During the construction of Morena Resort in 2008, the requirements of "Green Key" were taken into account, so that a conscious choice was made for sustainable, environmentally friendly materials from fair trade cooperatives in the region, and all kinds of environmentally friendly techniques that are still used. For example, every apartment / villa has a solar water heater on the roof, which provides hot water all day long with only a few hours of sunshine. As a result of this approach, Morena has had a Green Key Gold Award since 2009. An on-side audit takes place every other year and an off-side audit in between. By affiliating with this approach from the start, comfort and durability have been going well together for years.
Since 2011, we have also been the proud holder of a Golden Travel Life Award, an International eco-label that encourages hotels and other tourist accommodations to promote social and ecological sustainability. The label helps companies to solve and tackle complex social and environmental issues in a sustainable way. Those who meet the clear, but strict Travel Life criteria may qualify for a bronze, silver or gold "award".
We have been a certified Green Globe member for 6 years in a row. We are the first eco resort on Curaçao with this certification.
The Green Globe environmental certificate is awarded to members who consciously conserve energy and water resources, reduce operational costs and make a positive contribution to the environment and local communities in which they operate.
