TREAD LIGHTLY BY LUX*©
Reducing carbon emissions has a positive impact on the effects of global warming.
We can’t promise clear skies, but with a little help from our guests we are working towards a carbon neutral future. We care about the environment and the communities that host us – locally and globally – so we’re offsetting 100% of the carbon emitted by each of our resorts and hotels, in collaboration with market leader AERA Group. Carbon emissions calculations align with World Travel & Tourism Council’s Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI) guidelines and are externally audited by Ernst & Young.
All 7 Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) carbon offsetting projects can be viewed here.
