OUR SUSTAINABILITY JOURNEY
At Fairmont, we’re committed to making a difference in the communities where our guests and colleagues live, work, and play.
We recognize that to be genuinely sustainable, we must focus our efforts on social and economic development. This holistic approach is the foundation of our Fairmont Sustainability Partnership program.
The program comprises four key pillars:

RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS:
We strive to conduct our business with integrity and demonstrate accountability for our actions and sustainability commitments.

ECOSYSTEM:
We strive to enhance the well-being of local communities and extend our positive impact beyond our immediate operations to the broader ecosystem.

ENVIRONMENT:
We strive to reduce our environmental impact by strategically integrating innovative practices across our services globally.

ENGAGEMENT:
We strive to engage and support the stakeholders that are affected by our operations in a holistically and collaboratively manner.

The Fairmont Sustainability Partnership program represents our ever-expanding commitment to being a responsible business and to following the principles of sustainability across our operations. To ensure we accomplish our goals, we have Sustainability Teams in place at each of our properties worldwide.
Please join us on this exciting journey. We can all be a part of creating positive change. For more information, visit fairmont.com/corporate-responsibility.

SEA TURTLES
Mexico is the “land” of sea turtles. The diversity and wealth of our coastal environments offer ideal conditions for their feeding, rest, and reproduction. Of the eight sea turtle species that exist worldwide, seven come to our beaches to nest, both on the Pacific and the Atlantic shores, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Caribbean Sea. These species are the Green Turtle Chelonia Mydas, the Loggerhead Caretta, the Hawksbill Eretmochelys Imbricata, the Leatherback Dermochelys Coriacea, the Black Turtle Chelonia Agassiz, the Olive Ridley Lepidochelys Olivacea, and the Kemp’s Ridley Lepidochelys Kempii.

Sea turtles are exceptional and fascinating animals. There are many facts about them worth knowing:

  • A sea turtle can live for more than one hundred years
  • Sea turtles can hold their breath underwater for more than an hour
  • Sea turtles spend their whole life in the ocean, but they have to come out to dry land to lay their eggs
  • A female sea turtle can lay more than 6000 eggs throughout her life, but only one out of 1000 turtles that hatch reaches adulthood
  • The temperature inside the nest determines the gender of sea turtles: at warmer temperatures (approximately 91°F) more females are born, and at colder temperatures (about 88°F) more males are born
  • The leatherback is the largest sea turtle species; it can measure up to 8 ft. long, weigh more than 1300 lbs, and can dive down to depths of more than 3000 ft.

Sea turtles are exceptional and fascinating animals. There are many facts about them worth knowing:

From May to October, sea turtles from around the world’s oceans reach our beaches to lay their eggs. Human beings are the most magnificent sea turtles predators, but we can all contribute to their survival:

  • Let them pass by without disturbing them
  • Keep our beach and sea clean
  • Keep your pets away from the beach
  • Do not buy or consume turtle products

Fairmont Mayakoba has implemented an “Adopt a Turtle” program, and we hope you can join us during one of our turtle release events, a life-changing experience. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter for the release calendar.

And two key areas focus on food and buildings.

  • 100% of our hotels are engaged in a citizen initiative or solidarity program
  • 10 million trees will be planted with our Plant for the Planet program by 2021
