De Palm Corporation Environmental & Social Sustainability Policy
The De Palm Group is a collection of companies that offer a range of luxury transportation and entertainment options.
This includes luxury motor coaches and express vans for transportation and island sightseeing tours, a luxury catamaran for day and evening sailing/snorkeling trips, Marrua off-road vehicles and UTV’s for off-road tours, a submarine, a semi-submarine called the SeaWorld Explorer which is a moving underwater observatory, and De Palm Island, an all-inclusive attraction located six hundred meters from the mainland that features F&B facilities, water parks, snorkeling and other activities.
At De Palm, we are aware that our activities have the potential to negatively impact the environment and the local community if not managed correctly.
Therefore, we have obtained Earth Check certification for the past four years through the Earth Check Certification Program and aim for continuous improvement to achieve platinum level and maintain it by operating in a sustainable manner as much as possible.
Our Green Team, led by our Director of Sustainability and supported by key staff members, ensures that we are always in compliance with Earth Check standards.
We pledge to comply with all relevant legislation and regulations and remain committed to employing local residents and supporting fair-trade practices for goods and services in the area. We are also dedicated to educating our staff and communicating our commitment to environmental and social sustainability to all stakeholders, and we welcome feedback to improve our sustainability practices.
Our goal is to become the leader in sustainability practices in our segment of the market in Aruba.
For any questions or additional information, please contact our Director of Sustainability.
