Resource Management for Boutique Hotels: Plastic & Water

January 17, 2023 | 9:00 AM EST - 10:30 AM EST

You’re invited to join our January 17th webinar on Resource Management – Plastics & Water featuring expert insights from Emboo River Camp, Jade Mountain and Weeva, a new digital sustainability management solution. Discover how the Jade Mountain Resort in Saint Lucia works with nature to manage both its potable water needs and its wastewater treatment. Learn about the water harvesting, the technology and man-made wetlands that have successfully served the resort for over 14 years. Hear about how Emboo River Camp is working toward becoming Africa’s first carbon neutral safari lodge. Already running on 100% solar power, recycling 100% of water and eliminating single-use items from the supply chain, Emboo River is well on its way to achieving this goal.
