Passions of Paradise is proud to announce that we have recently been recognised as a Green Travel Leader by Ecotourism Australia for our commitment to environmentally responsible practices. Green Travel Leaders are trail blazers in responsible travel, having being ECO certified for 10 years or more. Long before most people were thinking about green issues, businesses like Passions saw the importance of the environment to tourism and wanted to ensure we behaved in a responsible ethical and sustainable way. Passions has a long history of commitment to ecologically sustainable business practices.
Passions of Paradise was originally certified as an ECO-Certified Advanced Ecotourism operator. The ECO Certification program, administered by Eco Tourism Australia, assures travellers that certified products are backed by a strong, well-managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences. Passions of Paradise is also proud of its status as a Climate Action Leader through Eco Tourism Australia’s “Climate Action Certification” programme. The Climate Action Certification programme is designed for all sectors of the tourism industry including hotels, attractions, tours, transport, restaurants, travel agents, tourism commissions and industry bodies. Through our efforts to promote long-term sustainability and commitment to reducing our impact on climate change, Passions of Paradise strives to promote to our passengers an understanding of climate change concepts and terminology, awareness of credible offsetting activities that can be undertaken, and providing passengers with clear and practical ways of reducing their own carbon footprint.
In addition, Passions of Paradise has been recognised as a 100% Project AWARE Dive Facility. By making a donation on behalf of each student to Project AWARE, Passions of Paradise is recognised as an ocean steward that support a clean, healthy ocean. Passions of Paradise works as a 100% AWARE Partner in Project AWARE’s two main campaigns: Marine Debris Prevention and Shark Protection.
