The “Green Globe Certification” is the highest and most thoroughly tested standard of responsible -tourism; an annual review of sustainable practices across all aspects of business from training and recruiting staff, to food and energy wastage, resort construction and biodiversity preservation, including the preservation of local culture of the surrounding communities.
Our aim is to have all of our resorts certified in the near future.
We’re progressively eradicating single-use plastic items from all our resorts worldwide, to reduce our footprint and keep the ocean clean.
Did you know that out of the 8 million tonnes of plastics dumped in the ocean each year, more than half comes from Asia?
Therefore we’ve removed plastic straws and single use plastic cutlery from all our Asia resorts, and replaced them with paper or reusable ones. Moreover, paper straws are only provided upon request as part of our “Straw on Request” policy, which has been in place for a few years. At Club Med Phuket alone, we’ve already seen a decrease of approximately 1,000 straws per day!
Our aim is to have removed all straws globally by 2019.
