Kurumba Maldives has achieved Green Growth 2050 Gold Certification with a compliance score of 80.4%.
“This accomplishment represents a significant leap forward from the resort’s previous Silver Certification, solidifying its commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible tourism,” the resort said.
The Green Growth 2050 Global Standard is based on a range of internationally recognised environmental and hotel industry sustainability standards, and is recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council; the international benchmark in sustainable tourism assessment.
Green Growth 2050 was designed to meet the needs of tourism and travel businesses seeking today’s solutions to the issues driving social, cultural, and environmental change. It includes over 400 industry-based sustainability indicators making it the most comprehensive travel and tourism-based standard available.
“Overall sustainability and corporate social responsibility should be at the forefront of every single aspect of how we operate. We live in a very delicate environment, and it is up to each one of us to do our part and ensure the longevity of our little piece of paradise. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, we remain fully dedicated to this principle and will continue to push forward in all our sustainability measures,” said Andrew Jansson, General Manger of Kurumba Maldives.
