Travel with IMPPACT™
Part of a program called Travel with IMPACT™, the carbon footprint calculation engine works as a sustainable actions module that lives on the resorts new website.

These actionable offsets include beach cleanups, protection of coral reefs and marine life, education on environmentally friendly practices, and more.
Clients add group size, length of tour, and choose to calculate hotel stay alone or include transportation. From there, a selection of ongoing projects will appear for guests to choose from if they decide to offset part of their stay.. Next steps for Ocean Club Resorts include implementing similar projects in the destination for guests to volunteer their time or donate monetary as actionable compensation.
