LUX* Re­sorts and Ho­tels

LUX* Re­sorts and Ho­tels has em­barked on a jour­ney to­wards a car­bon-clean fu­ture, known as ‘ Tread Lightly' (see page 09).

Work­ing with Eco­sur Afrique, LUX* asks for a vol­un­tary do­na­tion of €1 per room night – 32.5 per cent of which goes to­wards car­bonoff­set­ting projects in LUX* re­gions while 67.5 per cent is in­vested in re­duc­ing the car­bon emis­sions of LUX* prop­er­ties.

Other earth-friendly mea­sures em­ployed by LUX* in­clude en­er­gy­man­age­ment sys­tems, in-house wa­ter bot­tling, lo­cally sourced ‘Earth & Dance' wa­ters, pa­per-re­duc­ing tech­nol­ogy such as iPad room and reser­va­tion ser­vices, low-car­bon Scru­cap wines, all-or­ganic spa ri­tu­als, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient LED light­ing, and kitchen-oil re­cy­cling.

Fur­ther re­new­able-en­ergy projects and wa­ter-op­ti­mi­sa­tion pro­grammes are in the pipe­line.
