Behind the Scenes: Diamante Eco Adventure Park’s Commitment to Sustainability
At Diamante Eco Adventure Park, our commitment to adventure goes hand in hand with our dedication to sustainability.
We see environmental preservation not just as a duty, but as an integral part of our identity. From supporting the local community to inspiring our visitors, we are committed to promoting sustainable practices for a brighter and greener future.
Come, join us behind the scenes and discover how Diamante is leading the way towards a sustainable tomorrow.
- Supporting the Local Community:
At the heart of our commitment to sustainability is the dedication to the local community. We take pride in hiring local talent, with 98% of our staff being Costa Ricans. By providing employment opportunities to our fellow community members, we contribute to the local economy and empower the people around us.
- Embracing Local Suppliers:
To reduce our carbon footprint and promote local businesses, we prioritize buying most of our supplies from nearby sources. By supporting local suppliers, we not only ensure fresher products but also strengthen the local economy and reduce transportation-related emissions.
- Preserving Natural Resources:
Water and electricity are precious resources, especially in a region as ecologically diverse as Costa Rica. We are committed to reducing our consumption through water and electricity saving programs. By implementing efficient practices, we aim to minimize our impact on the environment and inspire others to follow suit.
- Responsible Waste Management:
We understand the importance of responsible waste management in safeguarding the environment. At Diamante, we take great care in handling the waste we produce. Our “Diamante Recicla” program follows the principles of the 7 R’s: Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot.
By embracing these principles, we strive to minimize waste generation and promote a circular economy.
- Engaging our Customers and Staff:
Sustainability is a collective effort, and we believe in empowering our customers and staff to be active participants in conservation. We offer opportunities for them to engage in Diamante’s conservation and community programs. By implementing efficient practices, we aim to minimize our environmental impact and inspire others to do the same.
- Continuous Staff Training:
We recognize that knowledge is the key to driving change. To ensure that our staff is well-equipped to implement sustainable practices, we provide continuous training. Through these efforts, we foster a culture of sustainability that permeates all aspects of our operations.
- Nurturing Environmental Education:
Diamante Eco Adventure Park understands the value of environmental education in creating a sustainable future. Through our “Diamante Educa” program, we work closely with local schools to raise awareness about conservation and inspire the next generation of eco-conscious leaders.
- Recognitions and Certifications:
Our dedication to sustainability has earned us accolades, including the prestigious Tourism Sustainability Certificate (CST) – 3 leaves. Additionally, for seven consecutive years, we have proudly achieved 5 stars in the Blue Flag Ecological Program for our beach, a testament to our commitment to maintaining pristine coastal environments.
- Offsetting Carbon Emissions:
Transportation is an essential part of our operations, but we understand its environmental impact. As a responsible eco-park, we take responsibility for our carbon emissions by paying “Eco Marchamos” for carbon offsetting. By investing in “carbon offset” programs, we strive to mitigate our ecological footprint.
- Integrating Sustainability into Business Practices:
Sustainability is not an add-on for us; it is an integral part of our daily business practices. We incorporate conservation, protection, and community support into everything we do, ensuring that our commitment to sustainability is unwavering.
At Diamante Eco Adventure Park, sustainability is our way of life. We are dedicated to preserving Costa Rica’s natural treasures for future generations. By leading with local practices and responsible tourism, we inspire our visitors to become sustainability advocates.
Together, we can make a lasting impact and pave the way for a greener, more sustainable world.
