April, 2023 – In an important milestone, Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea has achieved Bronze Benchmark status through EarthCheck, the world’s leading business advisory group specialising in sustainability and destination management for the travel and tourism industry.
The achievement of the Bronze Benchmarked certificate from EarthCheck demonstrates our commitment to preserving our beautiful city of Aqaba and to protecting our planet Earth. Our ongoing programs are designed to support the environment, people, and community, and we strive to enhance our reach to have a greater impact on the three pillars we are dedicated to preserving and maintaining. According to Mr. Victor Betro General Manager of the hotel, this achievement reflects our dedication to sustainable practices and responsible tourism.
To avoid catastrophic climate change, the world needs to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees centigrade above pre-industrial levels. Today, we are already at 1.1 °C and feeling the effects, meaning that the window for achieving our target and avoiding the most catastrophic impacts of climate change is rapidly closing. The very environmental values and cultural assets that attract visitors to destinations need to be protected and responsibly managed. The tourism industry and its operators are key to creating this change.
Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, said that Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability.
Mr. Moore said, “I would like to congratulate whole team at Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea on their achievement. Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea is a valued member of a global group of tourism operators who dare to make a difference.”
By working with EarthCheck, Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea has joined other industry leaders who are taking meaningful steps towards resolving some of the very real issues that face the planet.
