Fushifaru Maldives Awarded Green Globe Certification
Fushifaru Maldives, Lhaviyani Atoll, has been awarded the Green Globe Certification for its notable sustainability efforts.
Green Globe is the premier sustainability certification and performance improvement program developed specifically for the travel and tourism industry. It provides organisations with a framework to conduct a comprehensive assessment of their sustainability performance, through which they can monitor improvements and obtain the certification.
At Fushifaru Maldives, sustainability projects are led by General Manager Ahmed Siaar, who has been incorporating sustainable tourism principles and practices into his operation since Fushifaru’s opening on October 24, 2017.
Fushifaru is determined to be actively involved in conserving biodiversity and the surrounding ecosystem. Recent projects include a coral propagation project in collaboration with Best Dives. Fushifaru also features zero single-use plastic and offers guest the chance to contribute by purchasing a reusable bag for USD 15. Half of the proceeds goes towards educating the local community on sustainable living.
