The real heroes of our sustainability initiatives are our hosts, the committed and passionate individuals that make up Soneva and who are behind every positive figure in our sustainability reports. These are the Soneva Changemakers.
The Soneva Changemakers
As the custodians of pristine locations, Soneva is built on the foundation that a business must exist for a greater purpose than shareholder returns. We believe in a natural excellence in everything we do, whether it is delivering the ultimate guest experiences or providing energy to the rural poor in Myanmar through the Soneva Foundation.
The impact of our activities extends far beyond the fringes of our coral reefs, and as a company we take responsibility for our total impact on society. Financial and in-kind support for local community initiatives ensure that we are always a good neighbour, addressing our global impact, most notably in terms of the environmental influence of our supply chain and the carbon emissions from the flights of our guests, which requires a different approach.
In reporting terms, the Soneva Total Impact Assessment provides the quantitative assessments of all our social and environmental impacts. This includes the direct impacts at our resorts and indirect impacts via our supply chain and guest air travel.
In qualitative terms, the real heroes of our sustainability initiatives are our hosts, the committed and passionate individuals that make up Soneva and who are behind every positive figure in our data tables. These are the Soneva Changemakers.
Soneva Total Impact Assessment
We have devised a robust accounting system, the Soneva Total Impact Assessment (TIA), to measure our total impact on the planet, not just our financial performance. We have always had a clarity of purpose and combining this with the underlying data and subsequent analysis of our TIA allows for more precise sustainability interventions in our operations and our supply chain.
Soneva and the Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals provide a strategic framework for us to adopt alongside our own Total Impact Assessment (TIA) methodology. Between the two, we can monitor how we are measuring up in our own operations and what we are contributing to the wider society. With each of our projects our aim is simple – to make a difference wherever we can.
