At the Red Sea Development Company, we aim to set new standards in sustainable development, respecting the natural world, creating opportunities for the local communities and protecting the destination for the future.
We aspire to be the world leader in environmental sustainability across planning, construction and operation. Developmental, regulatory, and technological measures will ensure we protect, preserve and enhance the natural environment.
The master plan is informed by a comprehensive marine spatial planning simulation that projects a net positive conservation benefit of up to 30% within the next two decades.
And sensors throughout the destination will monitor environmental markers to provide consistent feedback of the surrounding waters as well as aridity and wind patterns inland.
A principled approach
We are pursuing a policy of 100 per cent renewable energy at the destination, with the ultimate objective of generating and storing energy exclusively from using renewable sources.
We plan to implement a range of policies including zero waste-to-landfill, 100 percent carbon neutrality and a total ban on single use plastics. Where the technology currently exists to achieve this, we will implement it. Where it doesn’t exist today, we will seek to develop it.
