Criteria for eco-lodge
The basic reason for the creation of eco-lodges is related to the conservation of the environment. Eco-lodges create a type of habitat that is different from others. This difference can be seen in both the build and the operating system of the lodges. In order to be recognized as an eco-lodge, a specific set of guidelines is to be followed, these are called the International Ecolodge Guidelines. According to these guidelines, the eco-lodge accommodation should be:
- Constructed in a natural environment where there is no disturbance by pollution, traffic smog or any sort of noise.
- Use renewable energy technologies and energy-saving systems.
- Provide education and awareness about the value and importance of a good ecosystem via different programs.
These criteria ensure that tourists and travelers become aware of the importance of a well-maintained ecosystem. It also ensures that they get to know that it is not necessary to modify or destroy habitats in order to contribute to the local economy and demonstrate a sustainable way of eco-tourism. All in all, if followed properly, these criteria help in building the development of a healthy and balanced eco-system.
At Kanopya Living, we did our best to follow the criteria. Our lodges are built in such a way that the traveler’s needs are fulfilled and maximum comfort and luxury is provided while keeping in mind the conservation of the environment.
Sustainability and Kanopya eco-lodges
The idea of sustainability is quite recent as the primary studies go back to the eighties. The fundamental aspect when talking about sustainability is primarily centered around the prosperity of future generations. However, the sustenance of irreplaceable natural resources is also particularly kept in mind. Our exquisite and luxury eco-lodges meet all the requirements for sustainable tourism. We are well aware of the importance of sustainability for the benefits of the planet. Our primary focus is to promote our sustainability efforts as we realize that the number of travelers is increasing with passing time and that tourism and in particular the construction of tourist structures, including hotels, have a major impact on the environment.
Kanopya Living has put a lot of efforts in setting a high bar from a time when it was founded. Sustainability is not what we do, it’s who we are. It is at the core of our vision to preserve and conserve the culture, community and most of all, the environment. We have adapted the sustainability practices long before they were considered fashionable. However, we do not allow these practices to act as a barrier when it comes to the luxury and comfort provided by our lodges.
Following are some of the key takeaways that play a vital role in establishing us as a leader in the sustainable tourism sector.
Built to blend in
We have always kept our focus on utilizing architectural strategies that promote the use of local and sustainable building materials hence incorporating local culture and also having a positive influence on the design. These materials consist of natural fibers, geo-sourced and bio-sourced materials, along with certified wood and rapidly renewable substances. We can also offer an advanced water-treatment by plants incorporates throughout the property.
We concentrated on designing an external independent canvas for our lodges that not only give an elegant look, protect the main structure but also emphasize on keeping the temperature of the lodge cool hence minimizing the need for air-conditioning which leads to an overall reduced energy need. High efficiency ceiling fan and many windows allow us to offer a natural ventilation to avoid using air-conditioning system. This also leads to overall lower energy consumption.
Conservation of environment
We believe that conservation of the environment should be a top priority when it comes to building lodges. In order to do that, we focus on building and installing energy-efficient equipment. These systems and equipment prevent the ozone layer from all sorts of damages. Moreover, we are also offering solar energy resources on demand. This step has been taken to preserve our environment and to offer the possibility to install the lodges in isolated places off-grid. Moreover, conserving the environment also maintains a balance in wildlife.
