Green Globe announces certification for Punta Cana hotels, Royalton and Memories Splash for the third consecutive year with compliance scores of 87% and 86% respectively. Both hotels have made exceptional efforts to commit to environmental preservation and social development in the Dominican Republic.
The hotel resorts have their own sustainability policies aimed at adhering to the Dominican Republic’s environmental legislation through objectives such as reducing the impact their operations on the environment, conserving energy, reducing water consumption, recycling waste and involving employees and guests in their environmental efforts.
Just like their sister property CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts, which has also been recently re-certified, Royalton and Memories Splash utilise EcoLogic Solutions which exclusively supplies environmentally friendly cleaning products. The efficiency and effectiveness of these products also leads to reduced water and energy consumption.
Both hotel resorts have dedicated programs that engage the local communities. These efforts are a key factor in not only acting upon their corporate social responsibilities (CSR), but also displaying a genuine concern for the economic, human and social development of the community around of the property.
One of the most important CSR programs is the provision of assistance to elderly people living in Nuestra Señora del Carmen Nursing Home located at Higüey City one of the biggest cities in La Altagracia province.
Underpinning this assistance program is the donation of sheets, towels, slippers, blankets and medicine to the nursing home. In addition the hotels’ staff also dedicate time to visit Nuestra Señora del Carmen Nursing Home and offer personal assistance and companionship to residents of this home for the elderly.
