ORGANIC VERMICOMPOST

Organic waste collected from the numerous kitchens of Palace Resorts properties is recycled to produce organic compost to nourish gardens at the resorts and supply the organic nursery garden with soil rich in nutrients.

WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

By correctly treating all forms of waste produced at our resorts, we are able to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Ongoing training, workshops, and waste-management audits are carried out to ensure the program is implemented at all levels and establish a culture of separation and recycling.

Our unique waste management program is authorized by the Environmental Department for the State of Quintana Roo. Each resort has specific chambers of organic, inorganic, and recyclable waste.

ORGANIC BIODIESEL

Used oil is collected from the kitchens at Palace Resorts properties and taken to a special onsite plant. Here, it is recycled into organic biodiesel to power all the tractors necessary for beach-cleaning purposes.

ORGANIC NURSERY GARDEN

Affectionately known as “Kilometer Zero”, our organic nursery garden is the point of departure for plant-to-table microgreens to the kitchens of Palace Resorts; and the point of arrival for vermicompost made from recycled organic waste collected from such kitchens.

ENERGY AND WATER SAVING PROGRAM

 
 


Water-saving technology is installed to efficiently control the amount of water used in toilets, showers, and wash basins, reducing waste significantly.


Our onsite water treatment plant enables us to recycle used water and use it efficiently to irrigate our green areas & golf course.


In-room sensors automatically de-activate AC when balcony doors open & switch off lights when there is no movement for long periods, controlled by smartcards.


Solar panels on our distribution center & Moon Palace Arena enable us to supply these buildings with lighting.

PREVENTING EROSION & SARGASSUM

Our system aims to prevent beach erosion and sargassum without polluting or harming the coastal environment.

Beaches swept

Sand containing seagrass is removed using special machinery powered by biodiesel.

Sand & sargassum separated

Sand is sifted in a special plant and returned to the beach to prevent erosion.

Sargassum Barrier

Sand is sifted in a special plant and returned to the beach to prevent erosion.

Beach reforestation

Native species of vegetation grown in the nursery are transferred to sand dunes to mitigate erosion.
