The Mustique Environment


The Mustique Company is working hard to preserve areas of natural beauty and to minimise the environmental impact on Mustique.

Much of the island remains undeveloped leaving great swathes of natural habitat for the local wildlife. Some of the roads have been left as dirt tracks to minimize the footprint, and a comprehensive recycling programme has been initiated ensuring that waste is environmentally treated and recycled.

The island’s shareholders see themselves as the island’s custodians and are deeply committed to its long-term conservation for future generations. Their concern for the members of its staff and the development of the local communities goes hand in hand with this commitment.

Responding to increasing global climate challenges and international development, an official CSR strategy has been created to incorporate the future protection of the island’s resources and its people.

The Mustique Company’s CSR strategy is based on the three major sustainability pillars: People, Planet and Prosperity and will follow the principles of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), to address these pillars accordingly.
