The environmental practices of Cancun Palace have been recognized by EarthCheck; the world’s leading sustainable travel and tourism certification organization.
EarthCheck is widely regarded as the world’s most scientifically rigorous environmental management Program, designed specifically for the travel and tourism industry. It looks at key environmental indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, and community commitment to determine an operator’s standard of performance.
In June 2011, successfully undertook EarthCheck Benchmarking, which resulted in our being awarded the EarthCheck Benchmarked Status.
Our EarthCheck Benchmark report states that “In addition to having a Sustainability Policy in place, ten of the assessed EarthCheck indicators are at or above the Baseline level. From the benchmarking data provided, six indicators, Energy Consumption, Water Savings Rating, Community Contributions Rating, Paper Products Rating, Cleaning Products Rating and Pesticide Products Rating, are at or above the Best Practice level, which is an achievement to be highly commended.”
Using the EarthCheck Program will ensure our systems and the technologies remain in keeping with the latest advances in climate change science and measurement of greenhouse gas emissions.
Triple bottom line measurement of our performance and a willingness to submit data for independent assessment provides our guests with the certainty that our environmental credentials go well beyond mere tick box action.
We recognise there are many companies you could choose to support and thank you for supporting ours. In so doing, you are helping care for the planet and can trust that we are doing everything possible to minimise the environmental footprint resulting from your travels.
