EarthCheck

EarthCheck - enhancing the environmental, economic and social sustainability of tourism worldwide

EarthCheck (previously Green Globe) is an international environmental management system for the tourism industry. With operation in over 80 countries, EarthCheck aims to help both public and private sector organisations to develop strategies and solutions that deliver measurable sustainability outcome.

Elding – the world's only PLATINUM certified whale watching company

After an extensive onsite audit in 2008 Elding proudly received the SILVER Certification from EarthCheck for the first time. A certification of this sort is by no means an endpoint but rather a simple stepping-stone on the long journey to lower our environmental impacts. Every other year we go through the onsite audit and inbetween an offsite assessment. Continual improvements are therefore an integral part of our environmental policy. In 2013 Elding received GOLD Certification from EarthCheck and in 2018 we reached PLATINUM status!

The Elding team is immensely proud to be a member of EarthCheck!
