Sustainability has played a central role in the development of Tarčin Forest Resort from the very beginning. A solid basis for this is the overall planning process conducted through intensive collaboration with government authorities and environmental, historic preservation and tourism organizations. The expansion of the resort and the collaboration with local and regional businesses generates new jobs and promotes sustainable and local value creation. As much business as possible is given to comapnies in the region- during both the construction and operational phases- thereby supporting economic sustainability.
Careful management of resources runs through the Tarčin Forest Resort project like a golden thread. All apartments villas and hotel has been designed to be as 'Eco-Friendly' as possible and features a central, energy efficient heating/cooling heat-pump system that provides a 'natural feel', comfortable environment. A heat pump is a device that provides heat energy from a source of heat to a destination called a "heat sink". Heat pumps are designed to move thermal energy opposite to the direction of spontaneous heat flow by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one. A heat pump uses some amount of external power to accomplish the work of transferring energy from the heat source to the heat sink.
