now enjoy a better life in Greece and abroad. Another 10 dogs are being sponsored by friends of the shelter who cover the monthly expenses of their care whilst all the effort has contributed to the mobilization and empathy raising of the local community.
