The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) is a closed joint-stock company wholly owned by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia. TRSDC was established to drive the development of The Red Sea Project, an ultra-luxury tourism destination that will set new standards in sustainable development and position Saudi Arabia on the global tourism map.

The project will be developed over 28,000 km2 of pristine land on Saudi Arabia’s west coast and includes a vast archipelago of more than 90 pristine islands and lagoons. The destination also features mountain canyons, dormant volcanoes, desert vistas and ancient cultural and heritage sites. The first phase of the development is planned to open in 2022 and will include hotels, unique attractions, residential properties, a marina, leisure, commercial and entertainment amenities and all supporting infrastructure.

The Red Sea Project is the world’s most exciting and ambitious tourism and hospitality project: a new luxury destination being created in one of the world’s last natural hidden treasures on The Red Sea in Saudi Arabia.

Marine debris is a global issue which seemingly makes news headlines worldwide on a daily basis. At our unspoilt destination, we want to take steps to tackle any marine debris that finds its way to our shores while supporting the local population with paid work and educating young people about the importance of minimising use of plastics and disposing of waste materials in a sustainable manner. We hope to create a sustainable industry that actively uses recycled matter as a resource to generate new jobs and business opportunities for the people living in and around our destination. As part of the #ACT4SDGs and in line with our pledge to support Ocean Conservancy with their pledge to fight for trash free seas, we are launching our company commitment on the 21st September, 'International Coastal Clean Up', a movement launched some 30 years ago. Our Marine Debris Beach Clean Up Program will last beyond one beach clean up event; This long-term program will include regular clean ups at various locations aross our 28,000 sq. km. site. Other initiatives will include educational programs for young people in partnership with institutions like King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). Any individuals or organisations keen to partner or particpate in this program can find out more by following our social media channels to receive regular updates or by reaching out to our main contact included on this profile.
