Recent research showed that people around the world are becoming more aware of their living environment and their surrounding air quality. No longer can people take it for granted that we can pollute the world in any which way desire without any subsequent environmental consequences. Hotel PURE has recently been approached by a number of hotels in Costa Rica and hotels in Central America that are GREEN certified, expressing their interests to join the Hotel PURE brands.
After visits and evaluating some of these hotels, the Company finds it necessary to introduce a new brand call the Hotel PURE GREEN aimed at accommodating hotels that are GREEN certified or Certification for Sustainable Tourism (CST), by the government of Costa Rica and other countries in the region.
In order to obtain this certification, the hotel locations will have to pass a list of strict compliance which involves avoid emissions, harmful products and pollution, efficiently handles waste that it produces, uses natural, biodegradable, and recyclable products, has a water and electrical energy conservation program among other protocols that will make the hotels more environmental friendly. CST has also been acknowledged by the World Tourism Organization as "one of the programs that is rethinking how tourism is done."
Ken Chua, President of Oriens comments, "enough damages have been done to our planet through all forms of methods that include manufacturers' pollutions, automobile emission, power generating plants emission and other harmful pollutions that we cannot reverse, but we certainly can look to the future and start to conserve what we have today by cutting back as much pollutions as possible. That is the reason we fully endorse this program and will try our very best to promote these beautiful Hotel PURE GREEN locations to our customers looking to travel to Costa Rica in the near future."
