Green the Fleet® strives to make the adventure lifestyle environmentally sustainable for our guests and the health of our oceans and lands.
Aggressor Adventures® recognizes the urgent plight of our environment and works to combine excellent service with environmental awareness, actions and stewardship.
All welcome briefings include information about our environmental initiatives, conserving water, and respectful interactions with wild life. New sustainability initiatives will build on existing green operations already in place across the company.
- Switching from single-use plastic bags to small, compostable, non-plastic garbage bags.
- Sourcing their seafood from a local, certified responsible fishery, and purchasing only local produce, meats and sustainable seafood.
- Participating in local recycling efforts and donating any items that are still in good condition to local charities.
- Purchasing beverages in glass bottles or cans only and providing each guest with a complimentary reusable water bottle.
- Limiting the use of plastic storage bags by using reusable storage containers.
- Using primarily non-toxic, biodegradable cleaners.
To increase environmental sustainability, Green the Fleet® will work toward eliminating single-use plastics from all Aggressor destinations beginning with plastic straws, cups and utensils. Single-use plastic water bottles will be phased out and replaced with stainless steel, reusable water bottles.
To further help protect the coral reefs, Aggressor’s Green the Fleet® initiative will provide Stream2Sea coral-safe sunscreen and shampoo for divers.
The Aggressor Safari Lodges are very focused on sustainability and giving back to the country. The lodges support conservation and community involvement in many ways which directly support the needs of the surrounding communities of the lodges and the love of nature. It is important to Aggressor to develop a significant positive influence on the local people, the environment, animal life and the tourism. Here’s what we are doing:
Aggressor Safari Lodges® - Sri Lanka
- The lodge staff are almost all from surrounding local villages. Hospitality training is offered with higher income salaries than local farming activities.
- Local villagers and farmers surrounding the Aggressor Safari Lodge and bordering Wilpattu National Park are being offered financial incentives to bring wild animals they would normally kill, poach or eat that encroach on their land from the park to the ATSL lodge for release back into the Kalaoya River and Wilpattu Park. (Crocodile, Mouse Deer, Tortoise, Freshwater Turtles/Terrapins, Peacocks, Water and Land Monitor Lizards and Hares)
- Solar power in use in many areas to reduce our carbon footprint.
