EarthCheck Certification: A Transition to Environmental Policy for South Pacific Management Hotels

Published 05/22/2019

The environmental footprint left by the tourism sector is very important and has irreversible consequences for the planet.

It is therefore essential to make industry companies aware of the importance of protecting the environment.

We can happily note that hotels are becoming increasingly involved in eco-friendly approaches.

Aware of the various issues, South Pacific Management Group attaches great importance to the adoption of a sustainable development policy.

The group has decided to accompany Manava Suite Resort Tahiti and Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea in their environmental initiatives.

According to Jean-Marc Vermorel, Director of Operations: “The certification will help our hotels to find new solutions to be even more eco-responsible. ” In its sustainable development approach, South Pacific Management has chosen EarthCheck certification, an environmental benchmarking and certification system for the tourism sector. This certification, created in Australia in 2009, allows companies to evaluate the impact of their activities on the environment, and to encourage them to improve their economic, social and sustainable performance.

This certification is recognized worldwide because it has more than 1,200 tourism organizations in more than 65 countries.

Manava Hotels Undergoing EarthCheck Certification …

The hotels Manava Suite Resort Tahiti and Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea are thus in the process of transitioning to an environmental policy in order to obtain the EarthCheck label and guarantee their customers their commitment to sustainable development. As a result, hotels are putting in place measures to monitor the environmental impact of their activities (use of resources, waste production, engagement with local communities, etc.).

South Pacific Management: a player committed to sustainable development

South Pacific Management is committed in 2019 to an international environmental certification program called EarthCheck. The banner aims to certify the two Manava hotels by 2020. The group is also ready to support any other establishment, locally or internationally, in environmental certification projects.
