Eco-certification of the construction of the Resort is underway with BREEAM*. This international and independent eco-construction certification is among the most demanding and well-regarded in the world. Club Med is also seeking Green Globe certification** for the Resort’s day-to-day management.
This demanding certification is reviewed every year, and nearly 90% of Club Med Resorts are already Green Globe-certified.
Club Med’s commitment is also reflected in its Happy to Care program, which includes measures in place to support sustainable development. The Seychelles Resort is equipped with a smart system to fine-tune energy consumption, as well as nurseries so that plants can be grown on site. Wastewater is treated and recycled to water the gardens. Club Med has also removed all single-use disposable plastic from Club Med Seychelles bars, restaurants, and rooms. Under the "Bye Bye Plastics" program, it aims to remove all such plastic from all its Resorts worldwide by 2022. The glass bottles of water, provided for guests in the Resort’s rooms and some common areas, are also bottled on-site to limit waste production and transport.
A project run in collaboration with the Seychelles Agricultural Agency (SAA) is underway to support local production and boost the supply of fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables to the Resort.
