Environmental and Social Responsibility:
​Soneva Kiri measures its Total Impact Assessment - developed by Soneva as the first ever in the hospitality industry - which allows the us to take a ‘planetary boundaries’ view of all our social and environmental impacts. We have calculated the true environmental cost of our direct impact at our resorts and indirect impact via our supply chain and guest air travel. The results from the Environmental Profit & Loss account have been offset by the provision of jobs and training and social value generated through our community projects. The result revealed that our net impact on society is a positive one.

Soneva Kiri has been carbon neutral since 2012 and became carbon neutral in 2014-15 for both direct and indirect resort operations including guest flights, which accounts for 80% of our CO2 emissions. A 2% environmental levy on the room rate is used to invested through the Soneva Foundation in carbon mitigating projects that to date has mitigated 191,192 tonnes CO2 to date. Soneva Kiri's total carbon footprint including guest flights was 13,092 tonnes CO2. The projects that will mitigate around 1 million tonnes CO2 over their lifetime have improved the lives of more than 160,000 people to date.

Soneva Kiri is located on a remote island settings with no municipal power, water or waste facilities. We therefore have to create our own power and water utilities that are reliable 24/7, 365 days a year. Soneva Kiri is 100% self-sufficient with water through rainwater harvesting and deep-wells. 75% of our waste is recycled through state-of-the-art Eco Centro Waste-to-Wealth program. 100% of food waste is composted and the fertile soil produced is reused in our vegetable gardens.

We believe that a business must exist for a greater purpose than shareholder returns. We have shown through small tweaks in the way we do business, that we can have a net positive impact on society, a carbon neutral operations including impacts from supply chain and guest air travel, deliver exceptional guest experiences and at the same time operate profitably.
