Patina Hotels & Resorts, Capella Hotel Group's newest hospitality concept, is taking pioneering measures toward sustainability with its first flagship hotel, Patina Maldives, Fari Islands. The brand is devoted to renewable energy and intends to grow its solar plant to provide 50% of the resort's energy needs for food and beverage by 2030 and beyond. It also intends to invest in long-term blue carbon partnerships and to install solar panels on beach and water villas.
The resort also focuses on coral propagation and is collaborating with Kevala Ceramics to create handcrafted ceramic frames as a natural alternative to other commonly used materials. Patina's marine biologist, Oshin Christopher, and guests worked together to create 40 coral frames and 30 ceramic structures, as well as plant 1,500 fragment corals into the house reef. Patina's dedication to sustainability and focus on creating a brighter future for the hospitality sector is reflected in these efforts.
Capella Hotel Group has made tremendous efforts to reduce its environmental impact. In addition to its strategic cooperation with Earth Check, the leading scientific benchmarking certification and advising organisation for travel and tourism, Capella Hotel organisation has established Science Based Targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. Capella and Patina locations have developed several F&B sustainability efforts to assist sustainable food procurement, waste reduction, and other positive actions in order to meet these aims.
