Recycling waste when the facilities exist
Waste management is part of the environmental impact of a Resort. Club Med introduces recycling systems whenever possible, when the appropriate infrastructure exists in the host country. The Club also strives to limit the production of waste, such as plastic bottles, part of a policy introduced in 2009. A study revealing the quantity of waste produced at Opio in 2006 resulted in concrete measures being introduced, and contributed to the Resort's gaining its Eco certification.
