Responsible food sourcing can have a huge impact on both global and local biodiversity threats. Soneva Fushi and Soneva Kiri already implement strict food sourcing policies, but we want to do more.
As part of our Environmental Profit and Loss account (eP&L), we are revisiting our food sourcing to trace food from farm (or sea) to plate and also to look at how we can minimise our broader environmental impact as a result. In the areas of fish sourcing in particular we will look at how we can assess the sustainability of our current fish sourcing policies.
We are calculating the true cost of ecosystem services used to produce our food products by land use, water consumption, energy consumption and CO2 emissions. We have done detailed studies of 44 of our most used products, which account for 75% of our total food purchase by dollar value.
