AMSTERDAM, May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

The Public Access Lagoons(TM) ( 
https://www.crystal-lagoons.com/public-access-lagoons/ ) projects that Crystal 
Lagoons ( https://www.crystal-lagoons.com/ ) is developing around the world 
could reduce 14 million tons in CO2 emissions, equivalent to 40% of the carbon 
footprint of the tourism and transportation industries. Through its 
contribution to furthering carbon neutrality in different economic and social 
activities this has led the so-called PAL(TM) developments to be recognized as 
"Champion of Champions" in the 2022 version of the "Green World Awards" in Abu 
Dhabi.

The multinational water innovation company won both the award in the Carbon 
Reduction category and the highest distinction in these British sustainable 
awards, beating the winners of the categories of Climate Change, Water and 
Energy Efficiency, Innovation and others, as well as the more than 500 entries 
received by the organization.

PAL(TM) projects revolutionize cities by bringing beach life with turquoise 
waters and white sands to urban areas and reducing by about 50% the number of 
car journeys and flights to coastal destinations and natural beaches that, 
globally, total about 35 million tons of CO2 per year.

The "Green World Awards" recognize the countries, companies and organizations 
that contribute the most to protecting the ecosystem and are sponsored by 
reputable British environmental organizations.

The PAL(TM) developments were selected for their pro-environmental concept and 
the prize was awarded at Abu Dhabi. The "Champion of Champions" award is not 
the first accolade to be bestowed on PAL(TM) projects. The model previously 
received the Green Apple Award at the Palace of Westminster in London.

A key factor in the nomination was the groundbreaking nature of these 
complexes, which bring beach life to the cities through large crystalline 
lagoons suitable for swimming and water sports, surrounded by white sandy 
beaches and diverse infrastructure of services and entertainment.

The PAL(TM) developments reduce commuting and generate carbon footprint savings 
equivalent to the annual energy consumption of 2.3 billion homes, as they allow 
people to access the beach by walking, cycling, using public transportation or 
short car trips.

Crystal Lagoons already has 810 PAL(TM) developments in various stages of 
development around the world. Among the most notable agreements are in: United 
States (5 PAL(TM) projects in Orlando and 4 in Atlanta), Korea (30 PAL(TM) 
projects), Pakistan (15 PAL(TM) complexes), Colombia (13 PAL(TM) projects) and 
Central America (11 PAL(TM) developments).
