On October 21, 2019, Green Key was delighted to announce that the Torarica Group was the first company with a Green Key awarded establishment in Suriname and South America. All three properties of the Group were awarded with the Green Key certificate. Green Key is the international hallmark for sustainable companies in the recreation and leisure industry.
In total there are 13 criteria’s to which the Torarica Group complies. Aside from using eco-friendly takeaway packaging (Styrofoam free) and offering biodegradable eco-friendly straws we also have recycling bins to collect plastic waste, all over our properties. All leftovers such as potatoes, vegetables, food and bread, are donated to the Paramaribo zoo on a daily basis. The overall energy and water consumption was reduced with 10%, all menus are now digitalized through QR codes. We also managed to recycle 47% of all used oils and 10.936 kilograms of plastic. Reusing printed paper, recycling used printer cartridges, paperless guests experience surveys, yes, we do it all.
We will pursue knowledge and practices that can lead to more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions, which can help protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for current and future generations without sacrificing comfort and quality for our guests. We go a step further than normal laws and regulations require.
We cannot imagine a world without Green! All steps matter! Go Green! Go Green Key! Caring for our environment is a structural part of our business objectives.” says the Torarica Group’s General Manager, Dave Boucke
