Earth Check Certification

Our Environmental Performance


Memmo Alfama achieved EarthCheck Gold Certificate.

EarthCheck is widely regarded as the world’s most scientifically rigorous Environmental Management Program, designed specifically for the
travel and tourism industry.


The Program is trusted by more than 1300 organisations in over 70 countries. It is used to measure key environmental indicators such as: energy and water consumption; total waste production and community commitment.

EarthCheck helps to determine an operator’s, community’s or government’s standard of environmental, social and economic performance and requires compliance to internationally recognised standards.

In order for us to attain Benchmarked status, we were required to collect and submit a year’s worth of operational data to EarthCheck for Benchmarking purposes. This was then compared to Baseline and Best Practice levels for operational data of organisations in the same sector and region. This report allows us to get an overview of our performance, where we are out-performing other as well as possible areas of improvement.

By displaying the EarthCheck logo, we are signifying our commitment to the efficient use of natural resources, the environmental education of staff, guests and suppliers and the use of biodegradable products.


Our Sustainability Policy requires us to:


→ Develop an environmental action plan regarding greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water consumption, solid waste management and environmental harmful substances management;

→ Develop a commitment with the local people, culture and suppliers;

→ To develop a continuing communication with the staff, major stakeholders, suppliers and guests;

→ To perform a yearly external audit to the policy and action plans.


We would like to thank our staff for their commitment to sustainable tourism practices and we ask all guests and suppliers to help us to restore and conserve the surrounding environment, care for local communities and drive economic health through tourism.
