Travel and tourism are amongst the world’s largest industries. As such they have the potential to alleviate poverty, hunger and environmental damage as well as promoting diversity as a positive force in the world. Serra Verde is in the Atlantic Rainforest – one of the world’s richest but most threatened biomes; only 8% of this rich habitat now remains!
As part of the Travel & Tourism industry we take this responsibility seriously. We aim to be become self-sufficient in energy production and organic food by 2025. We are experimenting in building with recycled materials such as vehicle tyres and plastic bottles and have ongoing solar and hydro power projects in place. We are developing our own rainwater harvesting and filtration system.
