Negril, Westmoreland - Sandals Negril resort has become the first hotel in the world to receive Green Globe's inaugural Platinum Award for consistently meeting and exceeding the organisation's standards for environmental preservation and community involvement.
Adam Stewart, chief executive officer of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), the Caribbean's leading resort chain, after accepting the award last week, used the occasion to announce two groundbreaking environmental projects launched in St Lucia and The Bahamas which, if successful, will be replicated in Jamaica.
"We are changing the way we run our hotels, to serve Mother Nature," Stewart said. "If Sandals can do this in the other islands, then we can carry these programmes to Jamaica and other hotels will eventually catch on."
