It is from our little corner of paradise, at the other end of the world that we conceived and introduced this new section "BLUE". This new section is so important today in our eyes that it has been allocated to the main headlines of the our homepage.
Like many of you, 2020 forced us into confinement for many weeks, and these times of confinement have led us to ask ourselves many questions, in all areas: economic, social, societal and environmental.
Tourism has been our business since 2002, and the following questions arise:
This is what we call BLUE: the "blue approach", the "blue response", the "blue economy", a concept dear to Gunter Pauli. The "blue" here is opposed to a "red" economy based on excessive and inconsequential exploitation, but also complements a "green" economy by enriching it with a more global and circular vision of the issues, and therefore of the answers.
Oazure has always advocated and fought for tourism in Mauritius off the beaten track, and has made people experience Mauritius differently! But this is not enough anymore. The 2020 sanitary crisis reminded us painfully how necessary it is to go deeper into the "differently".
This is why we decided to make commitments. Not the kind of commitments that one makes based on a prayer imposed by a storm, but commitments resulting from the conviction that things must change, commitments that we keep because they are rooted in our deepest beliefs and in our hearts.
Tourism is the number one industry in this country, and doing without it is inconceivable, but we can undoubtedly do much better, for all stakeholders in this ecosystem.
As a result, Oazure has started working on setting up the following BLUE projects, since March 2020:
For a responsible carbon footprint:
For a sustainable environmental, social and societal record:
For a different kind of tourism:
Each time we bring a new project to life, we will add a new new chapter to this section, thus presenting to you the fruit of our work, our BLUE ACTIONS.

In this first chapter of our new headline "Blue" , we will talk about the inception of our project to decarbonize your flights to Mauritius.
Please find below a comprehensive list of consumer products that are made in Mauritius. These products are either produced in Mauritius (best case) or at least packaged in Mauritius. In both cases, in choosing preferably these products, you would certainly make a "green choice" for our planet.
We take our commitment to contributing to worthy causes in Mauritius seriously and have decided to donate 5% of our profits after corporate tax to Caritas, a Mauritian NGO whose main objective is to fight against poverty on the island. Our contributions will be allocated to "Lacaz Lespwar", a charitable association under Caritas Mauritius, which has been founded 10 years ago by Christiane Pasnin.
