Sandals Resorts in St Lucia have scooped three trophies from the Ministry of Agriculture at the island´s first National Biodiversity Awards.

Sandals won the awards for Private Sector Support to Environmental Management, Access and Benefit Sharing in Bio Diversity Management and Bio Business for Environmental Management.

The awards were given in recognition of Sandals´ ongoing efforts to protect the environment –including energy conservation, irrigation systems, community development and local training courses. They were presented by St Lucia´s Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Ignatius Jean, to Mr. Kashmie Ali, Regional Director for Sandals in the Eastern Caribbean.

Among the environmental initiatives in practice at Sandals are special energy-saving equipment, such as low-flow showerheads and irrigation systems which use treated, recycled water, saving almost 200 million liters of water every year. Sandals also run environmental training courses for local schools and supports local eco-projects, such as beach clean-ups.

Sandals is the largest operator of luxury, ultra all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. It operates twelve Sandals Resorts for couples only and four Beaches Resorts for families with children, singles and couples.
