Nevis Redoubles Its Efforts to Maintain International Environmental Standards

The Nevis Island Administration led by the Nevis Reformation Party has been promoting the “green” standard for quite some time. As the island’s economy grows along with a booming tourist industry, the government and private businesses have encouraged a responsible approach to the environment which is beginning to produce very positive results.

Among the initiatives taken is a policy on Nevis to construct no building higher than the tallest palm tree.  You’ll find no soaring skyscrapers obscuring the beautiful views on Nevis. Building height restrictions allow only two story construction throughout the island.

Strict environmental impact assessments apply to all building projects on the island whether commercial or residential.  Low density development combined with quality control takes precedence over massive mega-resort complexes.  Construction practices that incorporate natural, sustainable materials and designs which integrate energy and water saving technologies are encouraged. One hotel on Nevis, the Oualie Beach Hotel, has already achieved Green Globe accreditation.
