Positioned in the tranquil Shaviyani Atoll, Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi, a secluded island retreat, exemplifies the seamless fusion of opulence and sustainability. Dedicated to upholding environmental preservation and responsibility, the resort has elevated its sustainability endeavors through a new partnership with Global Green Journeys.
Global Green Journeys constitutes a venture focused on raising awareness regarding effective worldwide solutions while advocating for scalable and sustainable approaches to foster widespread adoption. The team's mission centers on highlighting pivotal projects and endeavors promoting social, environmental, and economic sustainability. This dynamic collaboration harmoniously aligns with Fairmont Maldives' intrinsic principles and aspirations, augmenting its existing pioneering initiatives. This alliance empowers the resort to craft, champion, and execute more impactful sustainability initiatives, thereby contributing to a greener future.
At the heart of this collaboration lies a pilot project spotlighting the plastic pollution crisis and the technological innovations developed by Precious Plastic to address plastic recycling, thereby engendering broader socio-economic advantages for local communities. This initiative offers an exclusive glimpse into the resort's on-site Sustainability Lab, the Maldives' inaugural resort-based recycling facility. Beyond local impact, this undertaking fuels a global discourse on the significance of sustainability. As part of the pilot project, two notable figures visited the island resort, fashioning bespoke items from recycled plastic and engaging in diverse eco-themed activities. Notably, a visit to a nearby school, integral to the resort's CSR School Education program, facilitates the redirection of plastic waste to the Lab, inspiring the next generation to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle.
Proudly, Fairmont Maldives stands as the first Fairmont property worldwide to achieve the coveted Green Globe certification for its resolute commitment to sustainable practices and advancement. The resort's hallmark feature is its expansive infinity pool, a gateway leading guests to the Coralarium—a captivating subaquatic artwork by esteemed eco-artist Jason deCaires Taylor—and the nation's inaugural coral regeneration initiative, manifested in the form of an underwater gallery. Comprising 120 lavish villas, be it nestled on the ivory beach, ensconced within the verdant island jungle, or poised above the shimmering waters of the Indian Ocean, the resort seamlessly amalgamates chic sophistication with the rustic allure of the Maldives.
