Making buildings energy efficient and delivering all energy with renewable technologies.
We acknowledge that burning fossil fuels in our operations contributes to the emission of more greenhouse gases than the Earth’s natural systems can process, which in turn is resulting in catastrophic climate change across the globe. Our projects to assist in reducing our emissions include renewable energy installations, energy demand reduction and the reduction of diesel-powered vehicle use.
Electricity and generator power make up the lion’s share of our carbon footprint. To address this, a number of our lodges are undergoing a significant shift towards renewable energy with the installation of clean solar power technology. The implementation of other energy-efficient systems, such as highly efficient air-conditioners and LED light bulbs, further reduces lodge energy demand. We record and monitor our carbon-emitting resources monthly, and conduct periodic carbon footprint analysis.
