At LUX*, we aim to lead the way to a brighter future, while
leaving only the slightest trace of our presence on the
Tread Lightly Initiative
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.

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* 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
At LUX*, 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.
