Tread Lightly Initiative

We can no longer hide behind ignorance of the effects of global warming. At LUX* Resorts & Hotels , we aim to lead the way to a brighter future, while leaving only the slightest trace of our presence on the environment. We ensures that it offsets 100% of the carbon emitted by the guests' stay through its "Tread Lightly" initiative. Please access more information about Tread Lightly on www.luxtreadlightly.com
The GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation
The GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded in 2005 by the CEO of GML (formerly Groupe Mon Loisir), Arnaud Lagesse. In July 2009, it became compulsory for all Mauritian companies to use 2% of their profits after tax for Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. This budget can be put to use in specific spheres with registered organisations authorised by the National CSR Committee (NGO, Special Purpose Vehicle or National Programmes) or given to the Mauritius Revenue Authority (MRA) as a tax.During the past year, LUX* Resorts & Hotels has contributed Rs 2.8m to the GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation, which funds numerous projects to aid the alleviation of poverty, provide healthcare to the those in need, protect the environment and promote education and training in local communities.At LUX* Resorts & Hotels, we believe that education is key and have made it our biggest priority. As such, we offer educational programmes not only to our staff, but also to children in local schools, ensuring that future generations are raised as informed, responsible adults.Besides its own projects, the GML Joseph Lagesse Foundation also helps various other Mauritian NGOs.Through the shared efforts and contributions of the company, employees and local communities, we believe that the world really will have a lighter, brighter future.
