Wave of Change: our commitment to the oceans

Wave of Change is Iberostar’s pioneering campaign that aims to eliminate plastic, promote responsible fish consumption, and improve coastal health.

  • A responsible approach to fish consumption

  • Promoting coastal health

  • Reducing the use of plastic

  • Observing lobster fishing season

    Responsible fishing means making a commitment to maintain species’ populations at the optimum levels needed for them to survive and reproduce, and making a contribution to the sustainability of marine ecosystems by minimizing environmental impact. At our hotels and restaurants, we only serve fish that are caught according to these standards.

    By making this pact, we hope to establish a model of responsible fish consumption based on gastronomic excellence while promoting coastal health and supporting local fisheries.

    That’s why we observe the lobster fishing season in the Dominican Republic. Outside the lobster season (from March 1 to June 30), you won’t find it on the menus at the Iberostar Hotels. Instead, we offer other items so we can continue to provide the quality and variety that our restaurants are known for, and guarantee the future of the lobster species.

    Observing lobster fishing restrictions is crucial to local communities, as it guarantees that they’ll have enough lobster to eat, sell, and preserve the following season.

  • Nurseries in Punta Cana

    In Punta Cana, Iberostar has created the first coral nursery which will be used to study the resilience of these animal colonies to climate change. We’ve also initiated a project to restore the mangroves at our hotels in the Dominican Republic, as well as an awareness program at educational institutions. 

    Our Group has also partnered with the Universidad de las Illes Balears (UIB) to create the Cátedra Iberostar del mar, or the Iberostar Sea Institute. Its missions are threefold. First, it aims to encourage specialized training in all fields related to the research, management and conservation of the marine environment. It also hopes to support research in marine ecology and related fields of study, helping to create new research groups and train specialized research staff. Finally it will work to share its knowledge by setting up studies focused on issues that the tourism industry faces in relation to the marine environment, as well as organizing courses, conferences, seminars and round table discussions. It can therefore encourage the sustainable use of marine resources and create public awareness of the importance of sea conservation.

    The Iberostar Group hopes to use its influence as a business to be a leader in expanding projects related to coastal health, especially those with a focus on coral reefs, mangroves, and seaweed beds. We’re taking three areas of action: Discovery, Protection and Restoration.

  • Uniforms made of recycled plastic

    The Iberostar Group strives to be a pioneer hotel chain, free of single-use plastics without compromising the quality that our guests expect from us. To do this, we’re taking tough stances on plastic and investing in the circular economy. One of the first steps was to change out the traditional polyester in our uniforms in favor of a material made entirely of recycled plastic.

    This new measure is just one of many that the Iberostar Group has already set in motion, such as eliminating single-use plastics from all of our rooms, swapping them out for other more environmentally-friendly materials. Our new wristbands are made out of an eco-friendly fabric, and we’re replacing plastic packaging with alternatives that are recycled and recyclable. We’ve already put these measures in place, which means we’re working towards a circular economy.
