We embrace the ancient Taino concept of Bohīo, or protecting the land because we feel it’s our responsibility to protect and care for our planet and all life that depends on it. We support companies and non-profit organizations that aim to protect the environment and strive to help people live without fear of racism, discrimination, and lack of opportunity. Our philosophy is Tikkun Olam: doing our part to help heal the world.
CW’s sustainable development actions are effective in soliciting community consensus toward a future of green thinking. We particularly focus on responsible consumption management as a way of implementing sustainable practices in the most efficient manner. From solar power plants powering our facilities, to zero-emission electric vehicles getting people from one place to another, we take responsibility of our consumption and production to best reduce our impact on our environment.

CW aligns with SDGs’ sustainable, ecological, and social practices to build a sustainable DR economy and promoting regional integration. CW’s network of influential investors from leading assets management firms, public pension funds, labor, investment funds, foundations, and endowment.
The challenges DR and the world face have never been greater. We have less than a decade to keep the global average temperature from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius and avoid climate change’s worst impacts.
It is a small world, after all. Deforestation in Pedernales and the resulting loss of biodiversity have a devastating impact on Canada and the USA’s ecosystem -as DR is the winter home of many birds from there. Millions of Dominican and Caribbean youth lack the opportunity to first-class education, health facilities, and social mobility.
CW’s Eco-District offers a roadmap to a sustainable economy with social and ecological tourism to bring progress to all Dominicans and the Caribbean region in response to these challenges.
CW’s greatest impacts will be realized through our collaborations — with investors, companies, nonprofit organizations, policymakers, and countless others who share CW’s commitment to a more sustainable world.
Today, over 400 of the largest publicly-traded companies are committed to SDGs. CW’s partnership with many of these powerful networks of investors, companies, nonprofits, and working capital market influencers is important for the project’s funding.
We are grateful for President Abinader’s vision and dedication to the SDGs and bring progress to DR. We are in uncharted waters, and it is truly an all-hands-on-deck moment. We need the entire world to join us because we cannot tackle these problems alone.
We are on this journey together—every one of us needs to scale up our ambitions and actions to shape and secure our future in the Dominican Republic. We’re confident that with Caribbean World, we can get there.

Pedernales, Dominican Republic. It is located on an unspoiled peninsula within Jaragua National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the largest, most biologically diverse protected areas in the Caribbean. The area is a crucial refuge for many endemic animals, plants, and insects, some of which are still unknown to science and native Taino cultural sites. This enchanting tropical paradise is blessed with some of the world’s best beaches that will offer an unparalleled blend of luxury and eco-sustainable experiences.
Positioning DR as a prime global tourist destination accelerates its economic growth while promoting education and regional integration with ecotourism leading the SDGs to transition to a sustainable world. We believe that tourism can protect Pedernales’ natural and cultural riches and create economic opportunities for the Dominican Republic and the entire region. Caribbean World is dedicated to minimizing the negative impacts of tourism and maximizing its positive benefits for people, cultures, nature, and wildlife.
Caribbean World will be developed by various dynamic private and public investors. CW will also partner with Global Leading Hotels, Cruise & Airlines Companies, OTA & Tour Operators to create the world’s most successful destinations.
