16 Years of Protection
600+ Dive Centers
20% Average Sustainability Improvement
With PADI's support, Reef-World recently conducted a survey about sustainability in a recovering travel world.
Over 2,400 responses were received from divers, freedivers and snorkelers in over 115 countries. Survey participants offered a broad range of perspectives spanning freedivers and one-time DSD divers through to dive professionals and business owners with over 10 years experience in our industry. Here's what we learnt:
Green Fins Standards
PADI’s dive centers, resorts and professionals adopting and educating divers on Green Fins standards. Recreational divers seeking out Green Fins Members to dive with, supporting sustainable change our ocean needs.
Sustainable Marine Tourism
A global dive industry that takes environmental standards as seriously as safety standards. A global dive community that is engaged with sustainability and knows exactly how to protect marine life when diving.
Green Fins members are dive or snorkel operators who agree to follow the Green Fins Code of Conduct, are based in an active Green Fins location and have signed the membership form. Members receive annual assessments, training and feedback to help them improve their environmental sustainability.
An active Green Fins country is a destination whose Government has adopted the programme, and has trained Green Fins assessors who are qualified to recruit, train and conduct assessments of dive and snorkel operators in that country. These are:
- Antigua and Barbuda
- Dominican Republic
- The Maldives
- The Philippines
Dive and snorkel centers operating in active Certified Green Fins locations can become members by signing (and sending in) the membership form and pledging to follow the Green Fins Code of Conduct. One of the Green Fins team will then be in touch to organize your first assessment.
不在活跃的 Green Fins 地区的潜水中心和浮潜中心仍然可以参与其中
