“S” CERTIFICATION OF SUSTAINABILITY GRANTED TO 9 BAHIAS CONDOS
This distinctive “S” Certification is granted to developments and companies that operate in Mexico under the global sustainability criteria. 9 Bahías Condos is the second property in Huatulco, Mexico, to achieve this prestigious recognition for its residential housing and rental property with a successful economic model that includes the conservation of the environment. The key components of this award are based on the excellence in the use of solar panels, the separation of garbage and recycling, the successful use of water for its absorption in the ice sheets and the optimization of energy consumption through thermal insulation and acoustic as well as water heating through panels. The certification was issued by EarthCheck and Rainforest Alliance on April 17, 2018 in Mazatlan. Both EarthCheck and Rainforest are internationally recognized companies that promote the best sustainable practices, aligned with the global sustainability criteria also promoted by the World Tourism Organization.
In 9 bahias condos we believe that it is very important to take care of our environment, since the well-being of people depends on the good conditions of our planet and its system, therefore we took on the task of implementing 3 concrete actions since the construction phase in order to achieve:
1.-Efficient design of the use of light and reduction of electricity needs, with the implementation of double pain windows and isolation on the exterior to warranty savings, and tranquility.
2.- A sustainable practice to reduce pollution and thus preserve our environment thanks to our separation of garbage and compost creation. Therefore we ask that you review and comply with the garbage management guidelines on the days, times and forms requested.
3.- Minimalist design with feng shui study to ensure that your stay is pleasant and harmonious in a safe, familiar and pet friendly environment, for which we ask you to comply with the guidelines for handling pets, noise emissions, among other aspects that will guarantee a healthy coexistence with your neighbors and be part of the 9 bahias community.
4.- We have implemented rainwater harvesting in our architectural design as an option to reduce the excessive use of water and thus benefit the environment. The use of rainwater harvesting is an abundant, free, sustainable, good quality source that reaches us directly to our homes, which we have decided to implement in 9 Bahias condos as an option to reduce water consumption in green areas.
