AMResorts, a subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group, continues to grow its commitment to sustainable practices with six resorts achieving Rainforest Alliance certification this year alone: Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana, Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa, Dreams Los Cabos Golf Resort & Spa, Now Larimar Punta Cana and Now Garden Punta Cana.
With these new certifications, the rapidly growing resort company has expanded its sustainability program by more than 30 percent, with a new total of 25 resorts certified in Mexico and the Caribbean. To qualify for the certification, resorts must demonstrate their commitment to conservation by minimizing their environmental footprint while also supporting local culture, workforce and the surrounding community.
As part of AMResorts’ involvement in the Rainforest Alliance program, the company has engaged its resorts in a variety of green initiatives. This includes celebrating environment-focused holidays such as Earth Hour and Earth Day, coordinating beach cleanups, sponsoring local schools and employing local vendors, limiting excess water by recycling on-property, and protecting local wildlife with activities like the turtle releases at Now Jade Riviera Cancun and Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun.
