Eco Awards Namibia

Eco Awards Namibia is a mark of distinction for accommodation establishments that are planned and managed according to eco-friendly principles. The programme promotes the selective and careful use of our resources, promoting reducing, recycling and reusing. In the process an establishment can improve its profitability, often with very little additional expenditure.

The programme is based on similar schemes in several other countries, and the criteria that those schemes use were amended to suit the Namibian environment.

Awarding of an Eco Awards desert flower certificate is a sign that the establishment keeps to a standard of environmental care and implements sustainable practices for the future of the  immediate environment, the company and the people. 

During 2015 the entire Wolwedans Collection was audited by EcoAwards and scored 5 flowers at the first go. This remarkable achievement affirms our leading role in sustainable tourism operations.
