LUX* Resorts is a leading group of hotels which strongly
believes in sustainable tourism development. It has taken various
initiatives in order to achieve same, amongst which the
implementation of a Green Committee across the group to handle all
environmental and energy saving related activities. LUX
Resorts has embarked in a journey towards a carbon clean future
through its project "Tread Lightly". Launched in August 2011,
"Tread Lightly", is an amalgam of green projects.
To reduce its energy consumption from electricity which is
mainly from the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning)
system, LUX Group has introduced an Energy Management
System (EMS). The EMS will also consider the security aspect
of each room. The system will also provide professional reports to
assess each step towards meeting the set objectives of reducing
energy consumption and thus reducing the carbon footprint.
For further monitoring of energy consumption and hence reduction
in carbon emission, a Carbon Management Plan (CMP) has
been introduced. The CMP consists of actions to be taken by the
resorts and the members of the Green Committee at LUX Island
Resorts Ltd from each respective entity are responsible to ensure
that the actions are well undertaken.
Other initiatives include a laundry reduction
project. The group has introduced a "Laundry Asterix" in
each of its room with the below messages for the guests:

very diplomatic way.

NGOs like Ecosud for planting of
Mangroves along coastal regions with the participation of
different schools. It is also supporting Mission Verte
