El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels by Karisma receives the Green Globe certification
100% sustainable Resorts in Riviera Maya
Tourism has become a popular global leisure activity. It’s a major source of income for many countries –particularly Mexico–, and affects the economy of both the source and host countries. Since it’s an industry made up of several service providers, it’s probable the economic activity generates less environmental impact, in comparison to other industries; nonetheless it represents an activity that’s always working toward the introduction of actions to protect and preserve the environment.
The Mexican Caribbean is surrounded by exuberant beauty: its beaches, cenotes, jungle, lagoons and coral reef, have been visited by thousands of people from all around the world, natural attractions that depend on the care and protection of the environment.
Sustainability makes reference to the efficient and rational administration of resources, in order to improve the wellbeing of the current population without compromising the quality of life of future generations. Such actions are gaining great popularity and are a practical must for tourist service provider; however, to comply with all the specifications required by term, it takes years of dedication and effort, as well as research, development and the introduction of new techniques and procedures.

How do they manage this? By reusing consumables, classifying trash, using environmentally friendly materials, reforesting the beaches, saving electric energy in the rooms and building a huge artificial reef whose purpose is to reduce the erosion of the sandy areas.
Such actions have been recognized by Green Globe, the global certification for sustainable tourism. Members save energy and water resources, reduce operational costs, positively contribute to local communities and their environment. Mr. Guido Bauer, CEO of Green Globe, in representation of the company, has granted the hotel chain El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels by Karisma, the Green Globe Sustainable Leader Award.
