THIS DOESN’T SUCK // What Club Med is doing tocreate a more sustainable future

September 26, 2018 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email


Sustainability is so much more than a recent buzzword – especially within tourism, where decisions we make every day can have a drastic effect on our environment.

With the latest actions we’ve taken, such as removing all plastic straws in our Asian resorts now and globally by 2019, we thought this would also be the perfect time to tell you about what else we’ve been to doing to be more sustainable at Club Med.

This is a constant work in progress but today we’re proud to share the hard work our teams have been doing for more than 60 years around the world so our resorts are more sustainable and the surrounding environment is protected.

You can also be assured that when choosing Club Med for your next holiday, you are also choosing to stay in a resort that acts in a responsible and sustainable way. More than that, we’re also happy to include you in those actions so stay tuned on how you can help us contribute with your ideas to move #ForwardTogether with a competition coming up!
Thanks for taking the time to read and discover more about our actions below, Your Club Med Team
