CSR - Bis Lamer

BIS LAMER

The Bis Lamer CSR programme focuses on raising awareness regarding the degradation of coastal areas; education and teach to make the difference in the protection of the coastline for the next five years.

Bis Lamer is:

  • A mobile marine educational unit, which aims at raising awareness of school children on the marine ecosystem
  • Uses a multi-level approach through hands-on, field-based teaching methods for primary school students, secondary school students and the general public, and aims to be as wide reaching as possible, targeting students from public schools, non-formal education institutions and private education institutions.
  • Innovative initiative in support of the protection of the marine ecosystem, which is in line with the concept Maurice Ile Durable
  • Contribute in the protection of the coastlines of Mauritius and educate the public about the impacts of the degradation of the marine ecosystem.

THE PLANKTON PROJECT

Heritage Resorts implemented a plastic and glass bottle recycle plant in Bel Ombre which is now run as a co-operative by the locals.

The little things that count:

  • Heritage Resorts has a waste water treatment plant, an air conditioner system with compressor control and encourages its guests to manage their energy consumption.
  • All of its twelve restaurants use products sourced from the Domaine de Bel Ombre.
  • The 1,300 hectares of endemic flora and fauna of the Frédérica Nature Reserve are protected in association with the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation.
  • Heritage Golf Club is an eco-friendly golf course
  • All Veranda Resorts donate to their local communities through regional educational schemes
