Carbon Neutral Project
Carbon Neutral Project
As an enhancement to our carbon neutral declaration policy, the company’s initiation for eco-friendly projects and partnership consideration to prioritizing climate advocacy seminars within the local institutions and forestry companies in Uganda and Rwanda like EcoForestry Capital Partners Limited to facilitate a number of tree planting projects in the tourism and wildlife rehabilitated neighbourhood communities like Kanungu, continuously helps to off-set any carbon footprints of the company. Equally, the various projects help in empowering small-holder farming communities through the creation of awareness about climate change and related issues, increasing household incomes through carbon payments/compensations, providing technical advice to farmers and conserving biodiversity by promoting the planting of indigenous and suitable exotic tree species in Uganda and Rwanda.
Tourism & Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations convention among world leaders on universal sustainable Developments committed all countries to pursue a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that would lead to a better future for all countries. The bold agenda thus sets out a global framework to achieving a sustainable world with restored eco-systems. This means that all SDGs and the corresponding targets offer the world a new direction that tourism companies like Snowea Wildlife Safaris can and must embrace a significant role in delivering sustainable solutions for people and planet at large.
Tourism being a reputable economic powerhouse Sparta as far as generating earnings for most African developing countries is concerned, is a signal to potentially contribute; directly or indirectly to all of the goals. In particular, it has been included as targets in Goals 8, 12 and 14 on inclusive and sustainable economic growth, sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and the overall sustainable use of the environmental resources worldwide.
