Dominica has received benchmark designation as a Green Globe destination for the second year in a row. This award comes from the prestigious eco-tourism organization, Green Globe 21. Dominica became the first country ever to receive this designation in October 2004.

“We are extremely pleased to have earned this prestigious designation from Green Globe 21,” stated Yvor Nassief, Dominica´s Minister of Tourism. “Dominica remains committed to the promotion and development of sustainable tourism and this recognition helps us promote our island as one of the world´s leading eco-tourism destinations while also helping us to protect its pristine natural beauty.”

Green Globe 21 requires all of its 442 total participating operations and communities to be independently assessed and certified annually by independent auditors to ensure their compliance with Green Globe 21´s standards.

The participating companies and communities must meet those standards in 9 key performance areas, such as energy consumption, solid waste production, social commitment, resource conservation, sustainability policy and more. Dominica has achieved Best Practice results in 8 of the 9 performance areas.

Green Globe 21 is the global Benchmarking, Certification and improvement system assisting the international travel and tourism industry to attain sustainability. It provides a certification system that responds directly to the major environmental problems facing the planet, including the greenhouse effect, over-use of freshwater resources, destruction of biodiversity, production of solid and biological waste and social issues.
