African Sun: Eco-friendly tourism for a sustainable future

Staff Writer

African Sun has announced a series of initiatives aimed at reducing its carbon footprint in a bid to reduce its environmental impact and contribute to global climate change mitigation.

The hotelier said it is closely monitoring and analysing its energy consumption, including electricity, petrol, and diesel, to identify areas for emission reduction and implement targeted strategies to minimise its carbon footprint.

According to the company’s 2023 annual report, the initiatives include managing and minimising leaks of refrigerants, responsible handling and disposal of obsolete air conditioning units, and actively monitoring and addressing greenhouse gas emissions.

The company’s commitment to reducing environmental impact aligns with its goal of fostering a sustainable and resilient future.

As a member of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), all African Sun’s Holiday Inn hotels are required to meet energy consumption reduction targets.

“As members of IHG, all our Holiday Inn hotels are required to meet energy consumption reduction targets. Each hotel’s energy-saving target is developed based on current performance versus other hotels in the region and within the brand. We track our electricity, water, and gas consumption monthly for all our Holiday Inn Hotels for submission to the IHG Green Engage team,” African Sun said in its annual report.

The company’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint are part of a broader trend among businesses in the hospitality sector, which is increasingly recognising the importance of environmental sustainability in its operations.
