Regional developer aims to make a difference through CSR agenda

Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica

DUBAI, UAE -- Leading regional resort developer Range Developments has announced the formal launch of its corporate and social responsibility (CSR) program. It will focus its efforts on four main areas:

1. Children
2. Family
3. Entrepreneurs
4. Communities

One of the foremost developers of luxury resorts in the Caribbean, including the Park Hyatt St Kitts and the Cabrits Resort Kempinski Dominica, has launched a dedicated section on its website to allow people to track progress and suggest ways to access support for projects.

Range Developments already has a proven track record of CSR in the countries that it operates. When Tropical Storm Erika hit Dominica, Range responded rapidly with a boatload of food, water and medical supplies. In St Kitts and Nevis it has sponsored summer camps for children as well as scholarships to schools.

Range Developments is determined to achieve considerable results with its comprehensive CSR strategy and aims to be on the forefront of all aspects of the CSR.

“With the launch of this initiative, we are here to say that Range Developments not only undertakes an environmentally responsible approach to the construction of our high-end resorts but also looks forward to closer links with the people of islands we operate in,” says Kamal Shehada, development director of Range Developments.

To ensure execution of the company’s vision, a dedicated CSR team has been established whose sole role it is to work with local communities to understand their main vulnerabilities and to identify the areas Range Developments can take the lead on.

‘I’m truly honoured to be part of such an impactful organization – one that invests in local communities and places the success and growth of its CSR as paramount and integral to its core values as a business,” says Kamila Ondrackova, CSR regional manager at Range Developments. “Many of our CSR initiatives bridge the gap between local talent and industry, creating fantastic opportunities for employment and economic growth. I look forward to supporting our local communities and am very excited for the future.”

Range Developments focuses on luxury developments that are well-designed, sustainable and desirable. Park Hyatt St Kitts, the company’s flagship project, set to open its doors in November 2017, won the prestigious Best New Hotel Construction and Design Caribbean award at The International Property Awards 2014-2015; and the coveted award of Best International New Hotel Construction and Design 2014-2015.
