Green Globe awarded to Caribbean Hotel

LOS ANGELES, CA - For the second year in a row, Green Globe has certified Hacienda Tres Ríos Resort, spa and nature park, recognizing their sustainable practices, conservation of the environment, support for local communities, and preservation of local culture.

Located in Riviera Maya, Hacienda Tres Ríos is an exclusive luxury resort focused on green travel. Hacienda Tres Ríos has received the highest grades from Green Globe Certification after an extensive review of the resort’s procedures, daily operations and green practices.

The Green Globe Certification was delivered today by Mr. Romeo Dominguez, representative of Green Globe America Latina to Mr. Romárico Arroyo, vice president of development and financing, Tres Ríos. At the ceremony, the Tres Rios sustainability team and its leader, Gabriel Santoyo, received an award from Green Globe recognizing the excellent work done to achieve the recertification.

“We not only received this certification for a consecutive year, but we did it with an incredible 95 percent. I don’t know of any other hotel – worldwide - that has achieved such a high grade and so soon after opening," said Mr. Gabriel Santoyo, chief environmental officer for Tres Ríos. Mr. Santoyo has been responsible for coordinating all sustainable management practices that have resulted in this exceptional score.

The vice president of development and financing, Tres Ríos, Mr. Romárico Arroyo, highlighted the hard work that has been invested in Hacienda Tres Ríos Resort to ensure this luxury resort follows strict environmental and quality standards in Mexico, as well as international sustainability standards.

“Tres Ríos started out as an ecological park, and we have been consistent in following our set guidelines and standards to protect the extraordinary beauty and diversity of the region. Our guests are able to reconnect with nature while they enjoy the Mexican hospitality and all the luxury we offer," said Mr. Arroyo.

Green Globe Certification CEO Guido Bauer said: “It is reassuring to see how a luxury beach resort can operate at such high standards of sustainable management. The Tres Rios sustainability team are experts in managing natural resources, including the care of 120 species of plants and 90 species of animals. This conservation management is further enhanced by their training programs for staff and the local community."

From its opening in November 2008, Hacienda Tres Ríos has positioned itself as a model for sustainable tourism in Mexico and abroad. The resort has been recognized by the highest Mexican environmental authorities, the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT). It has also been featured at tourism fairs around the world, with the sustainability team invited to share their knowledge in forums in London, Spain, and Berlin.

Besides its Green Globe certification, Hacienda Tres Ríos is recognized by international environmental organizations like UNEP, Sustainable Travel International, and Rainforest Alliance. Its environmental achievements have been acknowledged in the leading travel markets of Europe including Germany and London.
