Kapama’s Carbon Offsetting

Nov 29, 20210 comments

As a Private Game Reserve operating four lodges, Kapama understands the impact burning fossil fuels in our everyday operations has on the environment, contributing to an increase in greenhouse emissions.

 Greenhouse gases trap heat and make the planet warmer. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation for human consumption. These additional greenhouse gases are resulting in catastrophic climate changes across the globe.

 Kapama is committed to implementing projects and installing energy-efficient equipment to reduce our emissions, as much as possible – such as renewable energy installations, solar panels and buildings to optimize energy.

 With the extensive renovations to Kapama River Lodge’s suites, which began during the lockdown in June last year, one of the most significant aspects of the project was to ensure we lived up to our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. We committed to installing low energy consuming inverter air-conditioners and a water heating system, to service the newly renovated rooms and reduce our energy consumption. The water heating system includes low-pressure solar water panels and a heating plant resulting in 80% less consumption than conventional heat pumps.

All our initiatives serve as a basis for Kapama to save water, improve recycling and waste management and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. If we all work together for the greater good of our planet and environment, we can all live healthy, happy lives within the resource limit of our beautiful world to help preserve and conserve nature for generations to come.
