The flora of Ibiza's rolling hills and groves, together with the marine fauna native to its coastal coves and bays, offer incomparable biodiversity. Six Senses Ibiza is the first sustainable BREEAM certified resort in the Balearics. BREEAM is one of the world’s leading sustainability assessment methods for property. Through careful consideration of the effects that operating systems, materials, and purchasing policies have on the environment, Six Senses Ibiza will continue to develop new initiatives and procedures to not just minimize ecological impact but act as a regenerative force for good too.
Six Senses Ibiza runs a dedicated Sustainability Fund which supports local organizations and companies that make a positive social and environmental impact. A fixed percentage (0.5%) of the total resort revenue goes into this fund, as well as guest donations. Currently, Six Senses Ibiza supports eight local organizations dedicated to various causes such as educating the local community and fighting plastic pollution.
Six Senses Ibiza has its own farm located 15 minutes away, near the village of Santa Gertrudis. The farm is a true labor of love, where healthy, organic produce is grown and delivered fresh to be enjoyed in the resort’s restaurants. An orchard with more than 600 fruit trees in 15 different varieties grows apples, avocados, cherries, plum, and more.
We invest in a full-time Sustainability team dedicated to driving our sustainability efforts. The team can be found at the Earth Lab, the heart of sustainability at Six Senses. Full of Ibizan colors and scents, the Earth Lab offers workshops in which guests can make products with natural ingredients such as natural toothpaste, natural deodorant, and soaps to name a few. Food preservation workshops teach guests and hosts traditional and healthy methods of keeping food fresh in a natural way. Here, guests also learn about our sustainability projects and how each one of us can reduce consumption, and support local communities and ecosystems.

Together with our hosts, we are firmly committed to improving the ecological and carbon footprint from activities associated with the resort and spa operations.
We support a local hedgehog sanctuary that takes care of the spiky little animals populating our island when injured or in need. To celebrate the local hedgehog, a hedgehog soft toy created by local artists is placed in every guest room. It can be purchased and, by buying it, guests also contribute to the sanctuary through our Sustainability Fund.
With our Sustainability Fund, we support a conscious sailing course developed by the association One Planet One Life in partnership with IbizaPreservation. It’s aimed at skippers and the nautical sector in general. This course is specifically designed to raise awareness among sailors of their responsibility every time they go to sea. To create awareness already among children, a Posidonia summer camp was organized by IbizaPreservation in collaboration with the Vellmari association. During the diving camp, children learn to cherish and protect the seagrass meadows that are the centre of our marine ecosystems. Every year, we fund 22 scholarships to children from disadvantaged backgrounds, allowing them to attend the marine education course free of charge.
In order to help flight plastic pollution in Ibiza, we support local foundations dedicated to the same cause at land and at sea. The iBi Foundation runs a solar-powered catamaran with an integrated collecting net collecting plastics floating on the surface of the ocean. In 2022, 1.552 kilograms of plastic were removed from the Ibizan coast. Pachamama Beach focuses on the collection of plastic from beaches and land. This year, we were able to support the collection of 10kg of micro-plastic around the municipality of San Joan.
Working directly within our community, we make positive impacts by employing and purchasing locally, by organizing activities for hosts and guests to give back, and by directly funding community projects.
To help educate children on water as a precious natural resource, we are funding school workshops run by Alianza por el Agua, a local organization dedicated to water preservation. The initiative aims to raise awareness of the island’s limited water resources and of water preservation among school children. To date, we have reached students from five local schools, one from every municipality on the Island. We are also supporting APNEEF, a local non-profit association caring for children and adolescents with disabilities in Eivissa and Formentera. Six Senses Ibiza contributed to the creation of activities that are focused on the respect and protection of the environment for 140 kids.
The local organisation Plústiclab is designing recycled products and is also running workshops to raise awareness of the life cycle of polymers. They also teach how we can reuse and recycle plastic locally in a creative way, so it does not go to waste or worse, pollute our island. With our support, the Plústiclab team was able to build a bicycle that crushes plastics, creating small plastic granules used to create new products.
