The audit was conducted remotely during the summer of 2023 and involved the examination of textual, photographic and video evidence provided by the proprietors. Our team is satisfied that Pousada Serra Verde, first audited and accepted as an Ecoclub Ecolodge™ in June 2020, continues to meet our requirements and keeps improving their environmental and social policies and impacts. We have thus extended our recognition of Pousada Serra Verde as an Ecoclub Ecolodge™ for three more years to September 2026.
Reacting to the news, proprietors Kemely and Jeff Parfrey'' said: "We are delighted to have been awarded Ecoclub Ecolodge™ status again. The process was thorough and made us review all areas of our business and related green initiatives. The Ecoclub Ecolodge™ process stands apart from many 'green' awards, which are often little more than paid for memberships and sad examples of 'greenwashing'. We would recommend this process to anyone who really wants to move towards genuine sustainability.''
