The Maldives' comprehensive Environment Policy is built on four pillars: sustainable management, social and economic development, environmental practices, and cultural heritage. Each of these strategies has been meticulously designed to protect the Maldives' natural resources and the local way of life.

Two key facilities – the expert-led Maldives Discovery Centre and Marine Discovery Centre – are helping to drive to CROSSROADS Maldives’ social and environmental efforts.

The Maldives Discovery Centre is intended to provide detailed information about the Maldives' culture, people, history, and unique environment and climate challenges. The facility has interactive displays and is staffed by knowledgeable, experienced guides.

Marine Discovery Centre is a pioneering conservation hub that aims to highlight environmental issues and showcase the destination’s phenomenal beauty. It features a marine biology laboratory and coral nursery, and regular initiatives include fish identification, coral propagation and more.

Hard Rock Hotel Maldives adheres to the global ethos of giving back, both globally and through participation in smaller community projects. It has not only acted as a catalyst for fund raising, but it has also raised the profile of corporate charity work. The brand's sustainability initiative, "Save the Planet," is built into the resort's DNA. SAii Lagoon Maldives is also investing heavily in sustainable solutions, such as an organic garden that gives guests a hands-on experience, and is currently building its first turtle rehabilitation center.

“In line with the Maldives’ strategic move towards becoming a green economy, CROSSROADS Maldives is proud to be the first multi-island leisure destination in the region to be certified by Green GlobeTM. CROSSROADS has always advocated sustainable strategies and actively develops initiatives that contribute to the green transformation of the hospitality industry. This is particularly important in the Maldives, where protecting our environment is the only way to ensure the nation’s long-term future. We hope that by leading by example, we can inspire our guests and drive genuine change,” said Tolga Unan, Managing Director for Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and The Marina @ CROSSROADS.

We believe that sustainability is the only logical next step in the travel industry, and we are fully committed to providing a visitor experience that highlights the natural beauty of the Maldives in a responsible and renewable manner," said Alexander Traeger, General Manager of SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton.
