Loro Parque is developing a sustainability strategy to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. Loro Parque’s integrated management system is certified under international environmental standards ISO -14001:2015 and ISO 9001, EMAS III Regulation, and Biosphere Park. All details can be found in our environmental statement.
Loro Parque has a water management system that generates 600,000 liters of drinking water per day through seawater desalination, achieving significant resource savings. Additionally, the water used undergoes a chemical process known as flocculation, ensuring that it is clean before being returned to the sea without polluting the oceans.
Regarding renewable energy facilities, it’s noteworthy that these not only contribute to offsetting the park’s energy expenses but also support the sustainability of the Canary Islands’ energy system. The energy generated in the photovoltaic park located in the south of Tenerife (2.75 MW of photovoltaic power, avoiding the emission of more than 2000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere annually) feeds into the general energy grid of the archipelago. It’s no coincidence that the Directorate General of Energy has declared the project of the new photovoltaic energy plant, Loro Parque II, as a matter of public utility.
Moreover, Loro Parque has a wind turbine that will be operational soon, generating 12.5 MW that will be fed into the general grid. This way, the company’s energy generation will surpass the park’s needs in this regard.
