Leading the fight against climate change within the hospitality sector

By Sonu Shivdasani

When it comes to stewardship of our planet’s natural resources, companies must become “solutions” rather than “problems”, writes Sonu Shivdasani, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Soneva. He is convinced that all the businesses in his group can make small changes to their business models, which have no negative impacts on either profitability nor guests’ perception of the company’s products.
