In this video, Richard Branson speaks about the inspiration behind Virgin’s endeavor to bring people to space and opens up about his personal life telling us the story of how Necker Island began, how it became a haven for endangered species and an experiment in sustainable living. Necker is focusing on an energy efficient future, switching from diesel power to a mixture of solar and wind power as part of the Ten Island Renewable Challenge. The island is setting an example to prove why it makes economic as well as environmental sense to move from fossil fuels to renewables.
