Reducing the need to travel, and encouraging the use of modes of transport with low and zero carbon to reduce emissions.
Being located in remote areas raises a challenge for reducing our carbon emissions from vehicle fuel use. Additionally, a key guest experience is the ‘game drive’. We are keen to adopt the use of electric vehicles once suitable options become commercially available. But until such time, we strive to maintain and use our vehicles as efficiently as possible.
Bioregional – One Planet Living
Singita’s sustainability partner – Bioregional – champions better and more sustainable ways to live, work and do business. Founded as a charity and social enterprise, the London-based consultancy reviews and advises us on our sustainability journey and has helped to ensure that Singita is recognised as a global leader.
Bioregional’s One Planet Living sustainability framework comprises ten guiding principles and its detailed goals were developed together with WWF. Backed by science and many years of hands-on experience, this highly flexible framework helps organisations around the world achieve their vision of a brighter, better future.
Singita Serengeti adopted the framework in 2012 and since 2016, all our properties have been committed to its principles. It serves as a basis for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving water, improving waste management and recycling, having a positive impact on local economies and conserving precious natural resources. These sustainability principles are critical to the fulfilment of Singita’s 100-year purpose, and drive us towards our goal of being a completely carbon-neutral operation.
