“Satisfying the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy theirs”
For decades, Pacific Beachcomber has continuously implemented eco-friendly practices that are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Now with the ongoing development and construction of the luxury eco-resort “The Brando” on Tetiaroa Island, even more ambitious goals and levels of requirements are targeted. The infrastructures and the community that will eventually settle permanently will meet the highest standards and requirements in energy and environmental design, and rely on purely renewable energy. The scientific research eco-station which is fully integrated to the development will play a key role as far as research, conservation and education are concerned.
Last August 2011, at the UCB (University of California, Berkeley) Gump Station on Moorea Island where the “Island Sustainability Workshop” was held, President and CEO Richard Bailey developed the following topic: “The Brando, how to build a Zero net carbon luxury resort in the tropics,” illustrating the major goals (see Presentation) for Tetiaroa. Dan Kammen, Director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energey Laboratory at UCB, was present and is involved in innovating technological aspects in renewable energy.
