At Memories Group, our teams work hard to adhere to the highest standards of operations. For the year 2019, our Corporate Social Value and Sustainability Actions included thorough processes to achieve ethical standards. We also worked towards sustainable and greener practices as well as provided transparency within all properties and experiences of Memories Group.
In another article on ‘Ghost Net Retrievals’, we looked at how divers at the resort teamed up with Ocean Quest Global in retrieving lost and abandoned fishing nets from the sea. In 2020, the restoration and rehabilitation of existing corals along the two main locations at Awei Pila will be our core sustainability project.
Ocean Quest Global is also determined, this time, to carry out a rehabilitation project. In an aim to involve the greater local community to participate in sustainability practices, volunteers will be guided and supervised during the project. The inclusion of local staff and volunteers will create advocates who can help promote and educate others on the benefits of coral restoration and minimise resource costs.
There are many ways to live a greener, and it can start from just a small step. At Burma Boating, not even a single use of plastic straw is allowed or used on boats. Plastic straws are strictly prohibited to eliminate their negative effects on oceans and aquatic life – and thus decreasing the chances of ocean pollution. The great news is that every sustainable initiative is implemented as part of our promise to offer the best standards of luxury experiences in the Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar.
From limiting the use of plastic straws at Burma Boating to coral rehabilitation at the resort, read the full report about our sustainability actions here.
