Green Globe today announced certification of Club Med Saint-Moritz Roi Soleil in southeast Switzerland. This resort, located in the Engadine valley in the Swiss Alps, is the 26th Club Med Village to receive certification for its sustainability achievements.

Club Med Saint-Moritz uses 100 percent renewable energy, and features equipment that optimizes heating, ventilation, and lights. To optimize water management, the village installed water regulators in taps and dishwashers with granule metering units. The resort also sorts waste, separating glass, packaging, paper, wood, cooking oil, batteries, light bulbs, and ink cartridges, as well as dangerous waste.

Doris Fiol, Green Globe Coordinator at Club Med Saint-Moritz, said: “We are proud to receive the renowned Green Globe Certificate as this shows the commitment and ambition of our staff to implement sound sustainability practices. Every single team member has taken on the challenge of being responsible for ecologically and socially-sustainable management and turned our green practices into a key subject in interactions with our guests. Health, nature, innovation, local employment, and dialogue are some of the key words used in conversations with customers.”
