to Minimize Impact on the Environment
|ORANJESTAD, Aruba (Sept. 28, 2004) – Remaining on its “green” path,
La Cabana All Suite Beach Resort & Casino in Aruba has instituted a
variety of sustainable practices in the past year to further reduce its
impact on the environment.
“We recognize the necessity of implementing environmentally-sound practices in order to protect the precious resource of our island,” said Lou Roelofsen, La Cabana’s general manager. “Our extremely active and enthusiastic on-property ‘Green Team’ constantly researches methods so La Cabana can remain on the cutting-edge of sustainable technologies and minimize its impact on the environment – as well as save money in the process,” he added.
Recent La Cabana environmental projects include the following:
Future projects on the agenda include the implementation of a new energy audit for the entire property in order to develop new strategies; replacement of reciprocating chillers with a more efficient model; new temperatures controls in all guest rooms; and implementation of a building automation system for better management of actual resources (energy, fire alarm, power monitoring, illumination, etc.).
This past spring, La Cabana achieved the impressive Green Globe 21 Certification,
for the second consecutive year, in recognition of its efforts towards
becoming environmentally friendly. La Cabana is the largest resort
in the Caribbean to be Green Globe certified.
