Pullman Maldives Maamutaa has announced its recent achievement of the Green Globe certification, marking another milestone in the resort’s commitment to sustainable practices and responsible hospitality.

Garnering an 85% score, above the average of 50%, this certification proves the resort’s continuous dedication to environmental stewardship and sustainable operations, notably the first time Pullman Maldives Maamutaa has received such recognition.

With a deep understanding of the fragile nature of the Maldivian environment and as a part of Accor’s sustainability initiatives, Pullman Maldives Maamutaa has implemented a wide range of sustainable endeavours throughout its operations.

One of the fundamental sustainability initiatives Pullman Maldives Maamutaa undertake is its comprehensive waste management program. The resort has implemented effective recycling and waste separation systems to reduce environmental impact.

Recognising the detrimental impact of plastic straws on our planet’s ecosystems, especially on marine life, Pullman Maldives successfully phased out plastic straws from its guests’ areas, achieving a significant milestone in its sustainability journey. This move aligns with Accor Group’s global efforts to combat plastic pollution and preserve natural resources for future generations.

By establishing its water bottling plant on-site, the resort is minimising plastic waste generated from imported bottled water and ensuring a continuous and reliable source of potable drinking water for its guests and employees in an eco-friendly manner.
Pullman Maldives Maamutaa also implemented energy-saving measures, including renewable energy sources. The resort’s solar panels, which power 15% of the overall resort’s electricity, were recorded as one of the best practices during the Green Globe evaluation.

A remarkable highlight in Pullman Maldives Maamutaa’s sustainability journey is its support for the local community through various social commitments. The resort vigorously engages in neighbourhood outreach programs, providing educational opportunities and sponsoring local schools and organisations. Pullman aims to contribute positively to the local community by promoting cultural awareness and economic development. On May 8 – 14, 2023, Pullman Maldives Maamutaa made a partnership exchange with a team of 18 local artisans and entertainers in the nearby GA. Vilingili to participate during ARTWeek by Pullman, an initiative that resulted in the top three best practices cited by Green Globe’s auditors.

On July 24 – 31, 2023, Pullman held its annual Aqua Week, a part of the Resort’s pillar week events. The Resort welcomed 10 students along with student council members from the Vilingili Educational Center for an educational immersion on marine environment. Led by Pullman’s marine biology expert Sara De Nicolo, the students delved into the underwater world, gaining insights into marine ecosystems and conservation. Engaging Kahoot games and a guided marine biology walk further enriched their understanding. The highlight was a surprise mermaid show at the Aqua Villa, leaving a lasting impression on the students and reinforcing Pullman’s commitment to combining education and hospitality in a luxury setting.

Green Globe is the global certification program for sustainable tourism and travel, recognising organisations that demonstrate a solid commitment to environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and sustainable operation practices. Pullman Maldives Maamutaa’s attainment of this prestigious certification underscores its dedication to preserving the Maldivian ecosystem while offering an exceptional guest experience.
