The Grupo Puntacana Foundation (FGPC) is a not-for-profit foundation established in 1994 to protect and preserve the natural resources of the Punta Cana region, while contributing to the sustainable development of the Dominican Republic.
The Foundation confronts environmental challenges by developing innovative solutions and implementing them in demonstration projects, which later can be expanded and replicated much larger-scale initiatives.
“We try to provide concrete solutions to different environmental challenges, particularly in the tourism and development industry, and share those experiences with other sectors of the society. Rather than tell businesses and society what they can’t do, we create examples of what they can and should seek to do. We have worked with solid waste, coral reefs, endangered species, private ecological reserves and many other areas, providing innovative solutions that can inspire others to act.” Jake Kheel, Vice President of the Grupo Puntacana Foundation.
