Mexican resort gets top sustainable marks




For the second year in a row, Green Globe has certified Hacienda Tres Ríos Resort, spa and nature park, recognising its 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. It has received the highest grades from Green Globe Certification after an extensive review of the resort’s procedures, daily operations and green practices.

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

The vice president of development and financing at Tres Ríos, Romárico Arroyo, highlighted the hard work that has been invested in the Resort to ensure this it 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," he said.

Commenting on the resort’s achievement, Green Globe Certification chief executive Guido Bauer said: “It is reassuring to see how a luxury beach resort can operate at such high standards of sustainable management. The Tres Ríos 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."

Besides its Green Globe certification, Hacienda Tres Ríos is recognised by international environmental organizations, such as UNEP, Sustainable Travel International and the Rainforest Alliance.
