Sustainability & Eco Travel

Slide OUR GOAL In the United Nations Race to Zero campaign:
We pledge to achieve net zero emissions before 2030

Our Commitment

Like everybody else in the world, we at Safestay, are concerned with the urgent need to offset the impact of tourism on the environment. Travelling is a unique experience that should be enjoyed without causing damage to the planet. 

Recognising that climate change poses a threat to the economy, nature and society-at-large, our company commits to take action immediately in order to:

1. Halve our greenhouse gas emissions before 2030
2. Achieve net zero emissions before 2030
3. Disclose our progress on a yearly basis

In doing so, we are proud to be recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, and join governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world with the same mission.

Why Offset?

What does net zero emissions mean? Why do we have to reach this state by 2030?

Businesses are increasingly aware of the importance of adopting an ethical framework. Under the banner of Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) there is a growing understanding that consumers value those that operate with integrity. Not just building resilience to climate change, curbing greenhouse gas emissions but also adopting considerate societal roles. For us that is providing improved living conditions to our employees, committing our suppliers to the same standards and ensuring a positive impact in the communities we are present in. The final aspect is to hold the business to responsible governance, with improved systems and mechanisms. We are asking our guests to support us by offsetting their impact on the environment by supporting climate care. We commit to matching your spending from our profit.

Once you get to any of our Safestay locations, the carbon consumption impact comes mostly from aircon, where available; chemicals being dumped into the environment by industrial laundries; poorly managed energy consumption and waste.  

Light Bulb Energy Conservation

Where we own the building we are installing solar panels and make contributions to offset carbon emissions to zero. We use external companies to measure our consumption so we can adopt improvements. We aim to understand how to reduce consumption by adopting new to market, energy efficient technology that helps us to determine contributions to offset our utilities carbon consumption.

Linen washing is the next big impact area. Safestay aims to work with suppliers that have well established environmental credentials. The use of environmentally friendly chemicals or the commitment to do so by 2020 are central to renewing contracts and we also ask guests to avoid unnecessary linen wash.

Tick Waste Reduction

And we are invested in dealing with waste in a responsible manner. We are installing bluetoothed bar code locks to erradicate key cards. We have eliminated plastic packaging and adopted selective waste management. We use upcycled furniture and when not possible we use renewable local materials. We segregate waste in line with the capability of each local government.
