Coral Hotels is the first hotel chain in the Canary Islands to start the journey to become a sustainable Biosphere chain. The hotel company has started the procedures to obtain this important seal that lays its foundations in the commitment to sustainability, which is part of the commitment to the destination Tenerife that also begins the Biosphere Destination process.
The Biosphere certification is granted by the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI), an organization that was born with a MoU with UNESCO, and to obtain it requires the fulfillment of a series of objectives divided into 3 main areas: environment and climate change, governance and economy, and culture and social welfare.
This methodology is the translation to tourism of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda (17SDG), within the framework of the work carried out with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, and serve as a guide for the sector to design products and services typical of a new model of non-aggressive tourism, satisfying the current needs of customers and users, without compromising future generations.
Obtaining the Biosphere certificate will be a further step in Coral Hotels' commitment to sustainable development, with respect for the environment, and with the Canarian population. In this sense, the chain has already taken important measures aimed at promoting responsible tourism, among which is the use of 100% renewable energy in all its establishments.
