committed to following best practices in respect to the land and the people of Anguilla:
- Native plants are relocated to a dedicated nursery, and replanted on completion of Zemi Beach in mid-2015.
Beach offers jobs and training to Anguillans: 250 jobs for local workers during construction, and 175 jobs when the resort is fully operational.

- The construction remains environmentally conscious, minimizing resources and avoiding heavy emissions and excess waste.
- Coastal areas remain untouched; propane torches used near the
beach are configured to avoid affecting nesting sea turtles.
- All fish and seafood offered will be just caught; seasonal fruits and vegetables will ripen naturally, in the sun.
- Natural materials and
sustainable hardwoods are used throughout the project; chemically treated and re-engineered materials are avoided.
- Residences are fully insulated to maximize energy efficiency and minimize noise.
- Windows and
doors are wind resistant and shatterproof, built to Miami-Dade standards.
