What is the Green Star Award?
Even though the concept is very simple, the evaluation made for the PADI Green Star Award is a very important element within their environmental actions. There are relatively few companies that are being recognized for their preservation efforts. The granting of PADI’s Green Star helps introduce environmentally friendly methods in companies and encourages universal involvement.
Some diving companies have taken the lead in the efforts of preserving their community for years. Others are new in the industry but have designed their activities and procedures around the most sustainable and environmentally friendly options.
However, to do all the positive and dramatic changes needed, a real commitment must be reached from all the people that have a personal interest in the progress of the environment. PADI’s Green Star Award project challenges all diving centers to make a difference and foresees a concentrated effort to reduce our collective ecological footprint.
