Ronald Chagoury Jr. is based in Lagos, Nigeria where he's serving as a Representative for The Chagoury Group, as well as Vice Chairman for one of the subsidiaries - South Energyx Nigeria Limited - which is privately funding a groundbreaking project: Eko Atlantic. Built off the coast of Lagos near Victoria Island, Eko Atlantic covers 10 million square metres of land reclaimed from the ocean that is ripe with opportunity for investors and the growing population of Lagos.
Through his work at both the Chagoury Group and on Eko Atlantic, Ronald Chagoury Jr. is able to actualize two of his life's missions: building more sustainable cities and making existing cities greener. Ronald is focused on sustainability as whole, looking for ways to cut carbon emissions and combat climate change. He's interested in halting deforestation - one of the quickest ways to reverse carbon emissions - as well as new technology like lab-grown meat, which produces 80-90% fewer carbon emissions than cattle.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
