Our Go Green Initiative
At the Beekman Group, we choose to manage the “triple bottom line”. This means that we focus, not only on the financial risks but also on the social and environmental risks that our business impacts. Our Go Green initiative has always driven sustainable projects to ensure that our planet does not suffer and will stay resilient for future generations.
Our Building is Green
More than 10 years ago, the Group started a quest to become greener and recycling bins were introduced at head office. Since then we have put many resource and environmentally sound practices in place, such as conserving electricity and collaborating with local vendors and suppliers, so that we can reduce our carbon footprint. The plan is to maintain our success by keeping in place the 3R’s campaign: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Our Resorts are Green
We began the roll out of sustainability practices at our resorts in 2012 and since then have kept our promise to promoting a healthier environment. As our resorts are refurbished, we try to lessen our carbon footprint by installing environmentally sound systems such as grey water recycling, solar geysers, heat pumps, gas stoves and more.
Our next big Green project is to install a solar farm at Dikhololo with the goal of providing most, if not all of the resort’s energy needs. Once we roll this out successfully at our pilot property, we will implement across all our resorts.
