Beaches Negril EarthCheck Platinum certified

Beaches Negril Resort & Spa has been recognized for its environmental efforts by EarthCheck, a leading certification and benchmarking organization, which has rewarded the resort with a Platinum level certification. As a result of having consistently demonstrated its commitment to host communities and high standards of environmental care over a period of 10 consecutive years, Beaches Negril has joined an elite number of organizations around the world in achieving the highest level of EarthCheck certification. “This achievement highlights the long term commitment that Sandals Resorts has shown to the communities and environment of the Caribbean,”said EarthCheck CEO Stewart Moore. “They’re well ahead of most governments and industry players globally as a result of their efforts, and serve as a leader in the field of sustainable practices.”Beaches Negril chose meaningful approaches to sustainable tourism, involving the use of EarthCheck’s science-based software and tools to measure the effectiveness of its environmental and corporate social responsibility practices over the past decade. In July of 2011, Sandals Resorts International underlined its sustainability credentials by launching a new environmental management program entitled, Sandals Earthguard powered by EarthCheck. “Sandals Earthguard allows us to take practical, meaningful action to provide quality vacation experiences for our guests, while we work to minimize the environmental and social impacts of our operations,”said Adam Stewart, CEO of Sandals Resorts International. “This is an incredible achievement for our company and we look forward to continuing to expand our environmental efforts for years to come.”Beaches Negril now becomes the third resort in the Sandals portfolio to be certified Platinum, joining Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa and Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort.
