GIVING BACK EACH DAY
We really do care for our island! Environmental and social concerns lie at the heart of what we do,
and for several years, we have supported associations and patrons dedicated to these causes.
RESPECT OUR COAST CAMPAIGN
This campaign, in partnership with Reef Conservation, aims at drawing attention to the fragility of Mauritius’ coastline and ways to contribute to its preservation. This NGO focuses on the protection of the island’s marine environment through research, restoration, education and training. With its educational bus project (Mobile Marine Education Unit), the association puts marine science and environmental issues within the reach of the general public and students. This unique class is equipped with fun presentations, interactive tools, as well as laboratory equipment. The project is part of a long-term partnership with the association.
EDUCATION IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Each Veranda Resort supports its surrounding community through sponsorships and donations. For instance, Veranda Paul & Virginie Hotel & Spa encourages the education of Grand-Gaube’s children by funding the salary of a teacher employed full-time for the ‘Jean Eon’school, part of the Priority Education Zone. The objective of this project is to provide individual learning support to students who have learning difficulties and improve their performance in certain subjects. Another example is the collaboration with the Paille-en -Queue school, which helps children and adults from disadvantaged backgrounds who failed academically.
THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT
Veranda Resorts has a wastewater treatment plant, an air conditioner system with compressor control, in addition to taps and showers equipped with flow regulators and aerators. Some hotels are equipped with solar water heaters and composting systems. Guests are also encouraged to monitor their water and energy consumption. Always in support of Reef Conservation Association, Veranda Resorts has participated in the "Co- Branded Vital Bottles" project since 2010 and donates one rupee for each bottle of water sold to guests.
