On Necker Island, our service style means always being professional and honest, and constantly searching for new ways to improve our guest experience. Taking care of the environment is also high on our agenda. Necker Island is committed to sustainable development and respecting the local community and environment in which we operate.
Some of Necker's ambitions and initiatives include:
We know that some changes can be made immediately and others may take some time, however we believe these are some of the areas we can make our business both more sustainable and kinder to the environment.
From the first moment Sir Richard Branson visited Necker Island in 1978 he had a vision, one that has resulted in one of the world’s most exclusive island retreats. Click play on the video above to learn about Necker’s history (so far!).
Necker Island is committed to sustainable development and respecting the local community and environment in which we operate. Click play on the video above to learn about some of the planned initiatives, including our strategy to make Necker Island energy independent (no more diesel generators!).
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies for area schools or medical clinics in need, you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
On Necker Island, we are currently supporting The Robinson O'Neal Memorial Primary School. The Robinson O'Neal Memorial Primary School was one of the first schools in the area to be built for education purposes only in 1971. Prior to 1971, schools were housed in churches until the government began providing public buildings dedicated to education.
Over the years the school has evolved from a one-room building housing two classes to three additional buildings housing four classes in total, meaning more space for the growing number of students. Donations from local businesses have allowed for the addition of a computer lab and kitchen in recent years. The number of students continues to grow as education is an important focus in the BVI and all contributions are a big help!
