Wolfs Company strongly beliefs in the importance of the private sector to create a sustainable island economy. To investigate the opportunities and difficulties for sustainable development on Bonaire, we conducted a survey among businesses in all economic sectors on Bonaire. In general, business owners on Bonaire seem very aware of their impact on the natural environment and are willing to invest in more sustainable business models. Also, business owners consider themselves responsible alongside the island government to safeguard sustainable development on the island.
On a small island as Bonaire, however, businesses see a lack of opportunity for financing of sustainable investments. Also, the government is expected by the private sector to support a more sustainable development path.
