Sustainability at Diamond Waters Caravan Park

Sustainability is inextricably linked to the way in which we manage Diamond Waters Caravan Park. Our business runs on a very simple philosophy, if we look after:

  • The environment where we operate
  • The people who live in our park
  • The people who visit and stay at our park
  • The surrounding communities in which we operate

Then our business will look after itself.

We have started our journey to transition towards a more sustainable future by setting ambitious goals for our park over the next two years:

  • We aim to reduce our water consumption by more than 20%
  • We aim to reduce our power consumption by more than 20% and transition to renewable energy where possible
  • We aim to reduce our waste to landfill by more than 30%
  • We aim to increase the natural biodiversity in the park by planting more than 100 native species of lower strata plants
  • We are already a major contributor to the local communities via tourism and employment, however, we aim to improve our social impact on the surrounding communities by enabling access to our park for local farmers to sell their produce and local business to access more customers.

Diamond Waters Caravan Park and the Sustainable Development Goals

The 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the road map to further the advancement towards a sustainable planet. We at Diamond Waters Caravan Park acknowledge this and are constantly working towards contributing towards the goals and targets.

These are the goals and targets we contribute to:

UN SDG Specific Targets

 

  • By 2030, substantially increase water-use efficiency across all sectors and ensure sustainable withdrawals and supply of freshwater to address water scarcity and substantially reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity
  • By 2020, protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes

 

  • By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix
  • By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency

 

 

 

  • Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors
  • Promote development-oriented policies that support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, and encourage the formalization and growth of micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, including through access to financial services
  • Improve progressively, through 2030, global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, in accordance with the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production, with developed countries taking the lead

 

 

  • By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities

 

  • By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources
  • By 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses
  • By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse

 

  • By 2020, sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts, including by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration in order to achieve healthy and productive oceans

 

 

 

  • By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements
  • Take urgent and significant action to reduce the degradation of natural habitats, halt the loss of biodiversity and, by 2020, protect and prevent the extinction of threatened species
  • Mobilize and significantly increase financial resources from all sources to conserve and sustainably use biodiversity and ecosystems
