Do your part for the environment at a spectacular resort in the Caribbean. Iberostar Group has made a long-term commitment to environmental protection and is taking dramatic steps toward their ambitious goals. All Iberostar hotels and resorts have been single-use plastic free since 2020 and intend to be carbon neutral by 2030. Waste-reduction practices to prevent pollution at its source are being implemented in addition to re-use and recycling systems already underway.
Local communities are participating in the company’s coastal health awareness and education programs with coral nurseries in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Iberostar also contributes to coastal protection and restoration programs for seagrasses, mangroves and other ecosystems which then benefit biodiversity and conservation opportunities.
Dining at Iberostar just got a lot fresher. The “Wave of Change” initiative is bringing sustainable fish and seafood to the table by working with suppliers to feature local and seasonal items. Throughout the supply chain, the group is minimizing the use of plastics while transitioning to biodegradable materials when possible.
Restaurants in Mexico resorts are now serving 100% of seafood from responsible sources. Gourmet dining paired with sustainable ingredients makes for a delicious combination.
