This move further cements Club Med's commitment to industry-wide environmental sustainability, marking a significant stride toward Net Positive Hospitality.

The Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, a global consortium representing over 50,000 properties and 7 million rooms, is eager to leverage Club Med's experience in sustainable development and innovation.

This partnership is a testament to Club Med's motto, "The Place to be happy is here; the moment to be happy is now. But it's also tomorrow," signifying its implication in creating harmonious and nature-immersed experiences for travellers.

For over 60 years, Club Med has championed sustainable practice with 70% of new or majorly renovated resorts since 2018 being built to globally recognised BREEAM standards. Most of Club Med Resorts are “Green Globe” certified, guaranteeing sustainable best-practices.

Club Med's "Bye Bye Plastic" programme, aimed at eliminating single-use plastic from its resorts, further underscores its dedication to environmental stewardship. In 2023, Club Med was named the best hospitality tourism company to work for by French economic magazine Capital, highlighting its commitment to employee well-being and development.

CEO of the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, Glenn Mandziuk, welcomes Club Med, stating, "Club Med's sustainable credentials are widely acknowledged in the industry, and their innovation and sustainable practices will undoubtedly contribute to our five-year strategy to realise Net Positive Hospitality."

Gregory Lanter, Chief Development, Construction & Property Officer, says, “as we embark on the acceleration of our CSR strategy, we are thrilled to join the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance. We believe that Club Med, born of a shared utopia that fulfilled the dreams of many, helped shape tourism in the 20th century. Therefore, we have a role to play in supporting tourism’s transition to a more contributory position. This aligns with the Alliance’s vision for Net Positive Hospitality. Joining the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance signifies our commitment to fostering sustainability in the hospitality sector. We look forward to actively contributing to the alliance's initiatives and engaging with industry colleagues to exchange insights and best practices.”
