Here at Sovereign Luxury Travel we’re always striving to improve our luxury hotel collection 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, such as how we minimise carbon emissions through aviation and prevent overtourism of popular destinations. But it can also be a fantastic force for good, from supporting wildlife conservation efforts to being a major employer and contributor to local economies.
While we are far from perfect, we have been making inroads, including instigating dialogues with all our handpicked hotel partners about their sustainability goals, as we develop a fair hotel evaluation process where we can assess tangible - and sometimes measurable - actions.
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’.
Off-the-beaten track destinations | Sustainable design and construction | Supporting, protecting and restoring local habitats and wildlife | Low impact activities
Some of our hotel and partners are roads ahead, already having won credible awards in this field, or boasting industry-specific certification that independently backs up their claims.
