Social and Environmental Management Methods
Every year, most companies measure their performance by the profit they made. At Dadamanga, of course, we aim to make a profit, we are after all a professional tour operator company. But each year, we strive not only to generate profit, we also strive to measure how we have contributed to the environment and to the people. These are the “three P’s” of Triple Bottom Line Management; Profit, Planet, People.
We make contributions to multiple projects across Madagascar every year, including support for a school for girls (giving girls opportunities to stay in school as far as university, and helping adolescent girls to avoid starting families when they themselves are still children) and the ongoing management and protection of our extraordinary private nature reserve at Sainte Luce. At Sainte Luce Reserve, we protect the last natural coastal ebony forest in the south of Madagascar where the forest meets the sea, where lemurs leap through the trees, where turtles nest on the beach, and where crocodiles smile in our estuary. We have been protecting Sainte Luce Reserve and her thousands of species of wild flora and fauna since 2010.
