Thailand – Australia – United Kingdom

Environmental Achievement Award

2008 was a strong year for our environmental efforts island wide. Only a few schools were recognized in Thailand and we’re very proud to be one of them. In 2008 many companies saw not just diving companies but all companies using the ECO issue to promote themselves without actually making any sacrifice or commitment. I think you’ll find that all individual schools who received this award made an actual measurable effort towards the environment.

It’s nice to know that there is still recognition for companies working hard to make a difference without using Go ECO as a business platform. Thank you to everyone who volunteered in 2008 and we look forward to continued efforts in 2009.
