The First Carbon Neutral Hotel Stays are Launched in Mauritius at Heritage Resorts and Veranda Resorts

Aera has been mandated the carbon footprinting and systematic offsetting of a major Leisure & Hospitality group in Mauritius

Veranda Leisure and Hospitality (VLH), operators of Heritage Resorts and Veranda Resorts, are offering the first carbon neutral hotel stays in Mauritius from October 2021. The initiative is a first for the hotel sector on the island and is part of a wider sustainable commitment and programme of community and environmental projects, many of which are already underway. The various projects are showcased on a new website under the programme name Now for Tomorrow.

Heritage Resorts will be offering guests carbon neutral stays at its two hotels, Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali in Bel Ombre – by offsetting all CO2 emissions that would be generated by a hotel stay. This objective will be achieved through the purchase of carbon credits with the Aera Group, an environmental commodity trader, and through local carbon offset projects including the construction of a photovoltaic farm. For guests at Veranda hotels, a voluntary contribution to these projects will be offered to customers.

Now for Tomorrow comprises five areas of action, in accordance with the Mauritius Business SignNatir pact, namely energy transition, circular economy, protection of biodiversity, living and integrated communities, as well as inclusive development. As sustainability is an integral part of VLH’s DNA, Heritage Resorts and Veranda Resorts are looking to integrate these five pillars of sustainability into their operations.
