Green Fins

Green Fins

Green Fins is the only internationally-recognized voluntary eco-certification offering a sustainable management approach for diving & snorkeling operators.

The Green Fins initiative was started by the United Nations Environmental Program in collaboration with the Reef-World Foundation, a U.K-based charity and managed locally in Egypt by the Chamber of Diving & Water Sports. Egypt is the 11th country to have adopted Green Fins. 

The aim of the Green Fins management approach is to help operators reduce their negative impact on the marine environment by adopting easy & achievable Eco-friendly practices, train the staff on how they can become better environmentally-friendly role models & pass the knowledge on to their guests.

In order to become a Green Fins member, the diving or snorkeling operator will have to pass an assessment in which, the operator’s impact on the Red Sea environment will be evaluated by the Green Fins Assessors team. Once the operator has passed the assessment, they can become a member.
