Rosewood Tucker’s Point Awarded with Green Globe Re-Certification for 2016

Rosewood Tucker’s Point

Rosewood Tucker’s Point recently announced that they are very excited to be certified by Green Globe for 2016. Green Globe is a world leader in certification of sustainable travel tourism business, and this is not the first time they have recognized Rosewood Tucker’s Point’s efforts.

The resort was first recognized in 2012 and is the only member in Bermuda to get this certification. The process is extensive and required the properties to follow a collection of 337 compliance indicators that are applied to 41 individual criteria in areas including sustainable management, social/economic, culture heritage, and environmental. The standards focus on conserving resources, incorporating local cultures, and employee training regarding their roles in environmental, sociocultural, health, and safety practices.

The certification process is completed by having the resort undergo an independent on-site audit to make sure that all of their sustainability efforts have been inspected completely. To obtain this Green Globe certification, the resort has culminated more than $1 million in green capital investments. Rosewood Tucker’s Point has added a wastewater treatment plant, solar hot water plant, seawater reverse osmosis plant, and a Thermal solar hot water system.

“The majority of water throughout the property is produced by the Reverse Osmosis plant processing abstracted sea water and topped up by rain water caught on our roofs,” said Daniel Moore. “When discharged throughout the drainage system, including over 60 estate homes, wastewater is pumped to the wastewater treatment plant, is reclaimed and diverted to a two-million-gallon pond that is used to irrigate the golf course and croquet lawn,” explained Moore. “Additionally, Rosewood Tucker’s Point hotel, private residence clubs and wastewater treatment plant have the capability to be powered 100% independently during power outages from internal generation plants,” added Moore.

In North, Central and South America (including the Caribbean), there are currently 147 members of Green Globe and Rosewood Tucker’s Point is now in the Top Ten of these members. This is something the resort is extremely proud of.

When guests visit the resort, they can take an ecological tour, explore the caves, experience a guided kayaking tour, and swim in Bermuda’s largest underground lake. The resort’s ‘coffee chine’ has one of the only three remaining Bermuda Coffee Trees on the island. The kitchen uses herbs from the local gardens, and all the kitchen oil is collected and refined for alternative fuel all around the property.
