‘We calculated our carbon-dioxide emission in 2021 to be close to 150,000kg that equates to our offset-requirement to plant over 500 mangrove seedlings,’ says Sowane.
Since the re-opening of borders on 1 December 2021 and with the level of tourist transport the company is servicing in 2022, Sowane is anticipating for the company’s CO2 emissions to be more than double that of 2021.
TEWAKA is an iTaukei word that means ‘to grow/expand’ and the company logo is themed on mangrove plants. ‘Mangroves are the nursery of marine life, they represent strength and resilience plus they absorb and store carbon long-term making them a critical solution in the fight against climate change,’ adds Sowane. firstname.lastname@example.org
