Being a socially responsible company, Velas Resorts is committed to generating jobs within the regions at which the resorts have presence, as well as promoting the success of our employees. Together, we work to implement best practices to favor our planet and the society we take part of.

CLearn about the sustainable activities held by each hotel and resort.

 

 

ECOLOGICAL PRACTICES

  • Beach cleaning and conservation

    We keep the beach areas in optimal conditions for our guests' enjoyment. Every day, we collect trash, marine debris and foreign particles from the sand. Brigades of more than 30 employees are organized monthly, to thoroughly clean, sweep, dig and sift the sand for a completely impeccable and soft texture.

     

  • Waste separation

    Sorting of waste at our resorts is one of the milestones pursued by the internal environment-care campaigns. Specific containers are strategically located for cardboard, plastic, glass and aluminum disposal, and organic waste. We apply an adequate policy of burned cooking oils usage, which are delivered to a supplier for their final destination as biodegradable fuel. In all areas, including the common guest areas, there are organic and inorganic garbage cans available.

     

  • Supporting local recycling programs

    Independent companies are in charge of processing glass, plastic, metal, cardboard, and toxic material to handle their recycling, and proper disposal.

     

  • Organic waste

    Food waste in optimum conditions is donated to local farms, to be included in the diet of their animals.

     

  • Composting

    Raw food waste in good condition is stored and mixed with soil creating a natural fertilizer to be used in our gardens. To accelerate the process, we make use of composting worms.

     

  • Plastic use reduction

    In all of our properties 100% biodegradable avocado seed straws are offered, as well as glass containers and jars for liquids, as an alternative to help reduce the use of plastic bottles.

     

  • Green, public areas adoption and reforestation

    We have adopted stretches of traffic islands at the destinations we have presence, that are maintained in perfect conditions for visitors and residents to enjoy a clean city. In terms of reforestation, we highlight the more than 18,000 trees planted in Grand Velas Riviera Maya to protect the flora and fauna of the region, preserving the natural habitat of a total of 104 animal species and 53 types of plants and trees.

     

  • Sea turtle protection

    Many measures are taken to protect the sea turtles that we have the honor to receive at our beaches, to lay their eggs. A special camp takes care of the nest until safely hatch, and to release the hatchlings into the sea. During the summer months, the properties offer their guests the opportunity to witness this marvelous activity.

     

 

 

AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS

 

  • In-suite green practices

    As part of our actions for a sustainable use of water, each resort places a card invite guests to place it on the bed only when they wish their sheets and towels to be replaced. In addition, each suite's electronic key serves as a lock to turn the lights on or off when accessing or leaving the suite.
  • Earth Hour

    Employees and guests are invited to take part on the worldwide campaign "Earth Hour", which consists of turning off as many lights as possible for a whole hour, without affecting the operation of the hotel.

     

  • Recycling

    Periodical contests are held among collaborators to create original art pieces with recycled materials.

     

  • Green Activities

    The Kids' Clubs and Teens' Clubs encourage the use of recyclable material with fun and ingenious crafts that give the little ones smart ideas of how to reuse and follow recycling tips at home.

     

  • Tours of our properties

    Among the activities that can be enjoyed at our hotels, guests can participate on ecological tours to learn more about the flora and fauna that we have the privilege of hosting in our natural settings.

     

  • Continuous training

    The staff is periodically trained in environmental initiatives, to create a "green" awareness to be applied not only at the hotels, but also at home.

     

 

 

ENERGY

  • Power stations

    We make use of power stations, reducing our dependence on non-renewable resources.

     

  • Responsible use of water

    Reverse osmosis desalination plants make our operation self-sufficient. This means that for every liter of drinking water we are able to reuse 600 milliliters for general purposes, while 400 milliliters are returned to the ground to help preserve the environment. Wastewater treatment facilities allow us to water outdoor gardens and natural environments surrounding the properties.

     

  • Solar panels

    Water is preheated with solar energy, taking advantage of the good climate conditions of every region. Sunlight helps water to reach container tanks at a warm temperature, saving around 45% of gas.

     

  • Mindful laundry process

    The laundry facilities include a water treatment plant to efficiently filter soap water, which is then used for rinsing, saving 30% of the water utilized in the entire washing process.

     

  • Intelligent Air Conditioning

    We use state-of-the-art air conditioning equipment to reduce pollutant emissions and minimize energy consumption.

     

  • Recharging stations

    In Grand Velas Los Cabos there are three stations to recharge electric cars, two of them for Tesla vehicles and one more for other models.
