Outrigger Adopts Green Seal Certification in Mauritius

Outrigger anticipates its properties, including in Mauritius, being Green Seal certified before the end of 2022.

The 100% Green Seal designation will further solidify Outrigger’s allegiance to meeting the highest standards of protecting the health and environment for its guests and hosts.

For more than 30 years, the global non-profit Green Seal has helped to accelerate the market adoption of safer, more sustainable products and services.

Its certification is based on a rigorous, independent evaluation of hotel features, operations and processes.

To earn Green Seal certification, Outrigger’s hotels and resorts must demonstrate that they:

  • Protect human health and the environment by using housekeeping products that are free of toxic chemicals and are low on volatile organic compounds.
  • Have an environmental mission and purchasing policy.
  • Conserve water through water-efficient landscaping and ground-keeping measures and water-saving fixtures in guest rooms and public areas.
  • Preserve energy with 100% energy-efficient lighting in all guest rooms and public areas and with energy-efficient appliances and windows.
  • Reduce waste by minimising the use of disposable food service items and seeking out reusable packaging and shipping pallets.

Green Seal certification is unique in its focus not just on environmental protection but on health and indoor air quality.

Achieving certification will validate that Outrigger properties create a wellness environment where guests and hosts can stay safe from allergy and asthma triggers and reduce their exposure to toxic chemicals.

“As the Outrigger brand continues to grow and evolve, we are acutely conscious of the opportunity to make a positive impact for our planet,” said Jeff Wagoner, President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group.

“Green Seal is the gold standard of global health and environmental leadership. Outrigger is proud to implement science-based standards at our hotels and resorts which raise the bar on sustainability,” he said.

The 2021 Sustainable Travel Report by Booking.com affirmed that 83% of global travellers feel that sustainable travel is vital.

When Outrigger earns Green Seal Certification, it will show up as “Eco-Certified” in Google Travel hotel search results, making it easier for consumers to find and book a certified Outrigger property.

Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort is moving forward with Green Seal certification together with Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and Castaway Island, Fiji Resort.
