Our Core Sustainability Pillars

1. Environmental Conservation

Our commitment to the planet is reflected in our conscientious practices. We are focused on protecting local flora and fauna, minimizing waste, and adopting renewable energy sources. With the installation of solar panels for renewable energy, comprehensive recycling programs, and the operation of a treatment plant whose water is repurposed for irrigation, we are actively working to lessen our environmental impact.

2. Community Engagement and Benefits

The prosperity and well-being of local communities lie at the heart of our mission. By prioritizing local hiring—where 98% of our staff hail from the surrounding areas—and sourcing from local providers, we foster economic growth within our community. Moreover, our collaboration with community members to organize clean-up initiatives and educational programs in schools underscores our dedication to not only preserving the environment but also enriching the educational landscape. Through these concerted efforts, we aim to ensure that the advantages of tourism extend throughout the community, significantly improving the quality of life for all involved.

3. Sustainable Practices

Our approach to sustainability is comprehensive, incorporating practices that span from recycling and utilizing solar energy to adopting eco-friendly vehicle tags (eco marchamos) to offset our CO2 emissions. These efforts, alongside our reforestation programs, showcase our holistic commitment to environmental care. By integrating these green initiatives into the heart of our operations, we not only minimize our ecological footprint but also establish new benchmarks for sustainability in tourism. Our dedication to employing eco-friendly materials and pioneering waste reduction strategies underscores our unwavering commitment to leading with environmental responsibility.

4. Certifications and Achievements

Our dedication to sustainability is affirmed through prestigious recognitions, such as achieving a CST from the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT). This certification reflects our commitment to a sustainable operational model, acknowledging our efforts in environmental protection, community engagement, and sustainable management. Additionally, our Matapalo beach has been awarded a 5-star rating by the Blue Flag Ecological Program, a testament to meeting rigorous standards in environmental management, education, safety, and accessibility. These accolades not only validate our dedication to sustainability but also motivate us to uphold and advance our sustainable practices.

5. Aligning with Global Goals

Diamante Eco Adventure Park’s initiatives are closely aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), demonstrating our commitment to fostering a sustainable future. By hiring locally, we open up opportunities for people in our communities, ensuring they share in our growth. Our procurement strategy prioritizes local providers, supporting the economic health of the region. In pursuit of gender equality, our workforce composition stands at 65% male and 35% female, reflecting our dedication to creating a balanced and inclusive workplace. Our reliance on solar panels for clean energy showcases our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable energy solutions. Additionally, our educational programs for staff and community outreach efforts aim to enhance knowledge and opportunities, further aligning with the SDGs’ vision for quality education and reduced inequalities. Through these efforts, Diamante embodies the principles of sustainable communities, clean energy, and responsible consumption, contributing meaningfully to the global sustainability agenda.
