ORANJESTAD, ARUBA - (October 13, 2016) - The Divi & Tamarijn Aruba properties continue to stand out as premier resorts as 2016 is the fourth consecutive year they have earned Silver certification from Earthcheck, the world's leading certifier of sustainable travel and tourism operators.
"We are extremely proud to have our two all-inclusive properties in Aruba continue to receive this prestigious certification from Earthcheck, as it demonstrates our company's commitment to being a leader in sustainable development," commented Alex Nieuwmeyer, Managing Director, Divi Resorts Aruba. "It is mutually beneficial to the environment and to us that we continue to comply with sustainability principles and best practices."
In order to become Silver certified, the properties were required to meet measurable standards for key environmental indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, community commitment, and others. Having met these standards is the result of hard work and dedication of the properties' staff and management team. After five consecutive years of achieving this status, the properties will qualify for Gold status.
