For years, the region and city of San Carols has been exemplary in its efforts to promote sustainable tourism, CO₂ avoidance and the establishment of protected areas. San Carlos is also home to the largest solar power plant in the Philippines. In 2018 San Carlos was classified as the most sustainable city in the world by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature. In 2019, San Carlos also won the ASEAN Clean Tourist City Award at the ASEAN Tourism Forum in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The Resort Whispering Palms has supported all these efforts from the beginning and is active in various protected areas itself.
