Breezes Runaway Bay has become SuperClubs’ second resort to earn the Green Globe 21 certification by World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). The award recognizes Breezes’ commitment to ecologically sound practices and environmental awareness along with regional conservation measures that have been adopted by senior management and promoted by trained staff.
“We are thrilled with Breezes Runaway Bay’s success following upon Grand Lido Negril, our first Green Globe resort,” said Zein Nakash, SuperClubs’ vice president of marketing and environmental affairs.
“We are one of the largest hoteliers in Jamaica and it is our personal responsibility to ensure that we do our part in preserving the island’s natural beauty and attractions. We will continue to practice sustainable tourism and follow eco-friendly measures throughout each of our resorts”.
The Green Globe 21 marks the second time Breezes Runaway Bay has been commended by the World Travel and Tourism Council for its overall commitment to preserving the environment.
The resort’s first “green” award followed a series of initiatives in 2000, including the creation of artificial reefs by sinking Cessna and DC-3 aircrafts in order to replenish the marine habitat off the coast of Runaway Bay. This initiative also earned the resort the Gold Palm Resort Certification by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors’ (PADI), which cited the resort for its environmental awareness, attention to diver safety and commitment to creating memorable dive experiences for guests.
Breezes Runaway Bay guests can enjoy complimentary wreck diving as part of their Super-Inclusive package.
