The question that started everything
In 2020, our founders watched in dismay as the African safari industry crumbled around them in the face of COVID-19. We saw lodges shutting down, conservation efforts drying up, and friends losing their jobs.
Recognising the urgency, a think tank of sustainability and tourism experts from the likes of Nianova, The Long Run, Preferred by Nature, and Cambridge Institutes came together with a shared goal: to find an answer to the question, “How do we improve the tourism industry’s resilience in the face of these challenges?”
With the sector employing more than 10% of the world’s working population, and producing almost 9% of total global emissions, the importance of resilience cannot be overstated.
But sustainability is scary. And it's complex.
That’s why Weeva was designed by sustainable tourism experts as a complete support system for operationalising and managing sustainability. Using the latest technologies, imbued with leading science, Weeva makes sure your efforts translate into real change.
By bringing all this knowledge and information into one place, explained in simple language, and with clear guidance, we have built something our industry has been waiting for: a holistic sustainability management platform.
Because that's exactly what we need – something to guide us to do better without the guesswork. Incrementally, every day.
Whether you own or manage a single holiday apartment, a lodge in the wilderness or a multinational chain of hotels; we’re here to help you make a meaningful difference.
What we do
We lead with science
We use data to guide our decisions, measure our impact and be as efficient as possible, and we help you do the same. Our information comes from experts and specialists who know what works.
We unravel the jargon
Sustainability is rife with buzzwords. We care about people, action and impact, so we use simple language and say what we mean.
We put resilience first
Sustainability is good for the planet – but it’s great for business. We champion the use of sustainable action to boost resilience, efficiency and, ultimately, profitability.
Tourism can no longer progress on ideals alone. We have the opportunity to turn idealism into realism, by using technology to take measurable action.
The hospitality industry employs 10% of the world’s working population. We can truly lead the way on sustainability. Let’s make it happen.
