Sustainability is development and actions that take responsibility for its total impacts, and build economies and communities that thrive, so that the planet can too. To meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, SUSTAINABILITY MUST BE REGENERATIVE and travel must result in greater benefits than damage in the destination.
Sustainability has three goals:
1. To support the Sustainable Development Goals
2. To be Climate Positive (also known as Carbon Negative), preferably before 2030
3. To make sustainability a policy and Standard Operating Procedure to manage risk, build resilience and save money
NOW Sustainability is a ’tool to trust’ for all stakeholders.
Climate Positive, also known as Carbon Negative, is better than Net Zero
Our guests travel to this beautiful location in the heart of the Swiss Alps for its unspoiled flora and fauna, the crystal-clear mountain streams and the majestic glaciers. The vulnerability of this sensitive environment requires us to reflect critically on our business and the affect of our actions.
The Alpina Gstaad has decided to join the NOW Force for Good Alliance, striving to be an active frontrunner in sustainable luxury tourism.
It was clear that NOW would take us on a focused and thorough sustainability journey and we specially like the idea of striving towards an accreditation for our actions.
It created a lot of work initially and made us think hard about what we did and didn’t do, answer tough questions and commit to the right way forward. We realized the good things we were doing and highlighted the many gaps which we are now rapidly closing. Our young team want their work place to take the right steps to reduce waste and do the right thing for the environment. Guests notice and a few applauded us for our actions.
We are aiming high in all that we do and this includes our sustainability goals. NOW is most definitely proving to be a Force for Good.
"Sustainability is at the heart of Soneva. Our core purpose is engaging an imaginative "SLOW LIFE". We have incorporated Sustainability into our fabric from the very beginning, when we started in 1995.
We are pleased to team up with NOW to drive sustainability throughout the Industry.
We are very happy to be collaborating with NOW and starting on our sustainability journey.
As an industry we all need to be making steps to become more sustainable and NOW is an excellent force driving this initiative. The exercise proved very useful in highlighting the areas where we can make positive changes and I am excited to begin our commitment to a sustainable future.
