His Excellency Mr. Heinz Walker-Nederkoorn, Swiss Ambassador to the Netherlands, visited the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort to learn about the organization’s early adoption of sustainable business practices, which led to global recognition by the United Nations as the Caribbean’s first certified Carbon Neutral resort.
During a brief visit to Aruba, the Ambassador took the time to take an in-depth tour of the resort’s technological investments and eco-certification-based management structure, as well as learn about the hotel’s renowned achievements in sustainability. Resort Manager Rik van der Berg and Sustainability Manager Jeroen van Dasselaar gave the tour, with Crescenzia Biemans presenting the milestone achievements inspired by the tireless efforts of founder and owner, Ewald Biemans since opening in 1987.
Ambassador Walker-Nederkoorn shared after the visit: “I would like to thank you and your team for presenting what I would call a role model of sustainable hospitality in a unique natural and esthetic setting. Your presentation was not only very educational and inspiring but also a convincing statement of a young businesswoman who stands on the shoulders of her pioneering grandfather, ready to continue and further develop his heritage.”
