Environmental stewardship has been at the forefront of our tourism industry and Tanoa Group of Hotels has engaged with local communities to emphasize the importance of promoting and advocating green sustainable initiatives. One such initiative was planting of mangroves on Friday, 03 November at Taiperia (Yavusa Saru Historical Site) by the Tanoa Team from all the Hotels in Fiji lead by Fiji Area General Manager Mr. Narend Kumar.
“It was very pleasing to see our Team from Tanoa Plaza Hotel Suva join the rest of us from the west for this worthy cause," Said Mr. Kumar. "This strongly demonstrates our commitment and passion to green sustainable programs towards our local communities and we ensure that limiting our carbon footprints will not only benefit us but our people, the future generations and above all our guests as well”, added Mr. Kumar.
This sustainable initiative was a success through a collaborative effort with Ministry of Forestry, Western team, in identifying an area of need for this project and there could not have been a better location than the Yavusa Saru Historical Site for the mangrove planting. Tanoa Hotel Group was also grateful to Ministry of Forestry who provided the 300-mangrove seedling for planting. The Group also took the opportunity to provide some Diwali themed hamper packs to the Taiperia settlement families to show their appreciation for allowing them to activate their sustainability initiative on their shoreline and at the same time celebrate the festivity of Diwali spirit with them.
“Diwali is always celebrated in a unique way in Fiji where we promote unity, peace, and harmony amongst the multi-ethnic society that we live in by sharing our celebrations with all. We also take this opportunity to wish all our guests, colleagues, and business partners a happy Diwali as well especially from our Group Chairman, Mr. YP Reddy, Managing Director Rohit Reddy, and Director Kamini Reddy”, stated Mr. Kumar.
