Green Globe Certified Resorts
BREEAM- Eco-certification of construction
Since 2018, Club Med has been committed to eco-certifying the construction of all of our new Resorts with BREEAM (or equivalent certification depending on the world region), one of the most recognised international and independent green building certifying bodies in the world which certifies the responsible design and construction of different types of buildings.
Additionally, in October 2017, Club Med's Construction and Sustainable Development teams worked with the BREEAM teams to create the first CLUB MED - BREEAM "Resort" eco-construction benchmark, the first standard specially for Resorts, which are specifically composed of several buildings spread over large spaces.
Green Globe certification- Eco-certifying our operations
Green Globe certification is one of the strictest international and independent certifications for sustainable tourism, and only awards establishments in the tourism sector who are committed to improving the environmental and social management of their business activity.
Eco-certification is granted by accredited bodies which ensures environmental and social best practices at those sites. More than 300 criteria are taken into account in the following areas:
- actions towards the economic and social development of the host region
- efficient water and energy management
- protection of biodiversity
- reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- protection of air quality and noise management
- training teams and raising G.M. awareness of the need to conserve resources
- preservation and showcasing of local cultural heritage
- social policy
80% of our Resorts are Green Globe certified, and we’re on our way to achieving our objective of 100% certification by 2021.
