Celebrating Sustainability: Ceningan Divers & Evolution Together Set a New Standard with Perfect (zero-impact) Green Fins Scores

Green Fins Assessment 2024

I’m excited to share that Ceningan Divers has once again ranked in the Green Fins Top-10 Global Operator list. This year, we’re thrilled to co-share the top spot together with Evolution, as both of our operations have achieved zero-impact Green Fins scores in our annual assessments. This remarkable achievement is a testament to our continuous commitment and the rigorous environmental stewardship that defines Ceningan Divers. Ranking among the top 10 global dive operators consistently since 2018, our journey highlights a steadfast dedication to sustainability and marine conservation.

Our Sustainable Legacy

Our path to sustainable diving excellence is marked by relentless improvement and innovation, during the past 8 years, we have focused our energies and efforts to achieve conservation excellence. Ranking in the top position since 2018, our goal to develop a zero-impact dive operation has been a passionate pursuit over our past five annual assessments. We worked tirelessly to improve our score, and our offerings to reduce our environmental impact: From transitioning our boat from 2-stroke engines to more efficient 4-strokes or adopting natural solutions for gear cleaning and resort maintenance, these significant steps helped us reduce our environmental footprint. Moreover, advocating for reef-safe sunscreen, creating pre-arrival educational tools for our guests and students and spearheading conservation and citizen science initiatives underscore our holistic approach to sustainability.
