Cybele - Socially Responsible

Staff at Cyblele
We recruit all our staff from the local area in Mpumalanga and we conduct quality training, social awareness and environmental consciousness in all the relevant divisions.
Use of energy saving light bulbs, timers on the outside lights and pool pumps.
Reduction of water consumption by sing low flush options in our toilets, and the use of rain water tanks for garden irrigation.
Management of solid waste
Solid waste is reduced by buying loose goods reducing packaging and the recycling of cans, bottles and any paper and carton boxes.
The purchase of fruit vegetables, eggs, meat and any other locally produced products from local suppliers only, and always concentrate on buying environmentally friendly and organic products only, especially since Cybele serves the freshest ingredients to the guests at all times.
