Clear blue sky, clean water and unpolluted air are natural resources no longer accessible to everyone. Due to high levels of carbon emissions, resource depletion has become a matter of deep concern. This calls for initiatives to mitigate impacts and protect our ecosystem and societies. LUX* Resorts & Hotels, a hotel group in the island of Mauritius, situated on the East Coast of Africa, introduced the “Tread Lightly” initiative, a key sustainability instrument to help reduce carbon emissions, while maintaining its global positioning with a five-star rating. It’s widely studied how warming temperatures are causing significant impacts. Our study shows adaptation strategies adopted to reduce negative environmental impacts. This report shows an example of stakeholder engagement as a driving force for environmental and financial sustainability in resorts.
