"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

Mahatma Gandhi

Sustainability is an essential part of Sunwing’s current business practices and vision for the future. By recognizing and connecting with suppliers that share our commitment to quality, service, cost and sustainability, we have been able to reduce our use of resources while creating a more sustainable footprint. We encourage and empower our staff, partners and local communities to develop and implement sustainable operations and practices. This has helped us grow, while continuing to deliver differentiated products and services that provide value and meaning to our customers.

Fuel-efficient flying

We believe in responsible leadership and giving back to the communities we serve. Sunwing Airlines has already taken steps toward fuel efficiency with its modern fleet and high-load factor operation, recently investing in special equipment that has helped further reduce carbon burn by 7%. Its modern fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircrafts provides comfortable and reliable air transportation to over 900,000 passengers a year, while 24 aircrafts also allow Sunwing to offer Fly Better Performance with the best record for on-time departures and arrivals. The most fuel-efficient aircrafts, the reduction of fuel consumption by 3 to 5%, and a decrease in carbon emissions by up to 5% has resulted in savings and more competitive pricing. This leads to our Fly Better Price with a selection of complimentary amenities being included on our flights.

Daily operations

Our corporate offices, suppliers, partners and destination teams practice sustainability in day-to-day operations, from the use of double-sided printing that reduces paper consumption, to a heavy reliance on e-communications. A conservation policy and recycling program is being implemented by our hotel management wing, including an “Eco-Conservation” hanger, which encourages guests to hang up towels that they wish to re-use rather than discarding them after a single use, as well as changing bed sheets every third day. The use of new generation laundry equipment has optimized energy and water consumption for each hotel.

Sustainable tourism

Our Memories, Royalton, and CHIC resorts are proud members of Green Globe, a leader in sustainable tourism. Adhering to internationally accepted criteria for the sustainable operation and management of hotels and resorts, we strive to minimize our impact on the environment and improve the communities around us.
