Eight Sandals Resorts Receive EarthCheck Platinum Certification
March 19, 2013 - Sandals Resorts - Awards
While having fun in the sun at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, you may not realize you are helping save the environment too! This year, Sandals Resorts received its eighth Platinum Certified award from EarthCheck’s international Certification and Benchmarking program, more than any other hotel group in the world. Taking steps to reduce energy and water consumption, improve solid waste and wastewater disposal, prevent air pollution, protect marine life and foster strong bonds with local communities, on-property environmental managers work hard daily to keep every resort eco-friendly.
EarthCheck, the leading scientific Certification program in the world for travel and tourism, awards Platinum Certification to properties that meet or exceed established standards for ten years or more. EarthCheck rewarded four new Platinum Certifications for Sandals Halcyon Beach, Sandals Montego Bay, Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island and Sandals Royal Plantation, and renewed the Platinum Certification award for Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa, Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort, Sandals La Toc Golf Resort & Spa and Beaches Negril Resort & Spa.
Sandals Resorts has always made sustainability and social responsibility a core part of its mission and vision in the Caribbean and even provides eco-friendly training courses for its staff and suppliers.
