TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 04, 2015) - Blue Diamond Resorts' all inclusive hotels in the Dominican Republic, CHIC Punta Cana, Royalton Punta Cana and Memories Splash, have each been recognized by the Dominican Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources for their implementation of sustainable environmental practices, which have helped further Ministry's initiatives in waste reduction.

"Sustainable methods are central to the way we operate each resort," said Jordi Pelfort, Managing Director, Blue Diamond Resorts. "As many of our properties are now acknowledged for environmental successes, even the most conscientious traveler can find a vacation experience to enjoy."

Each year, the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources rewards efforts in solid waste management and recycling through the "Producción Más Limpia" or "Cleaner Production" environmental strategy. Its goal is to provide recognition to organizations that successfully implement waste management efficiencies that help the environment and the greater community.

This rapidly expanding hotel chain is already the recipient of numerous environmental titles from global organizations, such as the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program, with Memories Splash Punta Cana at the Gold Level of sustainability, and Royalton Punta Cana as well as CHIC Punta Cana each at the Silver Level. One Link Global and Green Globe also accredited sustainable practices at Royalton White Sands, Memories Grand Bahama, Royalton Punta Cana, Memories Splash Punta Cana, and CHIC Punta Cana. Responsible stewardship by Blue Diamond Resorts include extensive recycling, use of solar energy, a dedicated on-site compost area, donating surplus food peels to local farmers, updating light bulbs to energy saving LED lights, using less paper and corresponding digitally, and more. Each Blue Diamond Resort property will continue to evolve and implement additional conservation programs.
