Green Island has a reputation as one of the most environmentally sensitive tourist developments in the world and has been awarded Advanced Ecotourism Certification for commitment to preservation and management. Maintaining a delicate balance between protecting its unique environment and catering to the needs of its visitors, all of Green Island's infrastructure and resort buildings were built with minimal impact to the vegetation and surrounding environment.
The sensitivity to the Island's spectacular natural environment doesn't stop with its creation, in fact the whole of the resorts operations are based around principles of sustainability including rainwater, water supply and an onsite desalination plant as well as a tertiary sewerage treatment plant. The resort is also self-sufficient for its power supply with four diesel generators providing power from a sound proof building.
Green Island's recycling and waste management is under strict guidelines and waste disposal on the Island is prohibited. All waste is transported back to the mainland where it is disposed of responsibly. As such, materials on the island are constantly re-used where possible. For its efforts in eco-sensitive practices, the Island has received a number of awards including Resource Conservation and Waste Management Awards and Australia's Clean Beach Challenge.
