Staff at the Sibaya and Windmill casinos have become the first to complete environmental courses developed by Kundiza and the Heritage Environmental Management Company.

Further certificates were issued to the staff of the Michelangelo Hotel, which is operated by Legacy Hotels and Resorts in Sandton.

Lisa Gordon-Davis, MD of Kundiza Training and Consulting, reports that clients from all over the SADC region have acquired a licence to deliver the course, including Royal Livingston in Zambia and Kalahari Sands in Windhoek.

Other properties delivering the training include Sun City, Wild Coast Sun, Drakensberg Sun, Windmill Casino, Flamingo Casino, Sibaya Casino, Meropa Sun, Carnival City and Royal Swazi Spa.

Many of these properties have been winners or finalists in the Imvelo Awards and all are members of the Heritage Environmental Programme.

"We are delighted that the environmental message is getting to all levels of our industry, and that together we can make a difference" says Gordon-Davis.

Kundiza trains trainers from client sites, and these trainers then deliver the training to their own operational staff. Consisting of six modules, the course teaches staff how to be environmentally conscious during the course of their duties by making them aware of global environmental issues such as climate change.

Staff learn practical ways to save resources such as energy and water, how to manage waste, and how to practise responsible tourism. The course concludes with a module on how to take these principles back into their homes, families and communities.
