Soneva presents its Sustainability Report for 2012-13.
The report details both the environmental impacts and initiatives of Soneva Resorts – Soneva Fushi in the Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Thailand.
Soneva Resorts reports they have made some positive progress during the year. One of the highlights is the improvement is waste management. 74% of Soneva’s waste was recycled, up from 27% compared to 2008-09 baseline.
Soneva’s total carbon footprint in 2012-13 was 46,098 tons CO2. Only 14% of these emissions came from energy consumption, which is the figure typically quoted by companies when measuring their carbon footprint. 78% of the emissions came from guest air travel.
To compensate for the unavoidable emissions Soneva is funding several innovative carbon mitigating projects including SLOW LIFE in Myanmar, Darfur Stoves Project and Soneva Forest Restoration Project.
Soneva will continue to work on improving our sustainability practices and make a positive impact in the communities in which they operate.
