The St. Regis Princeville Resort honors the traditions and culture of Hawai'i. We collaborate with community partners for the betterment of Kaua'i to improve quality of life for our island home and the world we live in.
The St. Regis Princeville Resort believes that every person on Earth deserves a healthy environment and the fundamental benefits that nature provides. But our planet is experiencing an unprecedented drawdown of these resources, and it is only by protecting nature and its gifts – a stable climate, fresh water, healthy oceans and reliable food – that we can ensure a better life for everyone, everywhere.
We consider our responsibility to Conservation to be all encompassing, focusing on the following pillars;
Creating a sustainable approach to operating a luxury resort. The St. Regis Princeville Resort is committed to securing the health and well-being of the world's biodiversity – every plant, animal and human being on Earth. One of the greatest threats to these efforts is climate change. In fact, scientific evidence suggests that the current trajectory of climate change patterns surpasses even worst-case scenarios, and could lead to catastrophic and devastating consequences for all life on Earth.
Understanding and protecting the sources and flows of fresh water. Water is vital for more than direct human health: water also sustains freshwater ecosystems, which in turn provide food and livelihoods for millions.
Ensuring nature's ability to provide food for human needs. Working with our local farming community to supply the resort with produce. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) defines food security as a "situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life."
Minimizing environmental pressures on human health. Nature provides the most comprehensive healthcare package on Earth. It is made up of climate control; clean, renewable water sources; abundant foods from forest and sea; and, when needed, medicines to treat disease. If we act now, we can save these natural systems that are so vital to human health. Our lives depend on it.
Valuing the culture of Hawai'i.
Safeguarding the unknown and as-yet undiscovered benefits that nature provides.
