The team at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi undertake several projects and initiatives to work towards preserving the environment, biodiversity, culture and heritage of the Maldives. Below are just a few examples of how we are working towards creating a more sustainable future:
Water Bottling Plants at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi
Both Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli use in-house water bottling plants as part of an on-going commitment to reduce the hotels’ carbon-footprints. By utilising the water bottling plants instead of shipping in bottled water, each resort saves approximately 100,000 plastic bottles per year. This new water system is an important part of both resorts’ continued effort to preserve the idyllic surroundings of the Maldives for future generations of guests.
All our fishing excursions comply with the Maldivian law that enforces sustainable fishing. Commercial fishing in the Maldives is done by lines only which ensures that the fish are harvested at a sustainable rate, and the fish population does not decline over time. It also prevents the use of large fishing nets that often capture other marine life such as turtles and dolphins.
Jumeirah Dhevanafushi priorities are working with local suppliers to reduce environmental impacts of importing goods and also improves social and ethical practices. We do not condone or support any activities that are against Maldivian government laws and acts.
