ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY AT PANAMA PORTFOLIO

Climate change is undeniable. Earth’s resources will not last forever. And your home on this planet must be a healthy and safe environment for you and your loved ones.

We don’t question these realities — we challenge ourselves by asking how we can help.

We do this by creating sustainable luxury living environments which make everyone happy.

In Panama we are the only company developing luxury resorts and communities with this large amount of care for the environment.

“We see sustainability as the simultaneous pursuit of human health and happiness, environmental quality, and economic well-being for current and future generations.”

ALL PROJECTS OF PANAMA PORTFOLIO USE 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY 

We see sustainability as the simultaneous pursuit of human health and happiness, environmental quality, and economic well-being for current and future generations.

Our interpretation of sustainability conveys itself into our daily work, we always try to minimize the environmental impact of our operations, while actively being conducive to the local community. Through our sustainability activities and initiatives, we aim to improve the lives of the people that live at the project and the neighbours of the project.

PRESERVING THE CHARACTER OF THE ENVIRONMENT BY SUSTAINABLE PROJECT DESIGN

We believe harmony with nature and local community are the key to the exclusivity of our projects. This is why we do extensive nature studies for months before designing a project, so we are able to develop plans that least harm the environment.

“We believe harmony with nature and local community are the key to the exclusivity of our projects.”

We are focused on designing without mitigating the natural habitat of animals. By walking through the project we understand the environment and get knowledge about how to design in the most sustainable manner.

PRESERVING AND PLANTING TREES TO CREATE A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT

By planting at least 20% more trees than there were before, we preserve and even expand the flora & fauna in our projects. Plants and trees are creating a healthy environment in our projects by producing oxygen and absorbing CO2 and other pollutants. The air quality in various of our projects has been measured over 5x less pollution than in the Panama City.

“Forestation plays an important role in Coco Beach, our beach living community.”

Forestation plays an important role in Coco Beach, our beach living community. The area is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. and unique wildlife, like the sloth and various types of hummingbirds. Coco Beach has been designed to have a minimal impact on the environment and to keep nature and wildlife intact as much as possible. Besides we are planting over 3000 grown trees after completion of the construction to guarantee a wonderful green living community in harmony with nature.

ON ALL OUR PROJECTS WE ACTIVELY REDUCE, SEPARATE AND RECYCLE WASTE

We believe reuse of materials and minimal disturbance preserve the character of the environment. We avoid wasting any materials or energy while developing a community or producing any other desired result. Therefore we also stimulate the clients of our projects to separate their waste by supplying separated waste containers and collecting the waste separately as well.

“We believe reuse of materials and minimal disturbance preserve the character of the environment.”

The organic waste is turned into compost for the tree nursery and a large portion of the plastic is being recycled locally and molted into new products. Furthermore we use locally produced materials as much as possible. In this way we reduce the supply of materials, which is conducive for reducing our carbon footprint.

EDUCATING & COLLABORATING WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO STIMULATE LOCAL GROWTH

By thinking logical and constantly making considerations about the best balance between people, environment and financial benefits, we create a long-term vision for our actions.

Through our sustainability activities, we aim to improve the lives of our neighbours and help them realize a vibrant future.

We stimulate the local economy by making use of local supplies and services while simultaneously creating new jobs for local people who live around the projects. They contribute to accomplish these sustainable projects in their neighbourhood.
