Carbon offsetting to neutralise CO2 emissions
Fine Seasons has initiatives in place in the hotel to reduce its energy consumption. In addition to these sustainable initiatives, we proudly invest in the carbon offset projects from the Greenbalance Group, as another way to neutralise unavoidable CO2 emissions.In recognition of this, we have been awarded a certificate for the compensation of the hotel's CO2 emissions, and are considered to be a climate neutral hotel.
The project we are currently investing in, is the Cook Stove Project in Ghana. The project replaces coal pots with an efficient insulated stove called the Toyola Coalpot. The Coalpots are less smoky and use less charcoal or fire wood. Less smoke, means less emissions of hazardous air pollutants, which is beneficial to the health of the cooks, typically mothers and children. The project also creates employment opportunities throughout Ghana.
Fine Seasons aims to continue investing in projects to offset the hotels CO2 emissions. The next project we hope to contribute to, is training households in South Africa in a new cooking technique. The technique is more energy efficient and produces less smoke.
