Towards environmetal sustainabilty

Principles

The principles of sustainable tourism defined by United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) 

Biodiversity: To support the conservation of natural areas, habitats and wildlife, and minimize damage to them.

Resource Efficiency: To minimize the use of scarce and non-renewable resources in the development and operation of tourism facilities and services.

Environmental Purity: To minimize the pollution of air, water and land and the generation of waste by tourism enterprises and visitors.

1.

 Only use good wood - buy wood and wood products that come from a sustainable legal source.  

2.

Create bee and butterfly friendly gardens and educate your guest by installing bee hotels and plant flowers with nectar and plants  the larvae can feed on. 

3.

Plant trees and shrubs to provide food and shelter for birds. 

4.

Measuring and monitoring your resource usage is the essential first stage in any bid to be able to save. Measure energy, water, transports, products etc to identify wasteful behaviour, unnecessary use and then make changes!

5.

Install sensors and controls. Exchange old techniques. Insulate houses and tight moldings in windows, doors, refrigerators, freezers etc.

6.

Reduce transports,  co-distribute goods with others, make it possible for guest to visit you by public transportation. 

7.

Install solar power, use elctric or LBG vehicles, buy green electricity. 

Biodiversity decline and loss of ecosystem services is a major global threat to the future of our planet and our generations.

Resource efficiency means using the Earth's limited resources in a sustainable manner while minimising impacts on the environment. It allows us to create more with less and to deliver greater value with less input.

Visibility is First Step to Savings

Fossil fuels are the energy of the past. 

 

Renewable energy doesn’t harm our health or destroy our planet. Renewable energy could be power generated from water, wind or the sun, or any other source that is replenished through a natural process.
