Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has been named the National Winner of the Energy Globe Award Aruba. Today’s announcement also celebrates World Environment Day.
The Energy Globe Award is one of today’s most prestigious environmental accolades. The platform’s goal is to present successful sustainable projects to a broad audience. Many of the solutions can be implemented in businesses and residential homes, alike.
The resort’s submission, “The Path to Carbon Neutrality,” highlights the culmination of its efforts to provide a vacation that is as sustainable as it is memorable. The award-winning submission is one of more than 2000 received from 180 countries. It will now compete for an International Energy Globe Award and the ultimate World Energy Globe Award set to be announced later this year.
As Bucuti & Tara continues its journey toward offsetting environmental impacts, its other most recent news reveals how a vacation to the eco-friendly resort is better for the planet. Owner/CEO and noted environmentalist Ewald Biemans was a panelist at the United Nation’s International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development Forum in Washington D.C. last September. He shared that vacationing at the Aruba resort left a lower carbon footprint than even staying home. Sparking the crowd’s interest, Bucuti & Tara recently shared its research prepared with its on-staff sustainability manager. The results revealed that a week-long Bucuti & Tara vacation including air travel is better for the environment than an equivalent drive vacation – actually 68% better.
