Here at Sovereign Luxury Travel we’re always striving to improve our luxury hotel collection as we believe in the transformative power of travel, by championing luxury green hotels that are committed to sustainability and responsible travel practises. This is as part of our ongoing company-wide current sustainability vision and policies.
Sustainability is a journey (not a destination)
Travel is an industry with many more obstacles than most as we operate within the context of a climate and biodiversity crisis and acknowledge that travel can have significant negative impacts in relation to carbon emissions. Sovereign supports cross-sector collaboration and initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of fossil fuel usage across the travel, hospitality, and transport sectors.
Sovereign have been embedding a range of global minimum sustainability standards into our business which include the ethical treatment of animals, green offices, reduction of single use plastic, safe and fair labour conditions, and the ethical and sustainable contracting of accommodation.
We’ve identified what we class as luxury ‘green’ hotels and resorts and, where appropriate, promote these over hotels that are not engaged in sustainability action.
For us, our sustainability vision extends beyond the environmental factors - we also look at the positive social and community impact our hotels make. Naturally, some of our hotels and resorts are stronger in certain responsible travel areas than others, and so we share the reasons why we celebrate them as ‘luxury green hotels’.
