Ycona aims to reach carbon neutrality within the next decade, by reducing down to zero the CO2 emissions via several initiatives. By already utilising a large amount of renewable energy sources from inception, we have made a considerable contribution to the environment.
It was decided from day one of the design that Ycona in cooperation with selected suppliers who utilise recycled materials and recycled plastics, would be used to minimise our footprint on the environment. Another important aspect is that Ycona, with over an area of 60000sqm could have hosted 300 hotel rooms yet decided to respect the local nature and vegetation by limiting the construction of the resort to 40 villas thus minimising the footprint and environmental impact (ESG goals 12,13,15).
The amount of trees and plants within the resort is enormous (more than 1 million plants) and has been a large portion of the Ycona investment. The privacy of all 40 independent villas is granted by luxuriant tropical vegetation that strongly contributes to the CO2 sequestration targets.
