Using sustainable and healthy products, such as those with low embodied energy, sourced locally, and made from renewable or waste resources.
This principle applies to every resource we may use in our business – from items used in daily operations to construction materials for new lodges. We strive to procure locally not only to reduce carbon miles but also to support local economies. We are conscious of the environmental impact of the materials used in the resources that support our operations. An example of this is the group-wide rollout of a local, organic and environmentally friendly range of in-room guest toiletries to replace the previous imported, non-organic brand.
100% of the stones were reused in the Singita Boulders Lodge refurbishment.
Singita Sweni Lodge's 2017 refurbishment focused on the use of sustainable materials, such as only FSC-certified wood.
