Sustainability - What is it?
Sustainability at &Beyond is all about creating a company that can show meaningful and lasting benefits for the natural environments and communities that surround our operations.
The values and ethics of &Beyond are, and always have been, “Care of the land. Care of the wildlife. Care of the people.” By creating a world-class travel business built on these ethics we maximise our ability to drive meaningful benefits into these areas and increase, or even extend, the stability of the earth’s wild spaces. It’s an intuitive part of how we operate and it’s increasingly becoming part of the reason our guests find their experiences with &Beyond more rewarding.
We believe all businesses can take less and give more, and we seek to do this through our actions, big and small, each day. Whether it is pioneering the reintroduction of endangered species, such as black rhino or cheetah breeding, preserving threatened sand forests or simply managing the vegetable peelings from our kitchens, we all consciously seek ways to leave a positive legacy for the earth.
Even though we have a relatively small physical footprint, in terms of buildings and number of guests, we can have a disproportionately large positive impact on the wildlife and people that are interwoven with &Beyond . Our entire group of lodges comprises less than 450 bedrooms (smaller than a mid-size city hotel), yet we help sustain more than two million acres of the world’s most precious wildlife land.
We are “doing well by doing good” and it all starts with delighting each guest, and by creating a place where people travel with heart and feel nourished by what their holiday has meant to them and the world they’ve visited.
