El Gouna is #1 Green Town in Egypt

Why El Gouna is recognized as Egypt’s number one environmentally friendly resort!

More often than not, resorts have a hard time being able to serve their guests, while being able to give back to their community, create a sustainable environment, conserve their resident country’s precious resources, and encourage their guests and residents to do the same.

Not in El Gouna.

El Gouna’s state of mind isn’t only reserved for relaxation and creating an ideal community in Egypt. This award-winning seaside resort aims to preserve its environment and community by establishing objectives such as continuing to be a zero-waste town, producing organic food through its own El Gouna Farms, aiming to be the only carbon-free resort in Egypt, and building several new solar plants to make use of the natural resource which it receives in abundance!

All of these sustainability initiatives and programs above give several opportunities for all to contribute to the preservation of El Gouna and to learn how to better protect their environment. With these accolades, El Gouna can proudly state that it is Egypt‘s number one environmentally-friendly resort!
