Tuesday, Jul 26, 2022 0

Blue Safari Seychelles has signed the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge, which aims to promote sustainable traveland cultural heritage conservation globally.

Blue Safari is developing its new style of experiential travel with active conservation and of its pristine environs.

Created in 2019, the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge now has more than 4,200 hotels and travel companies worldwide committing to stringent standards.

The travel pledge encourages the five themes of community engagement, energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, and single-use plastic reduction.

The sustainable pledge is a way for travel companies to publicly commit to the actions they can take to protect local cultures and the natural environment.

Blue Safari operates in the secluded Outer Islands, offering adventures on land and sea.

Keith Rose-Innes, MD and co-founder of Blue Safari Seychelles said: “We are proud to sign the UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge in a collaborative effort to preserve the precious ecosystems that make up the Outer Islands for future generations.”

“Each guest that stays with us donates $30 a day to the islands’ three foundations, and we also donate 0.25 percent of our turnover to conservation.”

“The islands we operate on are self-sustainable,” Rose-Innes added.

The UNESCO Sustainable Travel Pledge is free to join and provides a certificate relevant to the entire travel industry whether large or small-scale operators.
