LUX* Resorts & Hotels is a brand that cares. Naturally, we care about the quality of our guest experience – after all, we’re dedicated to celebrating life! However, global warming is a fact of life. Something has to be done, and we intend to do everything we can to protect the breathtaking environments that host our hotels and resorts. That’s why we’ve taken a voluntary stand to invest in projects that will meet the challenges of sustainable tourism head on.
Tread Lightly – 100% Carbon Free Stays
Reducing carbon emissions has a positive impact on the effects of global warming. With Tread Lightly, we’re offsetting 100% of the carbon emitted by each guest during his or her stay. To achieve this, we’re working with ImpactChoice, a market-leading provider of environmental sustainability solutions. We’re also donating our offsetting fee to a fantastic cause: the Sofala Community Carbon Project in Mozambique.Endorsed by Envirotrade Carbon Ltd., the Sofala project aims to empower and improve the livelihoods of local communities in one of the country’s poorest regions.
What’s more, we’re doing everything we can to reduce our carbon emissions, year on year. Our dedicated team of specialists, the LUX* Sustainability Committee, are working across the group to implement environmental and energy saving initiatives including our Energy Management Systems (EMS), Carbon Management Strategies, Laundry Reduction, and countless others. We are committed to this cause and will continue to invest in new technologies that help reduce carbon emissions. We are striving towards a brighter, cleaner future, and with Tread Lightly we’d like you to join us.
Although individual decisions may seem small in the face of global threats and trends, when billions of people join forces in common purpose, we can make a tremendous difference." Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
At LUX*, we recognise that our resorts and hotels have an impact on their locales. We are dedicated to ensuring that our company has a positive impact on the people who work for us, and the world in which they live.
Social Needs & Education
GML Fondation Joseph Lagesse
LUX* works in collaboration with the GML Fondation Joseph Lagesse, a non-profit organisation that strives to alleviate poverty, provide healthcare to those in need, protect the environment, and promote education and training in local communities.Education is key, and we’ve made it one of our biggest priorities. We’re offering educational programmes to our staff, but also to children in local schools – in doing so, we’re helping them become informed and responsible adults.
Pack for a Purpose
At LUX*, we’re dedicated to meeting our sustainable development objectives by having a positive impact on the communities around our hotels and resorts. To help achieve this goal, we’ve joined forces with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that encourages travellers to fill any available space in their luggage with supplies for children in need. A bundle of pencils or a solitary stethoscope can have a huge impact on a small local community – that’s why we’re encouraging our guests to Pack for a Purpose!
