With a strong focus on energy efficiency, water conservation, waste management, and social responsibility, Soma Bay takes significant steps towards a greener and more sustainable future.
Energy plays a vital role in Soma Bay's sustainability efforts. Using power savers, LED lights, and motion sensors minimises energy consumption, ensuring more efficient use of resources. Implementing solar power technologies further reduces reliance on conventional energy sources, demonstrating a commitment to clean and renewable energy solutions.
Water conservation is a critical priority in Soma Bay. Using Water Savers and a comprehensive water filtration system, seawater is purified and converted into potable water, minimising the strain on freshwater resources. Responsible water use is also emphasised through employee training, ensuring minimal water usage during cleaning and maintenance activities.
Waste management and environmental preservation are core principles at Soma Bay. A comprehensive waste recycling program ensures that 100% of waste, including plastic bottles, is recycled. Waste segregation bins in public areas encourage guests to dispose of waste responsibly, creating a cleaner and more sustainable environment. Additionally, wastewater is recycled into fertilisers and grey water for landscaping purposes, minimising the impact on the surrounding ecosystem.
Soma Bay's commitment to sustainability extends beyond environmental efforts. The resort takes pride in its strong ties to the local community, with 99.6% of its employees hired locally. Engaging in local traditions and cultures, Soma Bay actively supports donation campaigns and contributes to orphanages, fostering a sense of social responsibility and empowerment within the community. Furthermore, the resort is dedicated to sourcing products locally, supporting local businesses and reducing carbon emissions associated with transportation.
"We believe that every action, no matter how small, can make a difference," By implementing sustainable practices and engaging with our guests and community, we aim to create a positive and lasting impact on both the environment and the people.
