Schooner Ruth Partners

Every industry in Barbados is experiencing challenging times; it is vital that companies can differentiate themselves and lead by example. Promoting your company and Barbados through sustainable energy (wind & solar) and helping reduce the carbon footprint in our region are very powerful initiatives. Endorsing Barbados through a green lifestyle and supporting the training and education of young Barbadians through employment opportunities is crucial.

We hope the ideals of the Caribbean Sail Cargo Initiative and Schooner Ruth fit the corporate mission, values and business policies of your Company. Our ultimate goal is collaboration with a few select Barbados Manufacturers and Distributors to help us achieve the operational stage, planned for February 2015 and we invite Companies of like mind and mission to contact our President, Mr. Ian Dash on 246 256 6688 in order to find and discuss mutually beneficial ideas that can expand this worthwhile venture.
