    Chaa Creek is fully committed to the implementation and utilisation of environmentally sound and sustainable Best Management Practices. All aspects of our operations and development adhere to these globally accepted methods. We were the first lodge in Belize to have been environmentally certified by the internationally recognized “Green Globe” program, and work within a memorandum of understanding with the Rainforest Alliance and their in-country counterpart, Program for Belize, to assist and promote tourism industry Best Management Practices throughout Belize. Upon arrival guests receive an orientation by our reception staff explaining Chaa Creek environmental policies as well as suggestions to encourage each guest to participate in our conservation efforts. Environmental awareness is then gently reinforced through written conservation messages in each guest room and through interaction with our staff throughout the stay, and our Natural History Centre houses numerous informative conservation exhibits and displays. We believe that by demonstrating our own environmental and social practices we assist guests in better understanding the many environmental, social and economic benefits that can be achieved when development is tempered with sensible environmental and social practices.

                The movie we shot in our workplace' backyard this spring. === The height of Triglav, Slovenian highest mountain, symbolically signifies a unique, protective and familiar path. 2864 is an ecological, sustainable resort. Apart from the hotel, congress center, wellness, sauna park and aquapark with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, it has already started the project of building an eco ski-resort and bike park with the longest ski pistes in Slovenia. The vision of Bohinj ECO resort shares its founding virtues with the four lionhearted men, who first conquered Triglav summit: Bravery - since paving new paths is an uncertain venture, Persistence - the road to success involves pits and falls, Nature conservation - basic surviving drive of mankind and Authenticity - only true passion creates lasting headway. The secret behind 2864's Story does not end high up in the mountain kingdom. Path is crucial. Inspired by nature's power to grow and create, we tread wisely in Bohinj: In the interest of keeping lasting memories we create transient trails in nature.

                      Snæfellsnes er fyrsta landsvæðið í Evrópu sem fær umhverfisvottun Green Globe-samtakanna og það fjórða í heiminum. Kristinn Jónasson bæjarstjóri í Snæfellsbæ segir undirbúningsferlið hafi krafist mikillar vinnu, enda sveitarfélögunum settar strangar kröfur til að fá slíka alþjóðlega vottun. »Þegar við vorum að stíga fyrstu skrefin í þessari vinnu var gert hálfgert grín að okkur, vísur á þorrablótum og svo framvegis. Í dag er staðan allt önnur. Nú gera íbúarnir kröfur til sveitarfélaga hérna á Snæfellsnesi um að þau standi sig vel í umhverfismálum. Grænfáninn blaktir við hún í grunnskólum og leikskólum á svæðinu, en til að fá að flagga honum þarf að uppfylla ýmsar kröfur í umhverfismálum. Tvær hafnir á svæðinu hafa fengið Bláfánann, sem er alþjóðlegt umhverfismerki sem hefur þann tilgang að stuðla að verndun umhverfis hafna", segir Kristinn. Meira á www.graennapril.is
