Another of the vitally important aspects addressed was the steady progress of the pioneering Wave of Change movement. The Iberostar Group continues to promote dynamics this year to continue leading a responsible tourism model and has already set new consolidated goals through its 2030 Agenda. For 2022, it has up to 15 objectives divided among the three areas of action: moving towards a circular economy model, promoting responsible consumption of fish and shellfish, and improving the coastal health of all the ecosystems that surround its facilities. To this end, this year it has created 3R departments (reduce, reuse, recycle) in all its hotels and continues to move forward to be free of waste by 2025 and neutral in carbon footprint by 2030.

In 2020, the Iberostar Group launched its 5 sustainability commitments to move towards a responsible tourism model based on the following major objectives to be met during this decade: 

  1. Stop generating waste in 2025 and carbon neutrality in 2030 (20 years before what the global sector has announced through WTTC). 
  2. To be 100% responsible in the seafood supply chain in 2025: consumption of fish and shellfish from 100% responsible sources.
  3. Invest in improving coastal health where all hotels are located by 2030.
  4. Get 90% of Iberostar customers to know about the Wave of Change movement, promoting a responsible tourism model to raise awareness in society and make it the deciding factor for 60% of customers to choose Iberostar in 2025.
  5. Duplicate the responsible tourism certification of Iberostar or of verified partners in the hotels of the portfolio by 2030.

Also in the different meetings, it was highlighted that on December 22, the Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Esmeralda, a new five-star hotel located on the beachfront, was inaugurated on the island of Cayo Cruz, Cuba, and in October 2021 it was inaugurated , in the Miraflores neighborhood (Lima), the first single-use plastic-free hotel in the Peruvian capital, the Iberostar Selection Miraflores hotel.
