At Itz’ana, our ethos stems from finding inspiration in our surroundings. From our living spaces to the food we eat, our initiatives are intimately familiar with the environment, a characteristic that reflects our authenticity here at Itz’ana. In much the same way, we are continuously seeking ways to look after the natural surroundings that embody our resort, caring for the landscape, the water that surrounds us, and the culture that represents us.
To achieve positive environmental and social outcomes, we are continuously developing conservation plans that will guide our resort’s operations. We are proud to announce that we are on our way to becoming Green Globe Certified, cementing our resort’s commitment to encouraging sustainable tourism. By implementing sustainable initiatives and encouraging our community to be stewards of the earth, we ultimately seek to become a pioneer and inspiration for responsible and sustainable hospitality.
As part of our commitment, Itz’ana is proud to introduce Eco-filters throughout our resort. Designed to purify water from almost any source, the introduction of this smart technology discourages single-use plastics often used for water packaging and limits the environmental impact created by water factories.
Our relationship with water is paramount at Itz’ana. Being surrounded by water, we understand the importance this resource has to us and those who depend on it. With our water savings initiative, we are able to use this resource efficiently and conservatively, while also encouraging our guests to practice mindfulness when using water on the property.
In line with our resort’s expansive open space designs, we are committed to implementing energy-saving plans that explore ways of decreasing the use of conventional energy sources. With the use of solar panels and energy-saving technology, we aim to bring new ways to power our operations.
At Itz’ana, we pride ourselves in showcasing the best of Belize and offering authentic experiences, which is why our team strives towards minimizing our environmental footprint and ensuring that we have a positive social impact in all that we do. We are excited to be in the process of becoming a Green Globe Certified resort!
