Water Management

Every drop is precious.

South Africa has the third best tap water quality in the world. It is completely safe to drink - which reduces the need for bottled water and the resulting waste.

But in a country where water is a precious commodity, we are extremely conscious of saving water. And keeping it clean.

The South African Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) has launched a project to ensure that our hotels, conference venues and restaurants use water efficiently. Their intention is to promote:

Improved plumbing technology and fixtures.
The repair of leaks in hotels, conference venues and restaurants.
The reduction of effluent.
A water saving campaign for staff and guests.
The evaluation of water usage


Water Neutral

It is estimated you will consume 200 litres of water per /day during the Summit - 90% of which will return to the sewage system. You can purchase a Water Neutral Certificate for R340 ($35). There are 5000 certificates, the sale of which will raise R1.7 million to fund water and sanitation supply projects in the poor communities in South Africa.

You have the opportunity to make a difference.
