Conservation at Volcanoes National Park
Singita Volcanoes National Park is committed to our 100-year purpose
We aim to preserve and protect large areas of African wilderness for future generations through the development of dedicated programmes that support biodiversity conservation as well as community partnerships that make a meaningful difference in the lives of people living in the area.
The One Planet Sustainability framework, which supports all of Singita’s operations, was also fundamental to the construction of Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House at Singita Volcanoes National Park (SVNP), and its set of 10 sustainability principles continue to guide all decision-making on the ground.
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.
