"The online EarthCheck Coordinator training has helped me very much in understanding the EarthCheck program and online software. The trainer used specific examples relevant to my Hotel which was very useful. The course was online and hence really convenient around my working hours. All in all, I feel more confident now in my new job of Sustainability Coordinator."

Lilian Hare , Emporium Hotels

"EarthCheck has been working with leading destinations and operators in Mexico since 2002. In 2014, FONATUR signed a partnership agreement with EarthCheck to work together on the development of world leading destinations. This partnership provides opportunities to work across Mexico to deliver tailor-made and market-driven sustainability solutions to operators, destinations, local Government and communities."

Agustín Alvarado Saravia , FONATUR

"We feel that EarthCheck is the most stringent and relevant benchmarking tool for us to first measure our performance then systematically take actions for improvement.  The robust system and the strength of the underlying research and approach from the STCRC have given us the confidence to entrust EarthCheck to provide us with accurate measures and benchmark intelligence."

Michael Kwee , Banyan Tree

"Sandals Resorts International partnered with EarthCheck in our search for the most technologically advanced, yet practical and realistic standard focusing on sustainable development for travel and tourism. We found the expertise and knowledge-base to be excellent with guidance from an accessible, technologically driven tool, as well as from the third-party assessments, which are routinely conducted for our hotels.

EarthCheck's sustainability tools have helped our hotel group to develop scientifically proven and critically defendable systems towards environmental preservation and conservation across our operations. We have seen the reduction in waste, energy and water, and increased employee awareness by meeting the criteria set forth in the EarthCheck Company Standards."

Wayne Cummings , Sandals Resorts International

"The EarthCheck coordinator workshop proved insightful and motivational to get the Green Team members on-board with the program's vision and objectives and build enthusiasm for our shared purpose, which is ensuring that we care for Randheli's environment in the best possible manner."

Vanessa Buchli Senties , Groupe LVMH

"Hero experience development is like a short-cut to success. There's nothing like a one-on-one session with an expert, who stands separate from your business. It gave us the confidence to push boundaries and take nightfall camp to another level. Yes, we'd have figured it out ourselves in time, but why waste years!"

Steve and Heidi Ross , nightfall camp

"EarthCheck is one of the leading management systems for responsible tourism and is a powerful platform to assist us in putting our sustainability vision into action. Our deeper partnership with EarthCheck fits well with our growth strategy and ensures Meliá is fully prepared to face the future as market leaders.”
