OZEN Reserve Bolifushi’s sustainable operations include an efficient waste management system built around the ‘Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle’ approach. This effort includes a structured waste collection and segregation process and reducing plastic waste by offering drinking water from the in-house water bottling plant. Up to 75% of the resort’s waste is currently recycled.
The resort also uses sustainable solar energy, as opposed to the large diesel generators commonly found in this region - a move that has significantly reduced the property’s carbon emission. Further energy-saving technology is utilised throughout the resort, such as LED lighting, low energy equipment and appliances, and timers to control usage.
Additional green initiatives on the island include the presence of staffed marine biologists, coral planting and restoration, beach and reef clean-ups, and encouraging colleagues and guests alike to participate and support green actions.
