In all the Grand Palladium Resorts, we are committed to the efficient usage of natural resources, encouraging our staff, guests and suppliers to participate in our environmental policies. The use of biodegradable products, low energy lighting, recycling of solid residues and re-use of materials that can be utilized for other purposes are a fundamental part of our policy. In order to increase living standards in the area, we also promote the use of local products and foster eco-cultural actions and learning of sustainable development. The Grand Palladium Resorts in the Mayan Riviera have been awarded the Green Globe Award and the Kuoni Green Planet Award in recognition for their environmental policies. Amongst the environmentally friendly initiatives of the Resorts, there’s a water treatment plant with state-of-the-art reverse osmosis purification system which guarantees drinking quality of tab water. The offsite waste management includes waste separation and recycling (no waste water pumped into the ocean).
