In order to promote energy conservation, the hotel has
• LED (Light Emitting Diodes) and energy saving bulbs fixed throughout the hotel
• Visitors are briefed upon arrival on the need to conserve energy through switching off unnecessary lights.

Conservation Criteria
Community Criteria
Solid waste management Proper waste separation – organic and non-organic – is conducted at source including in the guest rooms.
The waste is further segregated at the waste management centre into plastics, glass and metallic tins. Monitoring of the waste is later done through weighing and recording (types and quantity) on daily basis.
The organic waste is composted at the facility’s kitchen garden.
The rest of the solid waste (glass, metal, plastic paper) is collected and transported by a NEMA licenced waste handler- Plastic Keen Cleaners for disposal.
Further the facility has invested in an in-house domestic water purifying system which ensures water is fit for human consumption. These initiatives have significantly reduced on plastic waste generation.
Water management The facility’s main source of water is a borehole. The water is pumped from the borehole, filtered and then passed through a reverse osmosis system, which is housed in the Severin Green Building. The reverse osmosis system is run for 6 hours in a day and purifies water to a portable state.
Visitor communication & education Guest rooms are equipped with information folders detailing activities and operations of Severin Sea Lodge. The guide showcases profiles on the unique areas/spots within the North Coast regions.
Visitors are briefed upon arrival on the hotel’s operations. The hotel has a guest information notice board fitted with available activities.
Pollution The hotel kitchen is properly ventilated, fixed with air extractors, kitchen hub, and AC system. This is aimed at enhancing the working conditions of the staff.
Low filament energy saving bulbs are used for lighting hotel pathways at night. The paths lights are also fixed with a cover to reduce on light pollution.
Environmental conservation The facility has a tree nursery within the premises. This nursery is used to propagate seedlings that are later replanted within the facility.
The hotel conducts Beach clean ups every first Sunday in collaboration with the staff, guests and beach operators.
Severin Sea Lodge has heavily invested in renewable solar energy to curb reliance on other non-renewable fuels. This initiative has gone a long way in reducing the carbon footprint of the facility.
Waste water management Severin Sea Lodge has invested in a biological wastewater treatment system that manages both its grey and black effluent.
The system operates in the following way;
• All wastewater is pressure pumped to subterranean collection basins where is it passed through a screen spiral filter to remove non-biodegradable bulky material.
• The separated solids are removed from the effluent through a dump.
• Oils and fats from the Kitchen effluent are removed using a fat separator.
• At the main treatment plant, the effluent first goes into a settling tank where other remaining solids are removed. It then goes through an aeration tank where microbes (EM2) are used to degrade the pollutants.
• Resultant sludge from the plant is used as a fertilizer in the hotel’s vegetable garden. The resultant water is recycled for irrigation within the facility.
Swimming pool water is cleaned through sieving, vacuum cleaning and a backwash system. PH levels (i.e. acidity and alkalinity levels) are checked on a daily basis.
The Lodge conducts regular water effluent sampling in compliance with Environmental Management and Coordination (Water Quality) Regulations of 2006.
As a result of the effective wastewater treatment at the facility, Severin Sea Lodge has been exempted from obtaining an effluent discharge license by NEMA.
