Ycona goes beYond
embracing values that represent the founding pillars of the eco-sustainability
project and local content valorisation
. The Ycona Team has the ambition to educate and train the new generations of talents of the nearby schools, among which Uroa and Marumbi, with the dream to employ them in the years to come in positions of responsibility, promoting diversity and meritocracy.
Moreover a dedicated area of the resort has been already identified as the “Ycona eco-Park”
where sustainable, renewable energy solutions to reduce the resort's CO2-emissions
, high technology local water treatment facilities, farm-to-table solutions and circular economy initiatives will be developed to contribute in preserving our wonderful planet, promote local economy and valorise even further such a wonderful country that is Tanzania.
As a mission, all the Ycona Guests will contribute to this eco-dream and 5% of their booking expenditures done via the website will be directed towards the “Ycona SDG Fund’’. This will be used to finance the Ycona eco-project, so that every Guest will help proactively to achieve this remarkable, sustainable dream and be more socially responsible just by being our Guest.
Ycona promotes all the 17 SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) initiatives and the 2030 sustainable agenda of the United Nations and has the target to lead the eco-resort sector in the whole East Africa.
